the eternal appetite of infancy

perhaps God is strong enough to exult in monotony. It is possible that God says every morning, “Do it again” to the sun; and every evening, “Do it again” to the moon.  It may not be automatic necessity that makes all daisies alike; it may be that God makes every daisy separately, but has never got tired of making them. It may be that He has the eternal appetite of infancy; for we have sinned and grown old, and our Father is younger than we.” -Orthodoxy, Chesterton

  1. this is a great comment by a fab thinker… we truly do lose alot as we are trapped in this linear time thing… to think about God’s eternality is mind blowing… but it is also instructive… for if He is willing to remake the daisy over and again, I take comfort in the fact that He is willing to remake me over and again too, through forgiveness… this is why Jesus came – for the gift of forgiveness
