Primitive religion is not believed, it is danced!

Arthur Darby Nock

Earth's crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God;
And only he who sees takes off his shoes;
The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries.

God understands

They say that God is a mystery
a transcendent being
who is way to big
to be embraced or understood

the other

But God is also immanent
so close
so personal
that God dwells within
each one of us
perhaps only in 
the tiniest corner of the heart
but God is there

and being there
God knows us
so much better than we even know ourselves
God may be a mystery to us
we be are no mystery

instead we are understood
each hurt, each fear
each heartache, each moment of loneliness
is God's as well as ours

yes God understands
not just our joy by our pain
not just out moments of love and compassion
but our moments of anger
God understands when we are saints
and when we are sinners
and understanding
loves and forgives
and if we will allow
