Something to think and pray about this week

Irrepressible Mystery

Life itself is a mystery. And a glorious one at that! How did we get here? What is life all about? Wonderful mysteries! Perhaps in the face of these mysteries, we could simply – just for a wee while – rest in the mystery. Just let it be. Let life be what it is. Experience it for the highs and lows it brings. Don’t try to explain it. Don’t try to control it. Just ‘be’ in it. Acknowledge that we don’t know it all and that we can’t know it all. Resting here, I’ve a feeling we’ll meet with God.
