Time and space come together…

“Time and space come together as we look at the stars, as we worship silently together in this most massive cathedral of the summer sky. Something in both of us aches and hungers and is not filled even in the presence of this awesome beauty. This is more than a hunger for beauty. It is at the same time a hunger for love, for acceptance – which, if you think about it long enough, you’ll realize is a hunger for God. For He is beautiful.”

From my morning readings in “Scribbling in the Sand“, by Michael Card.

We are made in such a way that we recognize and celebrate beauty.  That beauty can make us yearn for God.  It can make us seek to emulate creation in our own small ways.  It can let us reach out to each other in love and touch each other’s lives and hearts.  This is creative service, something I believe we are all called to.
