From the Valley of Vision

Thou art my good in times of peace,
my only support in days of trouble,
my one sufficiency when life shall end.
Help me to see how good thy will is in all,
and even when it crosses mine
teach me to be pleased with it.
Grant me to feel thee in fire, and food and every providence,
and to see that thy many gifts and creatures
are but thy hands and fingers taking hold of me.

From "The All-good", Valley of Vision

"Valley of Vision" is hands-down, my favorite and most treasured collection of writings, apart from my bible.

To anyone who questions the practicality of theology, I refer to the "Valley of Vision".

Thanks for sharing a bit of it!
