When I walk by the wayside, He is along with me. When I enter into company amid all my forgetfulness of Him, He never forgets me.

Friday, November 17, 2006

If one feels the need of something grand, something infinite, something that makes one feel aware of God, one need not go far to find it.

Sorry about the delay—it was my Anniversary!!!

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.

I love thee to the level of everyday's
Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.

I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints,--I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life!--and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.
— Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Sonnets from the Portuguese
