Fathomless Mystery

There is no event so commonplace
but that God is present within it,
always hiddenly,
always leaving you room to recognize Him
or not…

Listen to your life.

See it for the
fathomless mystery that it is.

In the boredom and pain of it no less
than in the excitement and gladness:
touch, taste, smell your way to the
holy and hidden art of it
because in the last analysis
all moments are key moments…..

and Life itself is Grace.
~Frederick Buechner from Now and Then- Listening to Your Life

One thought on “Fathomless Mystery

  1. Buechner always manages to speak to the common, uncomplicated person. His thoughts are like mirrors. Thank you, Emily, for providing today’s insight into my inner self where turmoil and spiritual pain, along with the absolute hope and joy of the sacred Presence within, co-exist side by side.
