Alive in the Ordinary

Delight in the small things can fill the big spaces.


If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, 
If a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, 
If the simple things of nature have a message that you understand . . .


 . . . .  For your soul is alive.
