An Embarrassment of Riches
We live in the ‘time between the times,’ the Now and the Not Yet,’ the ‘here and the still arriving;’ all these descriptions of our day swirling with mystery and packed with anticipation. We are possessed of a perennial sensing of an invitation to a future reality, an as-yet unfinished reality, a reality so amazing that we need protection from the fullness of its glory, a reality determined before Creation and Time began. We both joyfully hope and hope with groaning for its manifestation. And in the meantime, we are invited to celebrate the abundance of all that has been given us in Jesus: his life, his friendship, his Spirit, his Word. When we accept his invitation, our souls fill to overflowing with thanksgiving.
