Een sacrament aan de kant van de weg

 

“Verlies nooit een kans om iets moois te zien;
want schoonheid is Gods handschrift
~ een sacrament langs de weg.
Verwelkom het in elk eerlijk gezicht,
in elke schone lucht,
in elke schone bloem,
en dank God ervoor als een beker van zegen. “

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

A Wayside Sacrament

Purplerays

“Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful; for beauty is God’s handwriting ~ a wayside sacrament. Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every fair flower, and thank God for it as a cup of blessing.”

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Moment by Moment

Too many people have their eyes closed for the small things of nature and go places without really “seeing” those places and their beauty.
