Morning Trip (226)

“Nothing can fill the gap when we are away from those we love, and it would be wrong to try and find anything. We must simply hold out and win through. That sounds very hard at first, but at the same time it is a great consolation, since leaving the gap unfilled preserves the bonds between us. It is nonsense to say that God fills the gap; he does not fill it, but keeps it empty so that our communion with one another may be kept alive, even at the cost of pain.”
–Dietrich Bonhoeffer


One thought on “Morning Trip (226)

  1. Wow, what a very interesting and amazing observation. It can hurt so much when we feel those we love have disappeared. To simply hold space for them, even though its hard, even though why don’t know why, even though we may be sad…that is revolutionary. I hope to remember this. Thank you, Elisa.
