Primitive Christianity Revived, Again
"Let us labor for an inward stillness--
An inward stillness and an inward healing.
That perfect silence where the lips and heart
Are still, and we no longer entertain
Our own imperfect thoughts and vain opinions,
But God alone speaks to us and we wait
In singleness of heart that we may know
His will, and in the silence of our spirits,
That we may do His will and do that only”
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Thank you for posting this. It really touched my heart. Before I moved, I had a little 'alter' of sorts. It was a collection of different little things that meant something to me, or gave me a sense of peace, or worth. I have been in my new home almost two years, and have been missing it. 'Let us Labor...' is just the type of thing I would write out and possibly frame to put on it. I think after the new year i will have to find a home for my little 'alter'. In the mean time, I'll copy this and tuck it in my bible.:)
I'm glad you liked it Tina :^)
Well said. .
Thank thee Chris :^)
