The Simple Life

March 27, 2007

DogwoodReflections on the Beauty of the Simple Life: 

"To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating;
to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter; to be thrilled by the
stars at night; to be
elated over a bird’s nest or a wildflower in spring — these
are some of the rewards of the simple life."

–  John
Burroughs

Chers Amis,

I love this quote. I speaks to my soul as I strive to be simple and to live simply, to see God in all, to live in the present and to rejoice in the ordinary.  Spring is a banquet, an exaltation of the divine. Get outside today , breathe deeply of the promise of hope, and100_1158_2 smile.

— Marjorie

PS – Aren’t the dogwoods de notre moulin gorgeous this year!

"The year’s at the spring

And day’s at the morn;

Morning’s at seven;

The hill-side’s dew-pearled;

The lark’s on the wing;

The snail’s on the thorn:

God’s in his heaven,

All’s right with the world!
"
–   Robert Browning
