“G. K. Chesterton reminds us in Orthodoxy, God may indeed be “strong enough to exult in monotony. It is possible that God says every morning, ‘Do it again’ to the sun; and every evening, ‘Do it again’ to the moon. This may be our most holy calling: to persist with our daily obligations and routines, and even to enjoy the ordinariness of life. As an Episcopal bishop, Frank Wade, has said: “I am certain that God must love the ordinary, because he made so much of it.” -Kathleen Norris
“Life is this simple. We are living in a world that is absolutely transparent and God is shining through all the time. This is not just a fable or a nice story. It is true.
If we abandon ourselves to God and forget ourselves, we see it sometimes, and we see it maybe frequently.
God shows himself everywhere, in everything — in people and in things and in nature and in events.
It becomes very obvious that God is everywhere and in everything and we cannot be without him; it’s impossible.” -Thomas Merton
