Nicholas opened the white picket fence as he quietly munched on a bagel. He woke up late this morning and had to hurry to shower, eat and get over to the Creator's house. The Creator came out the front door wearing white workout clothes and a baseball cap, just as Nicholas came up the front steps.
" Good morning Nicholas" he said as he adjusted his ball cap and picked up a walking stick that was lying by the rocking chair. " Care to join me for a walk this beautiful morning".
" Sure" Nicholas replied as he quickly ate the last of his bagel. " Sorry I'm late, I overslept this morning".
" That's ok" the Creator said with a chuckle. " I waited for you".
With the help of the walking stick, he and Nicholas opened the white picket fence and began a slow walk down the sidewalk.
" Isn't it wonderful" he said as he pointed at a squirrel that was running up a tree. " To see my glory up close".
" What do you mean to see your glory?" Nicholas asked with a puzzled look.
" Nicholas, my glory is reflected everywhere" he said as he pointed all around him. " From the anthill we just passed to all the stars in the sky".
