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.

Mud Season

These are old pictures, but some of my favorites of Sam as a little guy. It sure enough is mud season! Until today, I've had 6 pairs of winter boots, 6 pairs of tennis shoes, 6 pairs of mud boots, about 30 odd hats and the same number of mittens, at least 6 winter coats, at least a dozen jackets and sweaters....all this in my 5 x 5 entry way!!! Today I decided enough was enough. No more winter coats, boots, mittens or hats. Hopefully I won't have to take them out of storage until next November. Ahh...5 clutter free months! Is that too much to ask???
Well, maybe...
