Quote by Madeleine L’Engle

“The important thing is to recognize that our gift, no matter what the size, is indeed something given us, for which we can take no credit, but which we may humbly serve, and, in serving, learn more wholeness, be offered wondrous newness.”

Madeleine L’Engle
Walking On Water, p. 195 – 196.

more colors of blue
in Lake Michigan
than I can name
the wonder of always learning
dreaming new dreams
