What a simple idea, your thoughts like pebbles being washed by a brook.  As an inveterate pebble pusher, this humble notion attached to something as grand as the thought of God, is heartening.

‘It seems as if I could sit silent all day long with the thought of God overflowing my soul – as the pebbles lie bathed in the Willow Brook.’
