Inside Each of Us, a Piece of God


“Maybe the desire to make something beautiful

is the piece of God that is inside each of us.”

Mary Oliver


Make something that you feel is beautiful this week. You could take a photograph of something that strikes you as beautiful – a plant or an arrangement of rocks beside a driveway or a leaf after the rain. Or you could make a beautiful arrangement of food, like cheese and croutons sprinkled on a bowl of soup. Or trace a wavy design in the steam on your bathroom mirror after a shower. Or toss throw pillows in an interesting arrangement on a bed or couch. Or if you’re inclined, paint or sketch or arrange flowers or rearrange a room. No one else has to think it’s beautiful but you. Rest in the piece of God inside you. And the peace of God inside you.


Nurture peace, cultivate kindness, and carry the calm.
