questions God can't answer

Lewis talks about nonsense today in A Year With C.S. Lewis.

He says that nonsense is still nonsense even if you put "God can" in front of it. And to a certain extent, he's right. Though God DID manage to do many impossible things...like be born and die even though He's eternal.

But Lewis would say that those are examples of God being an iconoclast again. Breaking our presuppositions. Showing us that His ways are above ours, and so are His thoughts.

But Lewis's gentle laughter in the dark is the take home lesson tonight. I think Julian of Norwich summed up that quiet laughter when she said that, in the end (of time...of the day...if our trial...) He will make all things well, and all things well, and all manner of things well.

We can't conceive of the amazing, perfect, beautiful ending that He has prepared for us. And...He's excited to show it to us. Isn't that cool?

God...thank You for making everything perfect.
