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.
