sweetness to the soul

Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body–Proverbs 16:24




Fit emblem of this life of ours
Is the little faded bloom:
Today we flourish like the flowers
Tomorrow in the tomb
And yet not like them quite, for soon
They sleep to rise? Ah never!
But we awake again to bloom
In Paradise forever
Forever and forever–Fanny Lonsdale
