Pausing for the Good

“Looking at a freshly mowed lawn, a completed family group sheet, a photocopied dissertation, loaves of perfect homemade bread, a washed and polished car, a poem just written with an elegant turn of phrase, or an exam well-taken and then reflecting that it is good—these are some of the most satisfying experiences of life. . . . We're rejoicing in the harvest and reaffirming that we are indeed made in our Creator's likeness, for he, too, paused after his six days of labor, looked on everything that he had made, and saw that it was good” 

Elaine L. Jack, “Get a Life” [address given at Brigham Young University, Jan. 3, 1993]
