Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout.
But Love and I had the wit to win;
We drew a circle that took him in!
~Edwin Markham, Outwitted
The gentle thought traced a memory thread to a wee little poem in a thick, dog-eared volume: Best Loved Poems of the American People.
Miss Hale and Mr. Thornton obligingly illustrate this lovely concept,
but truly, the simple idea transects all would-be relationships. . .
including the one Most Precious. . .found in Christ.
Have a lovely day, Best Beloveds,
and may you find yourself outwitted by His circles again, and yet again.
