Acadia Reflections

June 4, 2018

My Dad always said, "Nothing so bad, but what there is something good about it".  Not grammatically correct Dad, but message received.

 

Running in downpours isn't my favorite thing, but I stopped in my tracks when I saw this plant. There was this beautiful drop of pure rain sitting in the center of the bract and it was mesmerizing.

 I thought of Dan Fogelberg's song, "Magic Every Moment".

The excerpt from that song fits this picture perfectly.

 

"You can see forever in a single drop of dew.
You can see that same forever

if you look down deep inside of you.
There's a spark of the creator in every living thing,
He respects me when I work but He so loves me when I sing."

 

The entire song has this wonderful message and I think it's worth putting it here.

 

I awoke this morning to a shattering sound
And I went downstairs and found these shards of glass strewn all around
And there upon the floor I found this poor broken dove
And it made me realize how very fragile is this life that we so love

I came back up to bed and I held you so tight
And I prayed up to the Father, oh I prayed with all my might
That He'd always keep you with me, that He'd always keep you safe
And when I went downstairs I found that dove had somehow up and flown away

There's a magic every moment
There's a miracle each day
There's a magic every moment
Oh won't you let the music play
Oh won't you let the music play

On a high and windy island I was gazing out to sea
When a long forgotten feeling came and took control of me
It was then the clouds burst open and the sun came pouring through
When it hit those dancing waters in an instant all eternity I knew

There's so much we take for granted, there's so much we never say
We get caught up in the motion of just a living day to day
We are fettered to the future, we are prisoners of the past
And we never seem to notice 'til our lives have finally slipped right through our grasp

 

There's a magic every moment
There's a miracle each day
There's a magic every moment
Oh won't you let the music play
Oh won't you let the music play

You can see forever in a single drop of dew
You can see that same forever if you look down deep inside of you
There's a spark of the creator in every living thing
He respects me when I work but He so loves me when I sing

There's a magic every moment
There's a miracle each day
There's a magic every moment
Oh won't you let the music play
Oh won't you let the music play

 

There is a magic in our moments here on earth.  We need to honor and believe in the sacredness of our lives.

 

Thanks Dan, for reminding us of the sheer, precious, magic of each of our lives.  Hug my girl for me! 

 

 

Go to You Tube and listen to the entire song; it's terrific.  Actually the whole album, River of Souls, is my all time favorite of his.
