Tasha Tuesday

For this Tasha Tuesday, I thought I would just leave you with a favorite poem of Tasha Tudor's. I hope you enjoy it...


I come in the little things, saith the Lord:
Not borne on morning wings
Of majesty, but I have set My Feet
Amidst the delicate and bladed wheat
That springs triumphant in the furrowed sod.
There do I dwell, in weakness and in power;
Not broken or divided, saith our God!
In your strait garden plot I come to flowers
About your porch My Vine,
Meek, fruitful, doth entwine;
Waits, at the threshold, Love's appointed hour. I come in the little things, Saith the Lord:
Yea! on the glancing wings
Of eager birds, the softly pattering feet
Of furred and gentle beasts, I come to meet
Your hear and wayward heart. In brown bright eyes
That peep from out the brake, I stand confest.
On every nest
Where feathery Patience is content to brood
And leaves her pleasure for the high emprize
Of motherhood --
There doth My Godhead rest.

I come in the little things, Saith the Lord:
My starry wings I do forsake,
Love's highway of humility to take:
Meekly I fit my stature to your need.
In beggar's part
About your gates I shall not cease to plead --
As man, to speak with man --
Till by such art
I shall achieve My Immemorial Plan,
Pass the low lintel of the human heart.

~Evelyn Underhill

  2. Oh, how I love your Tasha Tuesdays!
    I never heard of her until I came across your blog - she has since become a major lifestyle guru for me ; ) and my daughters love her too. So, thank you so much!
    I like your new, fresh blog space a lot - please do pop over to my novice attempt at blogging and take little look.
    All best wishes.
