Love’s Answer to Creation’s Enigma

Sharing a Longfellow quote with you today from my devotional book on this Good Friday morning… 


When He bowed down His Head in the death-hour

Solemnized Love His triumph!  The Sacrifice then was completed.

Lo! then was rent on a sudden the veil of the temple, dividing

Earth and heaven apart, and the dead from their sepulchres rising,

Whispered with pallid lips and low in the ears of each other

Th’ answer but dreamed of before to Creation’s enigma — Atonement!

Depths of Love are Atonement’s depths, for Love is Atonement!

~ Longfellow ~

 Wishing you all a weekend of wonderful worship as you remember and celebrate our Lord’s sacrifice and triumph!
