“The world is indeed full of peril and in it there are many dark places.
But still there is much that is fair. And though in all lands, love is now
mingled with grief, it still grows, perhaps, the greater.” J.R.R. Tolkien, Lord of the Rings
at the end of a week marked
with tragedy, peril, dark places
help me find the fair
green pastures, still waters
light overcoming darkness
love greater than grief
Mary Ann Parker April 20, 2013
“Love greater than grief”–yes, a lovely prayer indeed.
Thank you for sharing this prayertime.
Wendy, it is good to be in the labor room with friends who keep on whispering encouragement. Thank you.
What a blessing your words and the quote are this morning, Mary Ann! It does seem like the birth pains are coming closer and more intense lately: But love still prevails.
Lovely prayer, Mary Ann. I wish I could upload a photo of my roses taken this week. Maybe I’ll email you.
Your roses are breathtaking, Denise. Thank you for emailing the photos.
