When Jesus tells us about his Father, we distrust him. When he shows us his Home, we turn away. But when he confides to us that he is “acquainted with Grief,” we listen, for that also is an Acquaintance of our own.

Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) American poet

In Kathleen Norris, "The Difference: October 1," The Cloister Walk (1996)
