Shadows In The Spring


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.”

By J.R.R Tolkien

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 – Β 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!

Your friend,

Seyi Sandra David. πŸ™‚

    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 πŸ˜€
