It is easy to become focused only on what is necessary.  Consider whimsy and frivolity as necessary things. Life is pure drudgery if we are forbidden to be silly. Some people devote themselves to a life of simplistic solitude. Some religions believe that adornments are offensive. I truly believe that God is a truly whimsical being. I watched the movie Amazing Grace this weekend. There is a very minor point in the movie that the simplest of God’s creations, like spider webs, are worthy of deep contemplation. There is profound intricacy it things that appear simple. We can delve deeply into the simple, elevating it to the sublime. Humans have the almost innate tendency to embellish. It is one of our divine remnants. God left his love of the frivolous in all of us.
