Shadows and silhouettes intrigue and fascinate.
The essence of an object or person is but hinted at when viewed through darkened surroundings.
But the mystery is such that one squints and moves about to clarify and identify what illusive reality exists in such hidden forms.
With just a whisper of Light, success is found. The veiled is disrobed and made plain to see.
Oh, that we would spend that much time in the waking hours, seeking to solve the mysteries that waltz beside us in peripheral life.
. . . that their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love, to reach all the riches of full assurance of understanding and the knowledge of God's mystery, which is Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
(Colossians 2, part of verses 1-3; ESV)
