Child of the pure unclouded brow
And dreaming eyes of wonder!
Though time be fleet, and I and thou
Are half a life asunder,
Thy loving smile will surely hail
The love-gift of a fairy-tale.
Prologue to Through the Looking Glass
You are altogether beautiful, my darling;
beautiful in every way.
Song of Songs 4:7
…true …noble …right …pure …lovely …admirable …excellent …praiseworthy
fix your thoughts on these.
There is no fear in love…
1 John 4:18
little world of mine
back to you i run
imperfect perfect world of mine
where matters much too large unwind and
things that truly matter come to mind
Did I offer peace today? Did I bring a smile to someone’s face? Did I say words of healing? Did I let go of my anger and resentment? Did I forgive? Did I love? These are the real questions. I must trust that the little bit of love that I sow now will bear many fruits, here in this world and the life to come.
Dear little one, all storms pass.
The Lord is king! He is robed in majesty.
Indeed, the Lord is robed in majesty and armed with strength.
The world stands firm
and cannot be shaken.
