van Dyke: time

April 7, 2009

    Love is patient...
    -- 1 Corinthians 13:4a (NIV)

        Time is
    Too Slow for those who Wait,
    Too Swift for those who Fear,
    Too Long for those who Grieve,
    Too Short for those who Rejoice;
        But for those who Love,
            Time is not.
    ... Henry van Dyke (1852-1933), The Poems of Henry Van Dyke, C. Scribner's Sons, 1920, p. 259 (see the book)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, grant that I may never begrudge time to one in need.
