Lenten vespers meditation, week 3

Pay it
Forward

33 value - Virtual OK - Posted Mar 25, 2017

This has been another busy week with my grandparents (2 brief hospitalizations and assisting with discharge to assisted living).

So, my own writing will wait for next week. Today I am leaning on the words of Robert Frost. In reading this, I've found myself wondering about times in my life I have acted the roles of the different characters. Are you the farmer who planted the tree? Are you one of those sitting in the warm house? Are you the peach tree?
Bless you.

There Are Roughly Zones

We sit indoors and talk of the cold outside.
And every gust that gathers strength and heaves
Is a threat to the house. But the house has long been tried.
We think of the tree. If it never again has leaves,
We'll know, we say, that this was the night it died.
It is very far north, we admit, to have brought the peach.
What comes over a man, is it soul or mind
That to no limits and bounds he can stay confined?
You would say his ambition was to extend the reach
Clear to the Arctic of every living kind.
Why is his nature forever so hard to teach
That though there is no fixed line between wrong and right,
There are roughly zones whose laws must be obeyed.
There is nothing much we can do for the tree tonight.
But we can't help feeling more than a little betrayed
That the northwest wind should rise to such a height
Just when the cold went down so many below.
The tree has no leaves and may never have them again.
We must wait till some months hence in the spring to know.
But if it is destined never again to grow,
It can blame this limitless trait in the hearts of men.

Interesting meditation. I didn't know what Lenten vespers was, but I enjoy all types of meditation so I was eager to learn.

Anne is so amazing. She did an incredible job researching the ancestry of my family. I never thought I would actually care about this so much, but it... is really cool learning about your connections to other parts of the world. Anne is very thorough and professional. Fantastic job!show more

Anne has a wonderful sense of humor. Planting weeds in place of seeds, will definitely make the hall of shame *wink wink*. Thank you Anne for your gen...uine soul, and your dedication to the light. You will be in my prayers as you take on the task that Heaven has given you, and I am routing for you. Thanks for taking a chance on me with your private life and healing. I respect your vulnerability and look forward to an update and a new friend. God Bless. show more

About Anne Varberg

Philosophical ENFP, not tied particularly to doing things the typical way. Idealistic volunteer. Not good at the rat race. Healer instincts. Part Sami - my kiddo teases me for being an oppressed whit...e person - they keep me grounded and somewhat humble ;) bad catholic hoping to attain heaven along with everybody else because otherwise it'd be a pretty boring place and I don't think God is boring like that. I see God in you :)show more
