Pomeranians and Poodles

24 Oct

The gospel of grace ends any apparent dichotomy between God’s power and His love. For the work of creating is an act of love. The God who flung from His fingertips this universe filled with the galaxies and stars, penguins and puffins, goals and gannets, Pomeranians and poodles, elephants and evergreens, parrots and potato bugs, peaches and pears, and a world full of children made in His own image, is the God who loves with magnificent monotony. And anyone who has experienced the love of the Lord of the Dance will tell you: the synonym for monotonous is not boring.
