Not too long ago I was given the opportunity to spend more time than planned in the Denver airport. When blessed with these unexpected pockets of time, I start roaming around: people watching, looking at the art displays, and gazing out the windows at all the busy airport workers.

This particular time in Denver, I snapped the above photo. It wasn’t an accident. I know it looks like it was, but that is just my poor photography skills.

While considering all the different tasks of the airport workers and wondering at their purpose in the big picture, I saw a bunny hop across the concrete. If you didn’t notice, take a closer look at the pic and you will see a bunny behind the wheel.

When I saw the little guy, my immediate thought was, “Oh no, you shouldn’t be out there!” It was several hundred yards from any vegetation, so I was concerned about it finding its way back to its natural habitat and doing so without getting hit by an airplane.

That may all sound silly to you, but I really was concerned about the little guy. However, that is not why I decided to take the photo.

As I started to walk away from the window, I looked up and saw all the many humans waiting to board their planes, and I thought, “Should we be here? How far have we strayed from our natural habitats, from what we were created for?”

That’s when I went back and snapped my award-winning photo of the bunny to remind me to question where I am and how far I may have drifted from the places I was created for.

To be clear, I am not suggesting we return to nomadic traditions or cave dwelling. What I am pondering is how much we push ourselves to work long hours to meet cultural expectations; how much we are piloted by arbitrary social standards; how little we honor our bodies; how little we allow for the beauty of our humanity.

Here is a modern take on Psalm 23:

The Lord is my shepherd, my soul does not need to live in want.

God makes me lie down in green pastures.

But I keep hopping away.

God leads me beside still waters.

But I have engagements every night this week.

God wishes to restore my soul.

But I don’t have time for inner reflection right now.

God leads me on paths of righteousness.

But I decided to try a shortcut that I heard about on Facebook.

Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I should not fear for God is with me.

But life is unpredictable, and I can’t let down my guard
just in case God isn’t really with me
or isn’t really happy with me today or…
You just never know.
I’ve got to have a plan and stay vigilant.
You know, just in case.

God prepares a table before me.

But I grabbed something in the drive thru on the way home.

God anointed my head with oil; my cup overflows.

And I am so worried about the mess it is making.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life.

But I will miss seeing the beauty from being blinded by busyness.

I could dwell in the house of the Lord my whole life long.

But I’m staying late at the office tonight.

My prayer for you, my prayer for myself, is that we find our way back to the natural habitat we were created for.
