Imagine I imagine only good for myself and others. Everything we see in the world began with a thought. Rev.

SPIRITUAL POEMS: “The Question” by Ella Wheeler Wilcox — bodyandsoulnourishmentblog

“The Question” Beside us in our seeking after pleasures, Through all our restless striving after fame, Thorough all our search for worldly gains and treasures There walketh one whom no man likes to name. Silent he follows, veiled of form and feature, Indifferent if we sorrow or rejoice, Yet that day comes when every living […]
