I came across this beautiful poem from more than a century ago. It spoke to my heart so I’ve added some pictures to the words. God bless you throughout this special day.
All Things Are Full of God
by: John Stuart Blackie (1809-1895)
- All things are full of God. Thus spoke
- Wise Thales in the days
- When subtle Greece to thought awoke
- And soared in lofty ways.
- And now what wisdom have we more?
- No sage divining-rod
- Hath taught than this a deeper lore,
- ALL THINGS ARE FULL OF GOD.
- The Light that gloweth in the sky
- And shimmers in the sea,
- That quivers in the painted fly
- And gems the pictured lea,
- The million hues of Heaven above
- And Earth below are one,
- And every lightful eye doth love
- The primal light, the Sun.
- Even so, all vital virtue flows
- From life’s first fountain, God;
- And he who feels, and he who knows,
- Doth feel and know from God.
- As fishes swim in briny sea,
- As fowl do float in air,
- From Thy embrace we cannot flee;
- We breathe, and Thou art there.
- Go, take thy glass, astronomer,
- And all the girth survey
- Of sphere harmonious linked to sphere,
- In endless bright array.
- All that far-reaching Science there
- Can measure with her rod,
- All powers, all laws, are but the fair
- Embodied thoughts of God.
- Consider Psalm 8.

Thank you Marie , I like how you added the pictures, well done and I really appreciated the Poem All Things Are Full of God , so very True. I created a Power Point on the Solar System for Ron’s Grandson Nick, I posted it on the Blog some time ago but will do so again as I have now adapted it in parts, it’s long but interesting as it focuses on God as The Creator, yes very True…All Things Are Full of God.
Thank you again Marie for your compassion and prayers, I miss Mum but rejoice she is with The Lord and is not suffering.
