Excerpt from Hope As Old As Fire:
" Leave the shadows to do their work, drawing down the light of day. Let the quiet fingers of twilight fold evening's cover over sleeping houses, where innocent hearts rest beneath a blanket of prayer. Let go of care and worry. They will wait patiently for your return. But walk now sleep's solemn path, until the manager mind is at peace, and God's holy dreams rise up around you like a garden growing by moonlight. For these hours you will be a child again, safe and beloved, held by ancient arms, eternal and gentle as nightfall. "
