Primitive religion is not believed, it is danced!

Arthur Darby Nock

Earth's crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God;
And only he who sees takes off his shoes;
The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries.

Elizabeth Browning

Silence please!

There was no need for words, for there are times when words can only hint
at what the heart would wish to say.
                             Alexander McCall Smith

Words are cheap
And they are simply
Not the medium of the heart

I love you
God loves you

You are valued

Such truths can only be
by acts of love
both large and small

the cat quietly washes the ear of her friend the dog

the man, without fanfare,
does the little things
cooks a meal
cleans up
is simply

the church simply embraces
and feeds
and clothes

sometimes words

merely get in the way
