The world is a caravan

Some years ago, Lori and I went hiking in Southern France. Our group included a wonderful couple from Tennessee, Karen and Jim, who were hiking on their honeymoon. We've stayed in touch ever since (and we hope they will be our guests in C'ville before too long!).

Karen is writer, and her love of words is a gift to her friends. Nearly every day she emails a poem to her friends -- and today's resonates deeply with me. Here it is: 

The world is not a courtroom
By Saadi

The world is not a courtroom,
there is no judge, no jury, no plaintiff

This is a caravan,
filled with eccentric beings
telling wondrous stories about God
