Turning to God




“Without unambiguous times in the week and day when we are free to just appreciate the giftedness of life, to recognize ourselves as intrinsically loved creations of God’s joy, we will likely smother our capacity to simply appreciate life in God as an art and narrow ourselves to life in God as a task. Even during our tasks, wherever possible, we need to leave spaces to turn to God and simply appreciate the life in and around us. Our work and service at its best will grow out of this appreciation.”
-Tilden Edwards, Living in the Presence
