Quotable Creation Care: G. K. Chesterton Thinks God Delights in Daisies

(cc image courtesy of kthompsonstudios via Flickr).

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. Do we see the world as monotonous or spontanous? In reflecting on good ole’ Moses’ time in Midian as a goatherder, I wonder how many burning bushes he missed because he was not prepared to see it? Everything is new and teeming with life. Even the smallest conversation or experience can be gleaned for something new, informative, transformative and inspiring. How many burning bushes do we enounter but fail to see because we have declared everything “meaningless, meaningless”?
