What it cost




"It costs God nothing,

so far as we know,
to create nice things;
but to convert rebellious wills
cost Him
crucifixion."

~C. S. Lewis in Surprised by Joy

That is a "stop-you-in-your-tracks" quote. Thank you.

Hi Carol,
Yes, it is. Thanks for sharing "Awake thou wintry earth." I particularly like the last line--"...to say that death is dead." So simple that it is easy to parrot and move on. But oh, how profound. And true. I found that poem put to Bach's wonderful music. Anything Bach wins me.
Thanks, Carol.
