We are God and us!

Amazing Grace is what we desire before we find God. We shall still desire it on our deathbeds, when the mind longs for beloved wife and friend. Love, by definition, seeks to be loved. A departed spouse is Love as is God! “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.” [Romans 8:18] While we are this is. If we lose this, we lose all. “Plunged in thy depth of mercy let me die / The death that every soul that lives desires.” [Cowper] Your soul has a curious shape because it is a hollow made to be a particular swelling in the infinite contours of God’s love. To be One in a union of different members is to be One because we are different, we glimpse the meaning of all things. God caused things to be other than Himself (but still in His image) that being distinct, they might learn to love Him and our beloved and achieve union instead of mere sameness.  It is not sufficient that the Word is God, it must also be one with God as God and the Son are One. It is the difference between Patricia and I that makes it possible for us to still be One. Our union with God is, a continual self-abandonment, an opening, an unveiling, a surrender, of ourselves. For in self-giving, we love, we touch a rhythm of all creation and being! God is Love! We are God and us!

About thebows99krug

Hi, I am Eric, a retired librarian. I was born in St. Michael's Hospital, Toronto and raised in the downtown area north of the Art Gallery, south of the University of Toronto. I went to Orde Street Public School, Harbord C.I., University College at the UofT and the UofT's Faculty of Library and Information Science. I meet my wife Patricia at FLIS; our first date was on November 15, 1968. We were engaged February 14, 1969 and married on June 21, 1969. Our family includes son, James; daughter-in-law, Erin; (both writers), grand-daughters, Vivian and Eleanor; and Sonic, a very friendly ginger tabby. My beloved wife died January 7, 2017 and our 19 year old cat Pooka died January 8, 2017. I would like to hear from any other class of '63 alumni of Harbord C.I. and class of '67 alumni of UofT's University College.
