While re-reading an enlightening book about love, courtship and marriage more than a month ago, I was touched with this inspiring poem.
Sometime, when all life’s lessons have been learned,
And sun and stars forevermore have set,
The things which our weak judgement here have spurned
The things o’er which grieved with lashes wet,
will flash before us out of life’s dark night,
As the stars shine most in deeper tints of blue;
and we shall see how all God’s plans are right,
And how what seemed reproof was love most true.
Then be content poor heart; God’s plans, like lilies pure and white, unfold;
we must not tear the close-shut leaves apart,–
Time will reveal the chalices of gold.
And if, through patient toil we reach the land where tired feet, which sandals loosed, may rest,
When we shall clearly see and understand.
I think that we will say, “GOD KNEW the best!”
“To love is to receive a glimpse of heaven.” ~Karen Sunde
