a gem of a thought

“Nothing in your life is so insignificant, so small, that God cannot be found at its center.  We think of God in the dramatic things, the glorious sunsets, the majestic mountains, the tempestuous seas; but he is in the little things too, in the smile of a passer-by or the gnarled hands of an old man, in a daisy, a tiny insect, falling leaves.”

Mother Frances Dominica, Pioneer in the Hospice Movement

Crowded with God

moon-2

(moon over our neighborhood last week)

“We may ignore, but we can nowhere evade, the presence of God.  The world is crowded

with him.  He walks everywhere incognito.  And the incognito is not always hard to

penetrate.  The real labour is to remember, to attend.  In fact, to come awake.  Still more,

to remain awake.”

C.S. Lewis in Letters to Malcolm, Chiefly on Prayer
