As I look back over so many years, it seems I’ve lived a hundred lives, of many types and forms, swirling colours and moments of intensity. Yet tasting life’s abundance, I yet found it lacking.
It is those moments that remain, times of intense intimacy with God, and with others.
As a child I was often alone, my lack His opportunity. Now life has been full, I’ve enjoyed friends, children and yes, love. Times when I was so deeply in love all else was extinguished, and times of utter loneliness.
Through it all, most special, have been those times when God’s presence became a tangible thing and whatever caused this close connection whether pain or joy, agony or euphoria became dim and unimportant. Such moments remain vivid stars in my galaxy of life.
