Marvelous Monday

I have determined to have a different 'normal' Monday today. We all know about Mondays. Today is NOT going to be a "mundane Monday" but a marvelous Monday. Okay everyone, it's time to whip out the smiles:)

It was only a scrubby bush that Moses saw in the desert, and yet it gleamed with splendour, as if burning. No wonder the old shepherd turned aside to look at the strange sight. He wanted to solve the mystery; but a voice halted him. God was in the bush. Mrs. Browning, referring to this singular incident, says:–

“Earth’s crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God;
But only he who sees takes off his shoes:
The rest sit round and pluck blackberries.”

The poet’s thought is that the glory of God is in everything – in every tree, in every flower, in every lowly bush, and that almost nobody sees the glory. Most people see only the burning bush or the plant. Only now and then one sees the flame, the splendour of God, and takes off his shoes. Glory of the Common Life
