Here, There and Yonder

When I was younger my grandma used to use that phrase a lot:  “they are here, there and yonder.”  I may ask where my cousins were and she would answer, “here, there and yonder”.  We may chase the chickens around the barn lot and she way scold us telling us to stop because we were scattering them “here, there and yonder.”

It seems to be a southern phrase such as “ya’ll”.  But it’s interesting that even though it may be deemed a southern phrase, we somehow all understand what it means.  “Here, there and yonder” means something is HERE; something is over THERE; and something is spread all over the place [YONDER] – away from here.

That’s how I see God’s protection of us.  He is with us wherever we go.  We cannot go anywhere without Him.  He knows all.  He sees all.  He loves us all.  He is omnipresent.  What does that even mean?  Omnipresent.  According to dictionary.com,  omnipresent is defined as “present everywhere at the same time.”

Well in this ole gal’s understanding, that means God is with all of us all the time no matter where we are  – here, there and yonder!
