Thursday in the Fourth Week of Lent

What We See

Earth’s crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God:
But only he who sees, takes off his shoes,
The rest sit around it, and pluck blackberries,
And daub their natural faces unaware
More and more, from the first similitude.

from “Aurora Leigh,” Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Behold! We can only see what we are open to seeing. There’s more of God around us than we can take in, but we can also miss it all.
