So Much Beauty Around Us

Common beauty is everywhere around us—for those who will take the time to see. If we will only pause from our busyness and look, we many find that even common weeds, briers, and gardens become like stained-glass windows pointing to something more. Then we will truly begin to see that we live in a glorious temple.
"No wonder the hills and groves were God's first temples..."
 "Wherever we go in the mountains, or indeed in any of God's wild fields, we find more than we seek."
—John Muir, My First Summer in the Sierra.
