Where Is The Door to God?

Where Is The Door to God?

Where is the door to God? 
In the sound of a barking dog,
in the ring of a hammer,
in a drop of rain,
in the face of everyone, 
in all we can behold. 

             In 2009, everyone knew the opening lyrics to The Fray's You Found Me, "I found God
on the corner of First and Amistad...". God is wherever people are when they find him, when they need him, when they talk to him. Poets have long known that God is in the eyes of your beloved, in the first snow of the season, in the miracle of a new day, etc. As humans, we seem to forget this from time to time, but if you prayed to God now, he would be near enough to hear you, holding your hand as you read this.
