This poem was supposed to be included in my post with the picture but I bumped the send button a bit early! So here we go......
Rebuke.....By Patricia St.John
I have been very sinful, Lord, today:
Undisciplined, I walked my self-willed way
Unloving, I had given Thee no thought,
and all day long Thy face I had not sought.
Yet though my hardened heart would not repent
Thou led'st me to a twi-lit field of clover
I saw the hawthorn, white as souls forgiven,
and all the sunset colors of Thy heaven.
There was not other person there to see
And so I knew it was all for me
He whom I had neglected all the day,
And from whose loving voice had turned away,
Had borne with all my failure and defeat
And then had cast His beauty at my feet!
