To Help You Think



by James B. Nicola


To help you think of God, think of tomorrow. Or vice versa. Tomorrow can't be seen or held, tomorrow does not weigh, and yet you know tomorrow's always coming. But tomorrow, once it does arrive, is gone. Tomorrow 's never here, is never now, and yet tomorrow is responsible for (very nearly) Everything. And any depiction can be only science fiction.


To help you think of God, think next of love, or vice versa, which is the way tomorrow comes to us as with a kiss, or the eternal hope thereof—that is tomorrow. That is God. That's love. Like hope. Like thought.
