Far Better Things

Brenda Ann quotes Rumi again. I think this is my favorate poem thus far.

Sorrow prepares you for joy.

It violently sweeps everything out of your house

So that new joy can find space to enter.

It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart

So that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place.

It pulls up the rotten roots

So that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow.

Whatever sorrow shakes your heart,

Far better things will take their place.

  1. Just fabulous. Although when you are in the grip of sorrow or hard times, it is hard to remember this.
    It is worth printing this out and putting it on the wall!
    Thank you….Karen

  2. I love this one too. Thanks for reblogging! ❤

Welcome to TIP. ABC, CBS, NBC and all the cable news channels are all bought and paid for and report what they are told to report. The MSM lies to and instigates people into political argument and gossip that leads to dead-end roads and distracts from the real issues. There is much better informational news reporting away from the Democrat and Republican tail-spinning arguments that are usually rooted in confusion and hate.. TIP is your alternative.
