Big Sunset

Sometimes the sunset is too big for the camera lens.

The truth is beautiful, and when beauty and truth are more than we can grasp, we are left in awe and wonder.

The world God created reflects His order and His infinity.  It is incomprehensibly large, and full of things that are incomprehensibly small.

So no matter how much we learn, a full understanding of God and His logical creation will always be beyond our grasp.  It will always be beyond our ability to fully know.  We will always be left in awe and wonder.

If the logical creation leaves us in wonder, how much more so the Infinite Creator?

Yet, just as a camera can catch part of a sunset, so also we can understand and receive in part.

That is why God comes to us in means.  Means are ways we can understand and receive God.  Jesus Christ is the one true God.  He comes to us in words that we can understand and sacraments we can see, taste, and feel.

May we always appreciate the gifts of God, always grow in learning, and always stand in awe of His infinite wonder (both great and small).

  1. Paul,
    I hope the fires in California have not affected you or your family.

    In the pictures, the trees had been hit by a tornado. The clouds were being hit by nothing more than the light from the sun.

    Blessings.
    Rick

  2. Thanks Rick. Fires a couple of months ago got within 1 1/2 miles. We need rain…lots of rain. Pray for rain, please.
