But we pine. The sense that in this universe we are treated as strangers, the longing to be acknowledged, the meet with some response, the bridge some chasm that yawns between us and reality, is part of our inconsolable secret. And surely, from this point of view, the promise of glory, in the sense described, becomes highly relevant to our deep desire.  For glory means good report with God, acceptance by God, response, acknowledgement, and welcome in the heart of things.  The door on which we have been knocking all our lives will open at last. –CS Lewis

today i’m considering that “inconsolable secret”.  and rolling over the question of what God thinks of me. (infinitely more important than what i think of Him).
