The Cool Of Dawn

The death of the world and birth of a new one passed without anyone noticing. Since that day God is showing his children that they are, as a matter of fact, walking with Him in a new creation.

“On the third day the friends of Christ coming at daybreak to the place found the grave empty and the stone rolled away. In varying ways they realised the new wonder; but even they hardly realised that the world had died in the night. What they were looking at was the first day of a new creation, with a new heaven and a new earth; and in a semblance of the gardener God walked again in the garden, in the cool not of the evening but the dawn.”

-G.K. Chesterton, The Everlasting Man

    I have never thought of it like that, and now it is as if I always should have. As if I have always had a major gap in my thinking. Beautifully mind-blowing.
