A new road or a secret gate
And though I have passed them by
A day will come
I will take the hidden paths that run
West of the Moon and East of the Sun...
--J.R.R. Tolkien/Annie Lennox (Click here to see why Annie Lennox is billed with Tolkien.)
Thank you, Oliver!

This, and my heart beside –
This, and my heart, and all the fields –
And all the meadows wide –
Be sure you count –
should I forget
Some one the sum could tell –
This, and my heart, and all the Bees
Which in the Clover dwell.

“Do not assume that she who seeks to comfort you now, lives untroubled among the simple and quiet words that sometimes do you good. Her life may also have much sadness and difficulty, that remains far beyond yours. Were it otherwise, she would never have been able to find these words.”
--Rainer Maria Rilke

Sunday Snippets-A Catholic Carnival is a forum wherein Catholic bloggers are invited to share their posts with others. Here is a page from my own virtual book of days, A Trail Of Flowers, originally posted last Sunday: it is entitled Reward. May you all have a lovely week filled with the priceless reward of God's grace.

something like the clouds that were in the sky before the sun came out.
You cannot touch the clouds, you know…
but you feel the rain and know how glad the flowers and the thirsty earth are
to have it after a hot day.
You cannot touch love either…
but you feel the sweetness that it pours

“Life is this simple: We are living in a world that is absolutely transparent and God is shining through it all the time. This is not just a fable or a nice story. It is true. If we abandon ourselves to God and forget ourselves, we see it sometimes, and we see it maybe frequently. God shows Himself everywhere, in everything - in people and in things and in nature and in events. It becomes very obvious that He is everywhere and in everything and we cannot be without Him. It's impossible. It's simply impossible. The only thing is that we don't see it."
