"We all long for Eden, & we are constantly glimpsing it:
Our whole nature is still soaked with the sense of exile."
-J. R. R. Tolkien
We are born seeking.
Longing for home,
 and the desire to know Who we originated from.
It is why, when we experience the wonder of nature,
and see the beauty around us,
we are moved to the core of our beings.
His is in all, and He IS all.
Even if we never acknowledge Him,
we will spend our entire lives seeking Him.
Yet he has already found us.
We just have to let Him be Who he is.
And our exile will be ended.

Your followup to Tolkien's quote is quite literally astounding. There is so much depth to your words, and it comes from really truly living and walking in that exile. You do it with such grace and poise. Astounding.
