Touch -- This Week's Contest Sense

This week's sense is TOUCH!

"Our sense of touch never turns off; it is constantly operating, helping us explore our world, educating us about the nature of things." (Awaken Your Senses, Pg. 94)

Today (Feb. 20) is the start of week three of the “Awaken Your Senses Contest.” The contest is featured on:

• Awaken Your Senses Facebook Page
• Brent’s Blog
• Beth's Blog

Here’s how it works:

1. This week, you are invited to pay attention to your sense of TOUCH and notice how it introduces you to the wonder of God.
2. If something cool happens, post a description about that experience on the Awaken Your Senses FB Page or Beth or Brent’s blogs. (All entries must be submitted by Sunday at noon.)
3. Brent and Beth will choose a winner on Sunday evening and that person will receive a $25 gift card for a gift related to TOUCH.
4. Brent and Beth will also do a drawing from the names of everyone who participated each week and the weekly winner of the random drawing will receive an autographed copy of Awaken Your Senses.
5. The winners will be announced on Awaken Your Senses Facebook Page and Brent and Beth’s blogs on each Monday when a new sense begins!

I bought the flowers to celebrate a new job, a new house, warm weather, life. Snapdragons, lilies, and pink roses which I divided among three bouquets: one for my room, one for my mother-in-law, and one for my father-in-law in a skilled nursing facility. As the roses wilted, one by one, I took them outside to the wooded backyard to spread the petals in the wind. Their velvety flesh was both light and heavy, both pale and rich. A few petals landed nearby, while others drifted to the edge of the forest. And then today, I saw a chickadee lift one up and out, perhaps to line its nest with a bit of blush "wallpaper". The thrill of spreading this soft beauty made me rejoice, and to give thanks to God for all that I have been given, and all that I have given away.
