I wonder if the mystery
is hidden in Creation. In plain sight.
Earth is crammed with heaven, and
every common bush afire with God;
but only he who sees, takes his shoes off.
~Elizabeth Barrett Browning
When we understand the outside of things, we think we have them.
Yet the Lord puts his things in subdefined, suggestive shapes,
yielding no satisfactory meaning to the mere intellect,
but unfolding themselves to the conscience and heart.
The true mystery of the world is
the visible, not the invisible.
JoAnne made her comment above in response to my post yesterday, and I thought it too profoundly provocative not to repeat along with the thoughts of others who have made similar remarks.
But everything exposed by the light becomes visible–and everything that is illuminated becomes light. ~Ephesians 5:13 ✝
