In reflecting on the recent Gospel reading of the story of the loaves and fishes, I found myself thinking about God’s abundant grace. More than what was needed to do the job. Extravagant in its generosity. Plenty left over. Overflowing love.
We are showered with it every day. All we need to do is accept it and receive it.
I thought of it again when visiting a tulip farm: abundant beauty. More than was expected, almost excessive.
Extravagant in its beauty, both up close and en masse.
And what is beauty but another glimpse of the Face of God, His loving generosity and care, and His overflowing love.
