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.

Unexpected, But I Should Have Known!

Just a quick update - remember how I told you I'd put away all the winter clothing? Well, there are at least 3 inches of brand new fluffy stuff outside. It's been snowing all day. There could be 6 inches by morning. A woman's heart plans her way, but the Lord directs her steps. It's in Proverb's some place, I think. Yep. How true it is...
The kids are having fun, though! I'm glad the winter things had only made it as far as the laundry room! I'm back at square one.
