Sunday Thoughts... Dance With the Other:
As a mother and the baby she holds in her arms, as a father and child, as two in courtship or in marriage, so we are with Him.
One chases, the other runs away. One runs away, the other chases.
One initiates, the other responds. The other initiates, the one responds.
It is a dance, a game, a duet that plays as surely as the pulse of life.
Until one falls away and becomes estranged. Then the other looks and says, "This is not an other. We are one and the same."
And so, they return to each other's arms once again.
It is a great mystery, but in estrangement, there is found the deepest bond.
