K. Chesterton You’re as welcome as flowers in May. Charles Macklin My mother’s old saying If I were to wish for anything, I should not wish for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of the potential, for the eye which, ever young and ardent, sees the possible. Kierkegaard True elegance consists of saying all that should be said, and that only.

But we should remember that God has placed us in a specific community at a particular time. We’re called to love those around us. Loving them means serving them-and in doing so, we become the best of citizens. S. Lewis For several centuries famous birds have flown over the vast fields of poetry the swallow the nightingale the lark the skylark the linnet the hummingbird the raven the golden oriole and of course the phoenix have all been invited by poets to populate their forests decorate their skies and stuff their metaphors I ’m going to stick my neck out here for the discriminated birds / those that never or only rarely make an appearance those poor forgotten birds that are full of memory Ask Hope, C s ’ b’day and so here I write the canary the sparrow the thrush the blackbird the widow the starling the cardinal the turtledove the magpie the gardener the kingfisher the king-bird so that they can make their way into poetry at least this once even it it’s just /as on this occasion through the back door.

Surprise us with love at daybreak: Then we’ll skip and dance all the day long. Make up for the bad times with some good times; We’ve seen enough ev§l to last a lifetime. Let your servants see what you’re best at- The ways you rule and bless your children. And let the loveliness of our Lord, our God, rest On us, Confirming the work that we do. Oh,yes. Affirm the work that we do. Eugene Peterson’s translation the 90th psalm, The Message Where Christ ˆs, cheerfulness will keep breaking in. Dorothy Sayers A sharp tongue is the only edged tool that grows keener with constant use.
