In Pursuit Of...? ? ?


Happiness yet something lack,
Joyful…yet not up to the mark,
Parents, friends, brothers, sisters all I have:
Still emptiness prevails in my heart.
Of all these something lags behind!

All night long on my bed,
I looked for the one, my heart loves
I browsed among the people.., yet not found
I slept but my heart was awake
Then at once HOLY SPIRIT came upon my head.
I found what I am searching for:
My love, my strength, my refuge…
Whatnot everything is HE,
Who won my heart with his love on CROSS OF CALVARY!

Now no thought of abandonment,
For my heart delights in CHRIST.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
