All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost,
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots cannot be reached by the frost,
.. from the ashes a fire shall be woken,
a light from the shadows shall spring.
Renewed shall be the blade that was broken.
The crownless again shall be king.”
I saw this quote on FB and it rang shrilly in my mind all day! The words are deep and in a way, I found the words hopeful, I hope you do too because everything is not as it seems, sometimes what you perceived to be a problem might actually be a blessing in disguise! My only wish for you this week my friends – is strength, I hope you’ll have the strength to accomplish what you set out to do.
Have a fruitful and eventful week filled with love and laughter!
Seyi Sandra David. 🙂
Ah! This reminds me of Aragon and the reforging of the sword in the LoTR. I love most of the quotes from the movie and the book. Thanks for taking me down memory lane, sis. Blessings 🙂
I’m glad you like it! It stuck to me like glue all day and I knew I had to post it! Oh I love ‘Lord Of The Rings,’ it’s a film (and the book) that one would remember for all time! Thanks for stopping by!
Much love. 🙂
May your good wishes be reflected back to you; may you seek and find, discover and share.
Thank you dear friend, I wish you the same as well!
Reminds me of “Lepanto” by Chesterton, especially the line about, “…when all the world was young.”
Exactly! I checked it out and had goose pimples on my arms reading it! Thanks for sharing!
Great photo and words. Hopeful indeed, may you have a great week as well. 🙂
Thanks John, I wish you the same!
Seyi, you are beautiful, and this time your words are inspiring. Sometimes I don’t agree with you because of your religious take on things but Mr Tolkien never fails to inspire me. For some reason he always finds the right words. As do you my inspiring and beautiful lady. Uhuru 😀
Thank you Mjollnir, I appreciate your comment, I love when people disagree with me because I’m certainly fallible and a Christian, that aside, I love Tolkien and his deep poems. I’m curious though dear friend, what’s the meaning of Uhuru? 🙂
Yeah! 🙂 🙂
hey Seyi…..it wasn’t the words for me today, it was the photo 🙂
The beauty of a great picture, like the artistry of words, is truly inspiring…strength back at you my sister 🙂
Thanks JC, I love the photo too when I saw it, I’m glad you like it! Thanks for stopping by dear friend!
That image is such a striking backdrop to those amazing words. I find them encouraging, too!
I’m glad you like it, I appreciate your visit and comment!
So true… 🙂 😉
Very inspirational. Thank you for sharing it 🙂
Thanks for reading aedania, enjoy the rest of your day!
Exquisite photo and words, thanks for sharing Seyi!
Thank you Christy!
Your words truly inspire me 🙂
What a lovely quote and your genuine words are inspiration to us all!
Enjoyed the inspiring quote–AND tomorrow is Wednesday!
Thank you dear friend! The story would be live in a few hours!
