Pockets of delight

And when God had finished all of God’s work, mankind took charge. The wonders of creation were replaced by the assembly-line precision of resentful accuracy. Mindless hammer blows beat swords into plowshares, then back into swords, depending upon which was more fashionable at the time. And work never ceased, from one day to the next.

But there are pockets of delight to be found, moments and places of fellowship where one unique and beautiful human speaks to another, where worth is measured by kindness and where the sparkle in a loved one’s eyes is worth more than diamonds.
