Words, Words, Words from Madeleine L'Engle
"When I look at the galaxies on a clear night--when I look at the brilliance of creation, and think that this is what God is like, then instead of feeling intimidated and diminished by it, I am enlarged.... I rejoice that I am a part of it." Madeleine L'Engle
My friend Debra brought this quotation to my attention several years ago. Before bed Wednesday night, George and I sat in the chairs on our deck watching for Perseid meteors. We were too early, really, since the main show was after midnight, but the few we saw in our light-polluted neighborhood were spectacular. Brilliance of creation, indeed.
