Rightly Consider

“For in the true nature of things, if we rightly consider, every green tree is far more glorious than if it were made of gold and silver.”
-Martin Luther


“We may outrun

By violent swiftness

that which we run at,

And lose by over-running.”

I’m thankful to have read her words this morning.  Starting the day with gentle encouragement to watch for beauty is a welcomed gift.
