What a family!

Here's one for you from The Longing for Home, by Frederick Buechner: "In the greatest aria that God sings in the entire Bible, he sets forth in gorgeous poetry all they mystery and grandeur of creation as a way of showing Job that the mystery is ultimately unfathomable, and it is then that Job finally says, 'I had heard of thee by the hearing of the ear, but now my eye sees thee' (42:5). And that was what Job needed above all else—not an explanation of suffering but the revelation that even in the midst of suffering there is a God who is with us and for us and will never let us go."
