WEEK 6 - DAY 6 - LAST DAY OF MY SUMMER STUDY


The finding is never complete
We can never know God exhaustively or completely....But we can sometimes know....for sometimes we become so aware of the fierce beauty of God's light that it seems to be known because it is burning brightly within us.
Caryll Houselander
God is, above all else, a being of immense beauty. It is this beauty that continues to draw us and enfold us in eteranl goodness. This mysterious Beloved is forever wooing us, longing for us to be totally immersed in love of the purest kind. The immense goodness of God is reflected in every variety of people and in all the facets of the universe. Each one mirrors the essence of God's beauty. Every once in awhile, each of us senses, for a moment, this rare blessing of the touch of God. Brief as it is, it is enough to remind us that there is an underlying harmony beneath all the chaos.
Any and all experiences of God are pure gift. There is eternal beauty giving a loving texture to all of life.
As I end this 6 weeks, I'll try to remember that we are in the embrace of a God of love who calls us 'the Beloved', a God who is our choosen 'portion and cup' Could we ever want for anything more?
Let the beauty of God sing in you
Let the comfort of God wrap around you
Let the goodness of God draw you closer
Let the generosity of God open you to the world
Let the love of God bring you peace
Remain enfolded in this Eternal Beauty for as long as you can
Scripture: Colossians 2:1-4
Romans 11: 33-36
God's mystery... in whom are hidden all the jewels of wisdom and knowledge (Col. 2:3)
Oh the depths of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God ! (Rom. 11:33)
I thank God for all His many Gifts !
My family and I have been so blessed in so many ways that it is hard to count all of them.
When my first child was born, I'm sure I felt the blessing of God. My heart was full to bursting with His love. All the chances of my first son being born, were very iffy. I spent 5 long months of bedrest and with God's help we had a beautiful baby boy.
This was the second of many gifts I've received. The first was knowing and marrying my 'other half'. These were the two most outstainding gifts I've received, of course there were many others in between, but these stand out as probably the greatest ! I'm always in awe of the fact that I was chosen by God to receive His blessings. He does truly love His children - all we have to do is believe !
Today I will place my hand over my heart, unite with God's beauty in my soul and in my world, and give thanks !
'On Ya' - ma
