All our senses are given to us to enjoy,
And to praise God.
The smell of the sea,
The blossom borne on the wind,
of the soft flesh of a little baby;
the taste of a ripe plum
or bread fresh from the oven,
the feel of a warm cat's fur,
or the body of a lover -
these are all forms of thanksgiving prayer.
-Bella Brown (in 'Plain Living - A Quaker Path to Simplicity' by Cathering Whitmire)
