Fathomless

“Listen to your life. See it for the fathomless mystery it is. In the boredom and pain of it, no less than in the excitement and gladness: touch, taste, smell your way to the holy and hidden heart of it, because in the last analysis all moments are key, and life itself is grace.” -Frederick Buechner

This concept best comes alive for me in the form of photography (although no pictures in this post are mine), for the mere sense that it captures beautiful moments and transforms even my most ordinary day into something perfectly magical. Art has always had it’s way like that.

Why? Ken Gire explained that best: “Anytime art touches your life with tears, whether a story, song, film or painting, it is wise to pay attention to those tears, because your tears could help you find your heart. And if your heart, you found what is dear to God. If of God, you found the answer to how you should live your life.

So when I think of my life in frozen pixels of wonder, through tears, through tasting and touching…

I think I’ve started to uncover something HOLY. Hidden. And graceful. Life itself – in the way it was meant to be at the core of our senses, like Jesus claimed we could have it. Abundant and free. (John 10)

How do you see the fathomless mystery of the holy in your life?
