The Difference

I got up early one morning and rushed right into the day;
I had so much to accomplish, I didn't have time to pray.

Problems just tumbled about me and grew heavier with each task;
Why doesn't God help me, I wondered; He answered, "You didn't ask." 

I wanted to see joy and beauty, but the day toiled on, gray and bleak;
I wondered why God didn't show me - He said, "But you didn't seek."

I tried to come into God's presence; I used all my keys at the lock;
God gently and lovingly chided, "My child, you didn't knock."

I woke up early this morning and paused before entering the day;
I had so much to accomplish that I had to take time to pray.

A Quote by Aristotle on life, purpose, seek, definite, archer, attain, and want

It concerns us to know the purposes we seek in life, for then, like archers aiming at a definite mark, we shall be more likely to attain what we want.

Aristotle (384 - 322 BC)

A Quote by Anaïs Nin on life, meaning, seek, and unity

There is not one big cosmic meaning for all, there is only the meaning we each give to our life. . . . To seek a total unity is wrong.  To give as much meaning to one's life as possible is right to me.

Anaïs Nin (1903 - 1977)
