Things Pondered – From the Heart of a Lesser Woman
One of my favorite authors is Christian writer Beth Moore. She is well-known for her bible studies, but not everyone may realize she is also a wonderful poet. In this book, Things Pondered, Beth shares a collection of poetry, memories, and vignettes from her life — stories about marriage and children to friendship, trials, and her relationship with God. The book was given to me when my twin sons were young, and her beautifully written tales of motherhood often brought me to tears. Here is one of her poems.
Satisfy me not with the lesser of you
Find me no solace in shadows of the True
No ordinary measure of extraordinary means
The depth, the length, and breadth of You
And nothing in between
Etch these words upon my heart knowing all the while
