“God Walks Among the Pots and Pans” (St. Theresa of Avila)
$7.98 – $9.98
This print, quoting St. Theresa of Avila, is fitting in a kitchen or laundry room where much of the daily work is done, reminds us that the sacred and beautiful are found in this day-to-day and repetitive work of our lives. It is indeed blessed.
Kathleen Norris says it best in her book, The Quotidian Mysteries: “The Bible is full of evidence that God’s attention is indeed fixed on the little things. But this is not because God is a great cosmic cop, eager to catch us in minor transgressions, but simply because God loves us–loves us so much that the divine presence is revealed even in the meaningless workings of daily life. It is in the ordinary, the here-and-now, that God asks us to recognize that the creation is indeed refreshed like dew-laden grass that is “renewed in the morning” or to put it in more personal and also theological terms, “our inner nature is being renewed everyday”. Seen in this light, what strikes many modern readers as the ludicrous details in Leviticus involving God in the minuitae of daily life might be revisioned as the very love of God.”
I hope this piece encourages and blesses you as you go about your day!
