Seeing Beauty Everywhere

  1. "Instead of just seeing the yellow primrose, what he could have seen was God's thought of himself coming out into wonderful beauty, and color, and form; the Infinite One manifesting in an infinite variety of forms." Ernest Holmes

    What a lovely suggestion.   Instead of seeing just the yellow primrose, or the Ponderosa pine, or the ravaged body of our loved one -- what if we saw instead the beauty of God's thought of Him/Herself coming out into wonderful beauty and form?  It might give us another way of looking at things. All things.  Yesterday I called hospice.  I know we are in the end stages of this ravaging disease, and hospice is a wonderful service which can come into place in the last months.  I was told they can send a chaplain to pray with the person, send a social worker to visit, send a nurse to give one more bath a week and check for skin breakdown, and provide what is needed to be sure the person is without pain.  I recommend you call them when you believe the time is right.
