The Instinct of Hope

John Clare

Is there another world for this frail dust
To warm with life and be itself again?
Something about me daily speaks there must,
And why should instinct nourish hopes in vain?
’Tis nature’s prophesy that such will be,
And everything seems struggling to explain
The close sealed volume of its mystery.
Time wandering onward keeps its usual pace
As seeming anxious of eternity,
To meet that calm and find a resting place.
E’en the small violet feels a future power
And waits each year renewing blooms to bring,
And surely man is no inferior flower
To die unworthy of a second spring?

A poem of hope as we enter Spring finally. 🙂

God bless you all my darling avidReaders and have a great weekend!

Have a Happy Spring Day, all my dear Avids!

I am currently typing this to you in freezing cold temperatures. I can barely feel my hands, on top of that we have load-shedding (scheduled electricity cuts), but praise God, our boss gave us a generator for all the load-shedding periods. She doesn’t know it, but she’s amazing! God used her without her even knowing it.

A freezing spring day. What a cruel joke, right? Anyway, I’m sure all of you across the globe may not be feeling this cold like we are in Gauteng, SA. If you’re lucky enough to be close to the equator it’s probably warmer. Good for you, guys!

I wanted to wish all of you a lovely Spring Day, whether you’re in cold, sweltering or perfect weather. I can’t believe it’s the 1st of September, we’ve made it through so much this year, guys! I know we can make it through much more, by God’s grace! He has kept us through so much already.

For all of you who have joined recently, I want to personally welcome you to our happy little family and hope you will enjoy your journey further with us! Should you have any questions feel free to contact me either via the comment section on my blog or on any of the below social platforms.

God bless you all, my darling avidReaders!
