Each day, awakening,
are we asked to paint the sky blue? Need we coax the sun to rise or flowers to bloom? Need
we teach birds to sing, or children to laugh, or lovers to kiss? No, though we
think the world imperfect, it surrounds us each day with its perfections. We
are asked only to appreciate them, and to show appreciation by living in
peaceful harmony amidst them. The Creator does not ask that we create a perfect
world; He asks that we celebrate it.
