Speaking of: Life as story

July 16, 2010 — Leave a comment

Still, I wonder if we shall ever be put into songs or tales. We’re in one, of course; but I mean: put into words, you know, told by the fireside, or read out loud of a great big book with red and black letters, years and years afterwards. And people will say: ‘Let’s hear about Frodo and the Ring’ and they’ll say ‘Oh yes, that’s one of my favorite stories.

J.R.R. Tolkien, Lord of the Rings

***

Miracles are a retelling in small letters of the very same story which is written across the whole world in letters too large for some of us to see.

C.S.Lewis

***

As we gaze on Your kingly brightness
So our faces display Your likeness.
Ever changing from glory to glory
Mirrored here may our lives tell Your story.
Shine on me,
Shine on me.

Graham Kendrick, Shine Jesus Shine

This Week’s Special
Give thanks to the LORD, call on His name;
make known among the nations what He has done.
Sing to him, sing praise to Him;
tell of all His wonderful acts.
Glory in His holy name;
let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice.
Look to the LORD and His strength;
seek His face always.
Ps 105:1-4
