To fall in love with God is the greatest of all romances;
to seek Him, the greatest adventure;
to find Him, the greatest human achievement.

Saint Augustine

To bathe in it, to become part of it

I came across this quote today. I sure do need to someday read everything he's written. My book list is only ever getting longer.... xD
How true this is, too...I know how this feels with every inch of me...

What more, you may ask, do we want? … We do not want merely to see beauty, though, God knows, even that is bounty enough. We want something else which can hardly be put into words—to be united with the beauty we see, to pass into it, to receive it into ourselves, to bathe in it, to become part of it.

—C. S. Lewis, "The Weight of Glory"
