There are days when I wonder what took me so long.
There are days when I’m convinced that eternity won’t be long enough.
To get to know Him.
To worship Him.
To love Him.
To sit next to Him in beautiful silence that says far more than words ever could.
“I came to You late,
O Beauty so ancient and new
I came to love You late
You were within me and I was outside
Where I rushed about wildly searching for You
Like some monster loose in Your beautiful world
You were with me,
But I was not with You.
You called me
You shouted to me
You broke past my deafness
You bathed me in Your light
You wrapped me in Your splendor
You sent my blindness reeling
You gave out such a delightful fragrance
And I drew it in…
…and came breathing hard after You
I tasted, and it made me hunger and thirst;
You touched me
And I burned to know Your peace.”
– St. Augustine
