van Dyke: time

Saturday, August 3, 2019
    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, New York: C. Scribner’s Sons, 1920, p. 259 (see the book)
    See also 1 Cor. 13; 2 Cor. 5:14; Gal 5:6; 1 Thess. 1:3; 1 John 3:14; 4:18-19
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, grant that I may never begrudge time to one in need.
