Still Saturday: Glory of the skies…


For the beauty of the earth
For the glory of the skies
For the love which from our birth
Over and around us lies,
Christ, the Lord, to you we raise
This, our hymn of thankful praise.

 Folliott S. Pierpont, 1835-1917

Still Saturday: Pathways


“As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.”

Henry David Thoreau

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart; and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths.”

Proverb 3:5-6

Still Saturday: a Sunbeam’s Kiss

THE HUMMINGBIRD

The sunlight speaks. And its voice is a bird.

It glitters half-guessed, half seen, half heard

Above the flower bed. Over the lawn…

A flashing dip and it is gone.

And all it lends to the eye is this –

A sunbeam giving the air a kiss.

Harry Kemp
