Don’t overlook or undervalue what will never be found in a gallery

is not only something
we intend to do
with paint and brush,
is not just an expression
we go to a museum
to contemplate,
is not exclusively contrived
beyond the framework
of the ordinary.

is daily.
It is illumined in the work
of common forgiveness,
is found in that conspiracy
of grace we call joy,
is in the daily honing and preservation
of a pure heart,
is in the transformative power
of gratitude.

The great creative work of God
in our lives is diminished
when we look only
outside the soul,
beyond relationships,
past the daily.

Look again.
God is doing a new thing,
a creative thing,
in our hearts and
through our lives.
