Do It Again

“Because children have abounding vitality, because they are in spirit fierce and free, therefore they want things repeated and unchanged. They always say, “Do it again”; and the grown-up person does it again until he is nearly dead. For grown-up people are not strong enough to exult in monotony. But perhaps God is strong enough to exult in monotony. It is possible that God says every morning, “Do it again” to the sun; and every evening, “Do it again” to the moon. It may not be automatic necessity that makes all daisies alike; it may be that God makes every daisy separately, but has never got tired of making them. It may be that He has the eternal appetite of infancy; for we have sinned and grown old, and our Father is younger than we.”
― G. K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy

  1. Happy easter

  2. Beautiful 🌸

  3. Terrifically thought provoking. Makes me think about when something is really well designed – like creation – and continues to deliver that enjoyment again and again – what a treat, what a way to bless people.

  4. What are your beliefs? I am curious if you would like to share. This is a very profound quote you posted for the God of the Bible (Jesus Christ).

  5. Love it!
