A Mystery so Deep and Beautiful

A Mystery so Deep and Beautiful

May this eternal truth be always on our hearts:
that the God who breathed this world into being,
placed stars into the heavens,
and designed a butterfly’s wing
is the God who entrusted his son
to the care of ordinary people,
became vulnerable that we might know
how strong is the wonder of love —
a mystery so deep it is impossible to grasp;
a mystery so beautiful it is impossible to ignore.
