One word. Five minutes to write about it. This is an extra 10 Day Writing Prompt Challenge from Five Minute Friday. From March 2nd to March 11th, those of us who took part wrote for five minutes each day on this set of prompts. 

Although I wrote each day, I didn't publish each day. This is what I wrote on Sunday, Day Seven, prompted by the word "mystery".

The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of true art and true science. ~Albert Einstein, The World As I See It

there i find you in the mystery

I love mystery novels - the suspense and the challenge of trying to follow the clues and unravel the tangled clues along with the fictional detectives. Fictional being the key word!

In the real world those kinds of mysteries - solving crimes - aren't quite as appealing to me. In the real world I'm more fascinated by the mysteries of creation and of the Creator. 

Science is full of mystery to me because even when I can sort of understand the chemical equation or the physical law that's at work, it's beyond my comprehension how people have been able to discover  something so complex. How do we begin to quantify things as tiny as atoms or as enormous as the stars and galaxies? How is it that we can explain, even in part, how these things work? And then when I try to wrap my head around the fact that God created it all in such detail and order, by speaking it into existence . . . It's too amazing. Incredible.

But an even more profound mystery is that the God who created atoms and cells, the earth and all the galaxies beyond it, created mankind so that he could have relationship with us. And the relationship is so important to him that he sent his son Jesus to make a way to restore that relationship after we broke it.  That's a beautiful and profound mystery.


My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
~Colossians 2:2-3

Thanks to Five Minute Friday for the prompts and the encouragement, as well as a link-up where we can share.
