Go bush

Seek and you will find God’s signature all over the Australian bush. Pull up beside her creeks. Be still and listen. Sit under the majestic gums and soak up their history. Listen to their stories in the rustle of the leaves. Is your vision wide enough for the wonder of a myriad stars in the night sky? Check out the stock camp and the bush telly. Breathe deeply and fill your nostrils with branding smoke. Run an eye over the cattle. Discover the parable in every horse. Marvel at the working dogs – filling the shoes of one and a half working men. Even lantana and burr are speaking to us. The bush offers lessons richer than any you will find in a classroom.

May these devotions bring some of the abundance of life in the bush to you.
