So many people ask that question about life. The “Why” of it.
Unfortunately, many that ask often do not find the answers that they wish.
But when you are able to touch it and see it – the magnitude of it all can be breathtaking.
The fact that you and I even exist is mindblowing to me.
We exist. We sustain life while hurling through space on this little planet.
And then you add in relationships, and joy, and sadness, and pain, and beauty.
It can all be completely overwhelming.
I am so thankful for the beauty of it all.
It is a wonder that those exposed to such beauty forfeit the great questions in the face of this miraculous evidence. I think again about this small period of grace, and thank God for it, that if only for a season, I could feel the why of life, see it in the metaphor of light, in the endlessness of the cosmos, in the miracle of friendship. And had these mountains the ability to reason, perhaps they would contemplate the beauty of humanity, and praise God for the miracle that each of us is, pondering the majesty of God and the wonder of man in one bewildering context.”
