Spirituality


"Spirituality is best manifested on the ground, not in the air.  Rapturous day-dreams, flights of heavenly fancy, longings to see the Invisible, are less expensive and less expressive than the plain doing of duty.  To have bread excite thankfulness and a drink of water send the heart to God is better than sighs for the unattainable.  To plow a straight furrow on Monday or dust a room well on Tuesday or kiss a bumped forehead on Wednesday is worth more than the most ecstatic thrill under Sunday eloquence.  Spirituality is seeing God in common things, and showing God in common tasks." -Maltbie Davenport Babcock
