Then again, every encounter with anyone I know is always a new beginning, a new connection with who that loved one really is. Relationships go sour the minute we think we've plumbed the depths of another's personality and soul. Being open to new insights is the sure cure for boredom! Like telling Zack he couldn't have Coke with caffeine at bedtime because it would keep him awake and having him deadpan "That's the idea." I now know that kid has the strategic moves to learn chess!
In the same way, every time we turn to God, it's a new beginning. Maybe once we thought of God as Santa Claus, who'd give us exactly what we wanted if we said enough Our Fathers or Novenas, read enough Scripture, or attended Temple or Synagogue or Mosque every week. Then He didn't answer a want of ours and we had to struggle with the relationship until we understood He gives us what we need. Maybe we lost a home or a job or our health and we were angry with Him. Until enough time elapsed that we could see He was writing straight with crooked lines and we'd grown into new stronger people through loss. Maybe we'd always thought of ourselves as unlovable. And when Life itself kept gifting us, we realized we are all God's beloved children, and nothing good that happens to us is an accident.
Maybe there are times, thinking of God, that words refuse to come, and in the silence we feel Him close, and we just - are! with Him, relaxing as we relax in silence with a beloved friend. Or, in this silence, there is darkness, because we recognize how far beyond us He is, how unknowable - and He teaches us that our loving yearning for Him and His loving yearning for us bridges the distance between the Divine and human beings.
So - as children, grandchildren, spouses, and friends continue to amaze and delight you in ever-new twists and turns in your relationships, be alive and aware of the new ways God leads you in your relationship with Him. "The Lord longs to be gracious to you; He rises to show you compassion." (Isaiah 30: 18)
