Beloved thro’ all my good, thro’ all mine ill

Lord, grant me grace to love Thee in my pain.
Thro’ all my disappointment love Thee still,
Thy love my strong foundation and my hill,
Tho’ I be such as cometh not again
A fading leaf, a spark upon the wane:
So evermore do Thou Thy perfect Will
Beloved thro’ all my good, thro’ all mine ill,
Beloved tho’ all my love beside be vain.
If thus I love Thee, how wilt Thou love me,
Thou who art greater than my heart? (Amen)
Will Thou bestow a part, withold a part?
The longing of my heart cries out to Thee,
The hungering, thirsting, longing of my heart:
What I forewent, wilt Thou not grant me then?

To End All Wars



You have heard that you should love your neighbour and hate your enemy. But I say to you, love your enemy. - Dusty Miller

When Dusty Miller died, something in the hearts and minds of every man died with him. What we had somehow managed to hold on to for years of survival now seemed utterly meaningless. Like God Himself was playing a cruel joke on us all. And so I remembered Dusty's words so very long ago, "Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit." - Ernest Gordon

How does a man repay a selfless act - when his life is saved at the expense of another. - Ernest Gordon

Orange Crocus cultivar

Yellowhammer

Is this a sight of a Yellowhammer?

A friend commented: 
It is likely that you have seen yellowhammer. It could also been a European greenfinch. The beak is a bit stronger on the greenfinch than on the yellowhammer, and this beak seems quite strong. On the other hand, the yellow color seems more like the yellowhammer, so I think you are right. May be you checked the melody as well? It is quite characteristic for the yellowhammer, a counting from 1 to 7 (more or less).

Kjøttmeis

Kjøttmeis remain the commoners around - they are sighted and heard almost everywhere.
