Just Gotta See It!

February 27th, 2017 | Posted by Sr. Mary Valerie Schneider in Uncategorized

As I write my blogs I am sitting in a carpeted basement and facing a long gray wall. But I never lose a chance to see the outdoors or take an extra moment to see something beautiful in book or on internet. When I clean at Lial Renewal Center I always take a look outside between tasks, never tiring of the same scene, which never is the same scene. Ralph Waldo Emerson had this same “gotta see it” spirit. He wrote: “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.” Today challenge yourself to take five-second breaks to look outside or notice the beautiful. Then say, “Thank you, God.”
