The computer allows us to contemplate beauty in nature without moving from our chair! I am finding that I can sink into prayer easier these days with a picture than with a thought. I guess the picture conveys the thought of God - I remember asking a very holy and wise Religious when I was still a novice why, if God is all and everything else is nothing, did I need anything else? That phrase seems to be all I needed then and now, but the trouble is that life complicates what seems so simple. I guess it is human nature to forget the essentials and get mixed up in the day by day concerns and yet it is simple to go back and realize that God is all and everything else is nothing!
