What Makes You Worship?

Here are some things that caused me to worship last week...

Meaningful interactions with friends.

Sunrise near Neopolis on the Aegean.

A breeze, just when I thought I'd explode from heat.

A body that works well enough to walk and carry things and go up and down steps and swim.

Delicious food. >>>

Listening to Steve Green perform.

Seeing kittens.

Perfect timing... A group of photographers rose before six to catch a sunrise over Athens on film, and just as it looked like the sun would appear, a huge cruise boat blocked our view. Oh, no!

But after the boat crept past (it seemed to take forever), we discovered to our delight that the sun had not yet appeared after all.

Then there it came.

We snapped like crazy, and then another cruise boat blocked our view.

Still, the precise moment we needed the sea clear, nothing blocked us. >>>

What has caused you to worship?

I was in Philadelphia last week. I took the Regional Rail downtown and walked to The Corner Bakery. While sipping coffee, nibbling a bagel, and reading a book, I looked out at the bustling city at 8:00 a.m. on the corner of 17th and JFK. I've always wanted to be in the heart of a city like this and being there made me feel bright and alive.

Later that day I stood in front of a Matisse, Braque, and Picasso at the Philadelphia Museum of Art while listening to Mozart on my iPod. I felt awe.
