To Uncover Fragments
A crystal-chiseled rock rim crowns many mountain
peaks of the Rockies. Some say its beauty was born
of a catastrophic upheaval so great that it turned the
world inside out and upside down with salt and sea
and lava and wind running through it for billions of years.
Maybe. It’s a mystery concealed by God; and we humans,
tiny as we are, uncover fragments of it’s truth—atom
by atom. We proclaim our discoveries broadly and declare
ourselves, most likely, the only intelligent life in the universe!
It was an expert Sculptor who spoke the crystal carvings of
the mountain peaks into existence, who bounced the universe
like a ball and breathed life into it. I look at the intricate crystal
cuts on the face of the mountain top and know that He is very
capable of directing the lines of my life, the colors, the goings,
the depths, the height. I breathe the mountain air and relax
in His goodness. The unknown remains unknown. It’s foggy
and often scary, but I am learning to trust. All of this beauty
thrills me; but Jesus, who has always been, thrills me most.
