I woke up in the early morning hours with thoughts of the Holy Spirit coming to my mind. So I got up and wrote them down and thought I would share them ---- 

 "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters." Now this very Spirit, this Holy, wonderful, loving Spirit of God comes into our life and world and brings His bountiful gifts.
Now we may be like the disciples in Ephesus who were visited by Paul when he asked them, did you receive the Holy Spirit? And they said to him, “No, we have not even heard that there is a Holy Spirit.” You too, may ask, who is this Spirit? But you know Him, you see him in the green of the trees; the abundance of the corn as one kernel is multiplied a hundredfold; the color in a blade of grass; the nurture of a mother deer as she lies with her fawn; the romantic hush of a silent walk under moonlight or the fragrance that lingers from a fresh cut bouquet that fills the room.
Yes, the Holy Spirit brings life into our worlds, it pulsates in our very blood as we experience His creative work, our minds fill with anticipation as He brings inspiration to the page, canvass, music or dance! Currents, breezes, flushes of color on the tendril or the cheek, sparkle in the eye, welling laughter, tearful sympathy, strength in our bonds of love. The gushing over a pet; sharing the joy of life with a newborn infant, the gleeful peals of a two year old, the intoxicating crush of a new found love, the sense of bond with a hug.
Oh, the Holy Spirit! Have you heard of Him? His work is in the world today, in the heart today: in your life! Resist Him not as He calls to usher you into an even closer association and a clearer image of the living God!
