For the Beloved – November 24th

For the Beloved by Adelaide Love

Let there be you beside me in the twilight
After the color and vehemence of the day,
When the silence holds, as a shell holds a pearl in its hollow,
The word that we need not say.

Let there be you beside me in the twilight
After the splendor and turbulence of the years,
When the silence shall hold remembrance of laughter and heartache,
Of peace and passion, of hope and desperate tears.

Let there be you beside me in the twilight
As my lips assume the silence no lips have broken,
And death shall find that for two so long accustomed
To dusk without need of words, he has no token.

Reading, reading, reading – November 23rd

Every year I try to read a piece of classic literature. This year I have been working through Persuasion by Jane Austen, but today I made a purchase of another classic and so I might just have to read it too. Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan. Such a amazing story, very vivid, a recommended read for sure. I love old books, I love the way they smell, the way they fill, being able to turn the yellowed pages. There is just something to actually reading from a real book that I don’t think any eReader will ever be able to duplicate. Sorry all you people who love your eReader, I am an old fashioned girl. I’ll stick with my books!

Today’s purchase:

“For why? The Lord our God is good,
His mercy is for ever sure,
His truth at all times firmly stood,
And shall from age to age endure.”

Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan

Have a blessed evening!
