yet undisclosed behind the fog, and like a theatrical curtain
slowly pulled back to reveal a perfectly set stage
*** will sublimely unveil it in His own directed time.
And we shall be elated at the view,
for it’s against a backdrop of struggle and darkness
that the best and most moving of stories have always unfolded.
Maybe nothing truly beautiful can ever take form on earth
without the shroud of mystery and brokenness surrounding it—
at least not the kind of beauty that takes our breath away
and leaves us yearning to possess it.
~ Hosea 2:14-15
