359. Greatest

About the gift of faith… 

The greatest gift cannot be wrapped,

Unless in tender rhetoric, 

In which, 

It speaks a thousand truths,

Without revealing one.

  2. Eli such a marvelous poem and an apt picture and so true faith cannot be wrapped in anything it has to just come and be with you always.

      Completely! And once you have it, it can sometimes be forgotten, but it can never be lost entirely.

      Thanks for the ongoing support Martha, it means a lot 🙂

      I’m going to release a mini e-book soon. Very excitedly working with an illustrator, typographer and graphic designer. The writing itself is done 🙂
