Batter my heart, three-person'd God, for you
As yet but knock, breathe, shine, and seek to mend;
That I may rise and stand, o'erthrow me, and bend
Your force to break, blow, burn, and make me new.
I, like an usurp'd town to'another due,
Labor to'admit you, but oh, to no end;
Reason, your viceroy in me, me should defend,
But is captiv'd, and proves weak or untrue.
Yet dearly'I love you, and would be lov'd fain,
But am betroth'd unto your enemy;
Divorce me,'untie or break that knot again,
Take me to you, imprison me, for I,
Except you'enthrall me, never shall be free,
Nor ever chaste, except you ravish me.
---John Donne

Even a whisper of the Divine is glory beyond compare to all the content of life lived apart from God.
Archimandrite Sophrony (His Life is Mine, Chapter 8; SVS Press pg. 65)

I'm mother to three beautiful girls. I sell Usborne and Kane Miller books as a consultant with Usborne Books & More because...well...because I love books!
