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.
