I shall joyfully allow

I shall open my eyes and ears. Once every day I shall simply stare at a tree, a flower, a cloud, or a person. I shall not then be concerned at all to ask what they are but simply be glad that they are. I shall joyfully allow them the mystery of what C.S. Lewis calls their “divine, magical, terrifying and ecstatic” existence.

~Clyde Kilby in “Amazed in the Ordinary”

Another beautiful passage from my friend Emily’s lambent blog Barnstorming, which is one of my absolute must-reads, every single day.
