My thought for today is very profound – but it contains great truth:-
The medieval Persian poet Saadi once put words into a lump of clay that had fallen into his garden.
His garden had wilted during the previous few years but the clay still remembered how it had been previously.
“I am not the rose,” the lump of clay said, “But I have lived near the rose.”
The lump of clay felt that it was somehow better for having lived near beauty. And because of that the rose lived on, even if only in memory.
Whenever we see beauty it always gives our spirits a boost and no matter how speedily the beauty passes through our lives we must never let it go. For it will always remain firmly embedded within our minds.
With many peaceful blessings
