Weekend Inspiration 8/15/2015

Never Stop Looking for HeavenAnd you will

Yesterday I started reading a tattered version of The Screwtape Letters that had sat on my bookshelf for a few years.  C.S. Lewis is worth a large number of posts himself but, in the spirit of my weekend inspiration entries, I’ll keep this short.

For anyone not knowing the book, it is a series of letters between two demons, one more experienced than the other, on the nature of humanity with the more experienced offering advice to the younger. The chapter I read last night included this direction about humans:

Keep them focused on real life.

How many of us are buried in real life?

This weekend, turn your eyes towards the divine and you will find it:

In family and friends. On a sunny trail running through the woods. Sitting by the ocean. Watching the fireflies at night.

When you find it, give thanks and know you are not alone.
