A Great Sea

A favorite quote of mine speaks about the word of the Lord and how it is a precious blessing for all ages.

The Word of the Lord is a great sea

whose smiling surface breaks

into refreshing ripples

at the feet of our little ones,

but into whose unfathomable depths

the wisest may gaze

with the trembling of amazement

and the thrill of love.

adapted from Freidrich Farrar¹s translation of St. Augustine


  1. Wow, that's almost transcendent. Thanks.

  2. I am so sorry I can never come up with any comment other than "Wow."

  3. I feel the same way...thank you! I hope to meet you next time Joanne comes up here to see her son Mike and her new grandchild. I have heard so much about you and I am so grateful to be able to have access to this blog...I am daily inspired in ways you don't even know!
    Someday I will be able to leave more knowledgeable comments...for now...thank you!
