Quotation of the Week (a few days late!)

Earth’s crammed with heaven, And every common bush afire with God; But only he who sees, takes off his shoes – The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries.

Elizabeth Barrett Browning  (via Dick Staub)


  1. I grew up with this quote. My pastor repeated it I don’t know how many times. For those who see the fire, it is an excruciating experience while others wander and pick and rest. The crowd creates a centrifugal force to their center. But I can’t unsee the bush burning.
