The Face of Love


In the aftermath of the Oslo tragedy, my good friend, an Arab Muslim woman from Jerusalem, sent me a concerned e-mail. Her kind and encouraging words were a ray of light, one among many during these days. It is in times like these that love overflows. She wrote me, among other things, that she believes in Good God – meaning that something good will come even from this horrible thing, that every horrible thing opens opportunities for good.

I replied her today that I believe in good God, too. It is in times like these we see and feel so much love, and get to share love, too. At night a candle’s brighter than the sun. Remember how we prayed together in Jerusalem, holdings hands, when the war nearly began raging around us? I thought you would see His face in those flowers, as I do today :-)
