good quote

" In my opinion, the great single need of the moment is that light-hearted superficial religionists be struck down with a vision of God high and lifted up, with His train filling the temple. The holy art of worship seems to have passed away like the Shekinah glory from the tabernacle. As a result, we are left to our own devices and forced to make up the lack of spontaneous worship by ...bringing in countless cheap and tawdry activities to hold the attention of the church people." ~ A.W.

A Woman's Love (poem)

A woman's love is like a light,
Shining the brightest in the night.
The stars all day patrol the sky,
But only when the night is nigh
We comprehend their splendor. So
A woman's love we hardly know
Until some moment when we need
A hand to help, a light to lead;
Then woman's love is love indeed.

A woman's love when life is best
Is happy as the happiest,
Signs with the singer, with the gay
Joins in the gladdest roundelay
But, in the hour of grief, her voice,
When there is little to rejoice,
Takes on another timbre, when
The cymbals all are still again
Speaks with an angel's voice to men.

A woman's love is good to own
In hours of joy, But he alone
Knows a woman's love, how deep, how strong,
Who has had hurt and loss and wrong.
Perhaps he hardly knew he had
Her love when all her love was glad.
But he shall learn, who love may slight,
A woman's love is like a light,
Shining the brightest in the night

- Douglas Malloch
