The Makers Order - The Daily Haiku - Web Comic Aaron Blakeley Blogger Longview Texas

Sometimes when I consider this world, our cells on up to our relationships, I am stunned. Believe what you will of creation whether it be a literal seven days or the cosmic dance of creation condescended to us as seven days. Our universe if a finely tuned watch and it is only the Makers order that keeps it in check. Both in his verbal order to exist and his organization of ever single atom and physical law. Did you know there is speculation that our brains are actually quantum computers? It is laughable to me that we would deny a supernatural beings existence all the while there is nothing natural about nature’s existence.

I see it in you and me today and everyday. We claw about our lives full of purpose all the while always asking what my purpose is. We are so introspective that we end up out of balance. Is there not beauty in balance? Is there not purpose in the serendipitous architecture of human personality and interests cast into the perfectly balanced machinations of reality and the cosmos. Should we not look to the great watchmaker he who invented time and spent an eternity considering you before he mentioned the word light and ask: “who am I?”

A heart full of leaves - poem - Aaron Blakeley - Gideon in leaves

I do no rake my yard I do not mow it My wife loves a clean kept place, but my heart longs for nature to take all that order we people produce and dash it with attrition and careful vines that reach and stretch and crush and nash and mince and rot and grow and change and mature and die   With my heart full of leaves and light peeking through trees and a mind focused on the source of all these wonderful vistas and the beauty of a wife who’s nature is lovely So I will pay to have the lawn kept clean.

With Me and Rock

With Me and Rock

Time with me and rock. Children love rocks, always picking them up. One time one of my little girls was complaining about her backpack being too heavy. We sat down one evening and cleaned out her backpack. There was a lot of junk, yes but there was also about two pounds of gravel in the bottom of it; her “rock collection.” We disposed of the gravel but I have never forgotten how all of my children just love rocks. Remember to spend time with your children doing the things that they love.

With Grace - Aaron Blakeley - The Daily Haiku

Love is complex and yet so simple. In love for my children, I will do what is best for them. The complexity comes in when that love is not something the other party wants. Between adults, this is a big deal, with child and parent it is necessary. My children never want to go to be but they need to. They never want to read but the need to. I love them enough to require compliance. Always with grace.
