THE TWO SUFFICIENTS
Evil shall pass with the day that brought it,
As the sea is stayed by the barrier land:
When the Giver of Good shall say, "No farther,"
And bid the foe-man restrain his hand;
But the grace of the Lord outstays the evil,
Outlasts the darkness, outruns the morn,
Out watches the stars in their nightly vigil,
And the foe that returns with the day re-born,
As he left it unwearied, shall find it unworn.

I have another book by Paul Bunyan, The Holy War, which I am going to read next. These books are old. The re-printing of Grace Abounding was 1907. Pilgrims Progress, I found at a flea market in Pennsylvania years ago. I had several paper backs that I have read through the years. But this one is hard-back with picture illustrations. I have been a book collector through the years because I love to read. I looked at my shelves one day and thought, am I going to read these? If not, why not get rid of them? But a book, to me, is like a friend. I can't part with them.
So, I started reading and am enjoying it. What have you read lately?
