    Theirs to inhabit is–
    Sweet scent of grass and bloom,
    Playmates’ glad symphony,
    Cool touch of western wind,
    Sunshine’s divine caress.
    How should they know or feel
    They are in darkness?

    If a Redeemer came,
    Laid finger on their eyes–
    One touch and what a world,
    New-born in loveliness!” ~ Israel Zangwill

    Let it. I am here to live my story, to love my story. I will not fail to savor any gift out of a desire for self-preservation. Self-preservation is not a great virtue in this story.” ~ N.D. Wilson
  65. “God’s wrath is not an implacable, blind rage. However emotional it may be, it is an entirely reasonable and willed response to offenses against his holiness. But his love . . . wells up amidst his perfections and is not generated by the loveliness of the loved. Thus there is nothing intrinsically impossible about wrath and love being directed toward the same individual or people at the same time. God in his perfections must be wrathful against his rebel image-bearers, for they have offended him; God in his perfections must be loving toward his rebel image-bearers, for he is that kind of God” ~ D. A. Carson
