August 4, 2020 || Daily Thought & Prayer
What white means is grasped by sight
Of milk and varied objects white
So heat is known when brought by air
By red hot steel or wood fire’s flare
Can children know of values told?
Unless they see the great uphold
That supreme goodness daily found
When dangers mount up all around?
In diverse ways each myth reveals
Virtue and vice and how it feels
How sins will cause the greatest harm,
While virtue and grace protect and arm
O Lord you inspire story tellers and poets to enlighten my child mind with contrasting scenes of heroism and conquest of evil. When demons arise to weaken me please be my strength and shield to transform them into diamonds.
