All that is gold does not glitter

I love this poem from The Lord of the Rings, and I feel like not many people know that these two beautiful, often extrapolated quotes are lines A and B of a Tolkien poem. Tolkien was a Catholic, which is pervasive in his writing and this poem, in particular, but it obviously speaks to most of us about several universal things.

For me, the first 4 lines are about the value of what is not seen above all else, and how we must nurture these “intangibles” in ourselves.

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king

Super Soul Sunday- Whole 30

Super Soul Sunday

The heavens make me feel so small, but so powerful. Did anyone else see the crescent moon pass under the crescent Venus last night? Be humble, for you are made of earth. Be noble, for you are made of stars.
