Every time you feel in God's creatures something pleasing and attractive, do not let your attention be arrested by them alone, but, passing them by, transfer your thought to God and say: "O my God, if Thy creations are so full of beauty, delight and joy, how infinitely more full of beauty, delight and joy art Thou Thyself, Creator of all!
- Nicodemus of the Holy Mountain

You can’t get to joy by making everything perfect. You can only get there by seeing in every imperfection all that’s joy.

Okay, so yeah, we went on a vacation, whatever that really means. It took us about 2 weeks to recover. There were some really high points to our time with Dan's family. We all had some really nice talks. We played some, w0rked some and rested some.
For me one of the high points was a drive through the Amish neighborhood. Saw an old fashioned barn raising. Desperately wanted to take a picture of the 30 or so Amish men up in the rafters working away. Didn't want to offend, so that will be one picture that will stay in my mind, and only there, for a LONG time.
I never have enough time to do this blog justice, but wanted to at least attempt to add something new. Really hope to add more soon.
