“…[G]rown-up people are not strong enough to exult in monotony. But perhaps God is strong enough to exult in monotony. It is possible that God says every morning, “Do it again” to the sun; and every evening, “Do it again” to the moon. It may not be automatic necessity that makes all daisies alike; it may be that God makes every daisy separately, but has never got tired of making them. It may be that He has the eternal appetite of infancy; for we have sinned and grown old, and our Father is younger than we.”
- GK Chesterton, as quoted in "Remembering What We Mean," by Doug McKelvey

The day was full. Prayer and worship and lunch and party and party and party. But our hearts are full too. I am grateful for friends who are tremendous examples of checed, in the everyday ordinary walking through life, in easy-but-yet-so-generous hospitality, in mundane faithfulness, with extraordinary "do it again" vitality, even in the hard things. Our time together was much too brief and passed in a blink of the eye. Ah, but for the expectation of eternity and the end of good-byes!
