and after?

"Surrender is not the surrender of the external life, but of the will; when that is done, all is done. There are very few crises in life; the great crisis is the surrender of the will. God never crushes a man's will into surrender, He never beseeches him, He waits until the man yields up his will to Him. That battle never needs to be re-fought.

And after surrender? The whole of the life after surrender is an aspiration for unbroken communion with God."

the very idea

It's simple today. I am absolutely blown away to know and love the One who came up with the idea of gift giving. A joy beyond all telling, it is ♥
