The Books Our Mothers Read
We search the world for truth, we cull
The good, the pure, the beautiful,
From graven stone and written scroll,
And all old flower-fields of the soul;
And, weary seekers of the best,
We come back laden from our quest,
To find that all the sages said
Is in the Book our mothers read.
John Greenleaf Whittier
I hope that I am reading the Book that will give them everything they need for life and godliness, and learning from it, that they might read my life and see Him.
