Yellow

Earlier this week I read this post at Evolution of Belief by MKHBlink. It's a wonderful post about where we find God, how we experience God and how other's perceive us and assume things about us.

It made me think of this poem.

Yellow
by Mary Oliver

There is the heaven we enter
through institutional grace
and there are the yellow finches bathing and singing
in the lowly puddle.

Electricity. Comes in third to a flushing toilet and a hot shower. How long has this blog been operating? I will miss your other blog title. But I'm sure I'll get over it : )
