A Cosmic Conversation

"In my mind’s ear I can hear God saying to God, 

Can I do it?
Do I love them that much? 
Can I leave my galaxies, 
my solar systems,
 can I leave the hydrogen clouds 
and the birthing stars 
and the journeyings of comets, 
can I leave all that I have made, 
give it all up, 
                                                     and become a tiny
unknowing seed 
                                                           in the belly of a young girl?
 Do I love them that much? 
Do I have to do that in order 
to show them what it is to be human?


The answer on our part is a grateful Alleluia! 

God so loved the world that he sent his only begotten son…" 

-Penguins and Golden Calves, Madeleine L’Engle
