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.

The Weather Today...

Okay, okay. So, I was a little hasty... Joel P. doesn't have to miss winter for so long, I guess!
It is beautiful, I must say! I guess I'll go get all the winter clothes again.


  1. it is pretty, but i hope spring comes soon and melts it away for you!

  2. You just wouldn't believe it, but it's all gone again! I guess if you live in Minnesota you just have to like the unpredictable and unexpected! We spent all afternoon at the park today. It was nice and sunny, though a bit breezy. Fifty degrees felt pretty nice to all of us. The kids were running around in t-shirts and begging to take their shoes off! We felt very thankful, and supper time prayers lasted a bit longer than usual!
