I stood with God on the edge of the world, and my hand was in His hand. I looked down the road of the past, as it stretched away in the dim distance, till it was shrouded in the mists of time. And I knew it had no beginning, and a little chill wind of fear blew about my head.
God asked, "Are you afraid?"
And I said, "Yes, because I cannot understand how there can be no beginning."
So God said, "Let us turn and face the other way."
And I looked into glory, and my heart rejoiced with joy unspeakable. And then my mind went ahead, a billion, billion years, and I knew there would be no end, and again that little chill wind of fear began to blow.
And God asked me again, "Are you afraid?"
And I answered, "A little, because I cannot understand how there can be no end."
So God asked me tenderly, "Are you afraid now, today, with your hand in mine?"
And I looked up at Him and smiled and replied, "O my Father, NO!"
And God said, "Every day in eternity will be today."
