Daily work, temptation and trial.

When God wants to drill a man,
And thrill a man, And skill a man,
When God wants to mold a man
To play the noblest part;
When He yearns with all His heart
To create so great and bold a man
That all the world shall be amazed,
Watch His methods, watch His ways!
How He ruthlessly perfects
Whom He royally elects!
How He hammers him and hurts him,
And with mighty blows converts him.
Into trial shapes of clay
Which only God understands;
While his tortured heart is crying
And he lifts beseeching hands!
How He bends but never breaks
When his good He undertakes;
How He uses whom He chooses;
And with every purpose fuses him;
By every act induces him
To try His splendor out—
God knows what He’s about!

Rest in Peace
your own presence. May you have joy and peace in the temple of your senses.
May you receive great encouragement when new frontiers beckon. May you
respond to the call of your gift and find the courage to follow its path. May
the flame of anger free you from falsity. May warmth of heart keep your
presence aflame and may anxiety never linger about you. May
your outer dignity mirror an inner dignity of soul. May
you take time to celebrate the quiet miracles that
seek no attention. May you be consoled in the
secret symmetry of your soul. May you
experience each day as a sacred
gift woven around the
heart of wonder.
