Not every day do we encounter God…

 

 

Not every day do we encounter God;

not every time is opportune for prayer;

not every hour one of grace.

We fail, and fail again, till journey’s end.

We turn back, only to lose our way once more,

and grope in search of long forgotten paths.

But God, holding a candle, looks for all those

who wander, all who search.

  1. Hi Alison,

    I loved this. Simple but true.

    Hope you are doing ok.

    I am just finishing reading ‘Work like a woman’ by Mary Portas, then will start on the red tent. 😊. Thanks for the recommendation x
