We look for visions from heaven, for earthquakes and thunders of God's power, and we never dream that all the time God is in the commonplace things and people around us. If we will do the duty that lies nearest, we shall see Him. One of the most amazing revelations of God comes when we learn that it is in the commonplace things that the Deity of Jesus Christ is realized.
Oswald Chambers

How simple was life in the days of "With Six You Get Eggroll".  Doris Day, Bryan Keith, champagne, popcorn, the fireplace...hugging and kissing in the rain.  Oh, how I long for the simple life, the easy times when all the hard stuff is behind us.  How I long for the "us".  For peaceful times in front of the fireplace talking about the life that has gone by, the life that is to come, our blessings and the beauty in the world.  Lord, if you see fit, place those things before me.  Longing is just not where I want to be.
