Blackbirds congregated in rows on power lines under a fog worthy of The Hundred Acre Wood — a fog which melted away to reveal a morning in pink and blue like the inside of an oyster shell.

“The kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls, who, on finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all that he had and bought it.”

And, yes, we are called to such willingness, called to chase this kingdom with all our resources, all our abilities.

But also, is not this merchant a picture of our Christ, the kingdom HIS pearl, bought with His most precious all?

And that truth is more beautiful than the pearliest of mornings.
