Events as sacraments

Another nugget from Elisabeth Elliot:

He calls us to take up our crosses.  That is a different thing from capitulation or resignation.  It is a glad and voluntary YES to the conditions we meet on our journey with Him, because these are the conditions He wants us to share with Him.  Events are the sacraments of the Will of God- that is, they are the visible signs of an invisible Reality.  These provide the very place where we may learn to love and trust.  Heaven waits for our response.
