Tonight I’m reading, Brian Zahnd’s book, Beauty Will Save The World.
I can’t shake this quote loose:
“We do not want merely to see beauty, though God knows, even that is bounty enough. We want something else which can hardly be put into words -to be united with the beauty we see, to pass into it, to receive it into ourselves, to bathe in it, to become part of it.” -C.S Lewis
Lent for me is becoming the polishing off of dusty faith . The scrubbing away of sticky desires and stained doubts.
The beauty of the cross is what saved me. A love so captivating-captured my restless soul. I want to become more of that beauty.
I want to be united, steeped in that kind of beautiful love. God’s beauty draws me in and now more that ever I want it to totally consume me.
