(Today I am sharing an Instagram post for the prompt, #liturgyofthelittlethings. Thank you, @sarah_westfall for the prompt! We are invited to capture small moments that bring happiness.)
My happiness moment for today was a bit of whimsy along the trail at the city park where I walked. I have followed this path many times, and only today – because I was paying attention, seeking joy – I noticed some of the fairy houses that were hidden under leaves and against roots.
There is a humble, gentle, mystical goodness that pervades all of life. We only need to pay close attention; we only need to notice, uncover, or discover this world beyond the norm, beyond our expectations.
May we continue to seek a new vision for our world, a world of imagination, creativity, and joy.
May we find the significance in the small and often hidden things.
May we dream of a better, kinder, gentler world and then work to make it so, beginning with ourselves.
Peace, dear friends.
