I was on the bus sitting next to an older woman - and the discussion turned to her love of sailing. She told me how she was once very passionate about sailing - and that everytime she sailed - her heart "gasped", as if in awe.
She relayed to me that she never has that sense anymore. Save for one thing:
"When I look around me, at creation, my heart gasps. It's so beautiful."
To imagine that God's artistry in the outdoors may only be a hint at what he has in store for the new earth.
