    L'Engle on Creation

    Photo by Dave Smith

    It is an extraordinary and beautiful thing that God, in creation, uses precisely the same tools and rules as the artist; he works with the beauty of matter; the reality of things; the discoveries of the senses, all five of them; so that we, in turn, may hear the grass growing; see a face springing to life in love and laughter; feel another human hand or the velvet of a puppy's ear; taste food prepared and offered in love; smell--oh, so many things: food, sewers, each other, flowers, books, new-mown grass, dirt...

    Here, in the offerings of creation, the oblations of story and song, are our glimpses of truth.
    -Madeleine L'Engle, quoted in Glimpses of Grace: Daily Thoughts and Reflections
