Simple Delights

Sometimes just the simplest things will bring joy into a moment.  It has been so long since I have seen a butterfly.  Perhaps since I moved to town.  (Not a big town, mind you but huge compared to country living.)  Why is it that we pass by those simple delights when things that seem to be more “important” seem to be keeping our vision focused elsewhere?  Everywhere God gives us simple delights to make our day more pleasant.  It reminds me of an Allen Levi song called “Why Flowers?”

but why the many colors
that fill our eyes with wonder,
why the sounds of music
that stir our hearts to tears,
unless He is a happy God
full of joy and full of beauty
why seasons, why sunsets, why flowers?

~Allen Levi
