Feeling God's presence all day long

This morning I looked at the entry for November 1st in Streams in the Desert, a daily devotional by Mrs. Charles Cowan. It is one of my favorite sources for inspiring thoughts. It was compiled many years ago when she was with her Missionary husband serving in China.  Here is an excerpt that will stay with me all day today. It helps answer that question, "How can I feel God's presence?".

It is not necessary to be always speaking to God or always hearing from God, to have communion with Him; there is an inarticulate fellowship more sweet than words. The little child can sit all day long beside its busy mother and, although few words are spoken on either side, and both are busy, the one at his absorbing play, the other at her engrossing work, yet both are in perfect fellowship He knows that she is there, and she knows that he is all right. Every little thing he does is touched with the sense of His approval and blessing. How sweet it is to feel God so close at all times, filling all space with divine Love.

Nothing can separate the two. That is how it is with us and our Father Mother God.

It just that simple. And wonderful.
