In my morning reading today, Desmond Tutu (qtd. in Peacock) offers this:
Our relationship with God is a love affair and ultimately the greatest joy is just to be with the Beloved, to drink in the beauty of the Beloved in a silence that will become more wordless and image-less——-the silence of just being together.
