Divine Fragrance

Lord, your ways are vastly, immensely, powerfully loving beyond anything comprehensible to me,

Gazing into a single rose, I experience the ineffable in a divine embrace that is the only reality.

Outside of this moment, I soak in teachings dotted with the word “ineffable” and my mind grasps it conceptually. I am taught to recognize it as you, Lord, and to accept it will be fleeting and beyond my control to receive or call into being.

In knowing this, I give myself over to you as much as I am capable of in this moment, understanding you are the grantor on your terms and in your time.

Today, a single rose holds all the fragrance that has been, is now, and will forever be.

I bury my nose in its eternity.

It opens out and draws in.

Breath of Love.
