Yesterday's grief

November 10, 2008 5:25am CST
the falling rain of yesterday is ruby on the roses, silver on the poplar leaf, and gold on willow stem; the grief that fell just yesterday is silence that encloses God's great gifts of grace, and time will never trouble them. the falling rain of yesterday makes all the hillsides glisten, coral on the laurel and beryl on the grass; the grief that fell just yesterday has taught the soul to listen for whispers of eternity in all the winds that pass. o faint heart, storm-beaten, this rain will shine tomorrow, flame within the columbine and jewels on the thorn, heaven in the forget-me-not; though sorrow now is sorrow, yet sorrow will be beauty in the magic morn. -Katherine Lee Bates

Tomorrow will always be a new beginning, an opportunity to correct and live life the way we want it to happen, with joy and peace.
