I wrote the poem as a student at University of Pennsylvania.
When You find me breathless
from Time’s relentless
still my heart
and incline it to
Your gentle whisper?
Make me to climb the depths
of Your quiet words of wisdom
so to know that
You are God.
1 Kings 19.12

Such indelible sentiment (no doubt felt by us all) beautifully expressed.
Recalls to mind that Jesus is the author and perfector/ finisher of our faith.
Thank you for sharing this lovely poem.
Thanks! I wish I heeded my own convictions better.
What a wonderful gift you have. I am so glad that I saw your comment on John’s post. One day I hope you will write poetry again.
So very thoughtful of you. Have the funniest thing to share. I thought you were being funny (though sincere, I know) writing as your dog — from the gravatar. So I wrote back as though talking to a dog. Then I saw your About LOL. Your poetry on the simple things has a youthful quality to it. You sure seem to be having a great time blogging. Thank you for your encouragement. Blessings.
Ha! I may be a dog (actually I’m a bitch) and I can type too! Wanna see my resume?
I hope you were responding to my revised response – the one where I explain my error in thinking you were John’s dog. Again, LOL.
For your grandkids…perhaps, The series was my favorite topic to write on (quite a claim, as I’ve loved every minute here).
Thanks so much for the support in feedback, the like, and your time. Blessings.
That is beautiful.

Caroline, did you get my Asian kale chips recipe from myholistictable 2 days ago? Two followers did not….am testing the system. Thank you. Diana
I did not get it, but I’m going to check it out right now and maybe make some this weekend! 🙂
Shoot! Something IS wrong….Ok, thanks, Caroline. Will go back to Tech Support.
Caroline, the setting in my husband’s READER was incorrect after all. This should be the case for you. The 2 links Tech Support provided ARE where you should chk off for instant email delivery. Chk both links. First off, make sure myholistictable does show up under the blogs you follow in your reader. Thanks. I’d love to know delivery’s been updated.

Breathless speaks to the soul’s restlessness to know its Source; the essence of its Self.
Yes. Thanks, Jay. So insightful.
