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.

My Son's Journal Entry

I'm not trying to brag, but I just have to share my son's journal entry with you all! He journals every day for school, and wrote this very sweet poem! I'm not so sure that it's true of me, but I sure am delighted with his sitting down and writing it!

Mom's are sweet and very neat and love you all life long
And when the moon is up and the sun is down they sing you a lovely song.
They'll make your favorite food
And put you in your favorite mood.
I'd love mine back if I were you
Because kids take for granted the miraculous things that they can do.
