The Write Idea


For Winter Days

On many an idle day have I grieved over lost time.  But it is never lost, my lord. Thou hast taken every moment of my life in thine own hands.
Hidden in the heart of things, thou art nourishing seeds into sprouts, buds into blossoms, and ripening flowers into fruitfulness.
I was tired and sleeping on my idle bed and imagined all work had ceased. In the morning I woke up and found my garden full with wonders of flowers.
~~Rabindranath Tagore


  1. I needed to read this — on a couple of different levels. Beautiful.

  5. Thanks, all. It’s fun to see my old blogging buddies somewhere other than FB. I don’t know about wordpress versus blogger versus other options. I think if what you have is working for you, why change?
