Whether We Know It Or Not





The shawl that night lay, dark and deep
Across earth’s hustle-bustle sweep
Is thinning; and the sleep that bore
Today away, wakens once more

Light, weighted with life’s hope-and-trust
Inclines our feet toward its dust
Where Unknown spills God’s will or else
The consequence of serving Self

Wise and foolish alike commence
Toward dusk’s ruby-throated Thence
And whether we know it or not
We go, but by the grace of God

Pray for The Tippetts as they mourn and rejoice, okay?

' I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being', Eph.3:16

  1. I am weeping after reading the link to The Tippetts. I hadn't known of this woman, her blog and her journey. God is faithful to the end. Thank you for sharing. Have a blessed day and week.

    1. Pamela, I also just found this blog not so very long ago and have been weeping/praying along-side many others! If you get a chance, I encourage everyone to read her book, the Hardest Peace. It will inspire the reader to live our best with what we have!

      God is faithful.

      Know therefore that the LORD your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commandments. Deut.7:9
