Una Mujer de Fe Extraordinaria : Julie Clinton :
She only had taste and touch and smell. Furthermore, this book was published in , over a hundred years ago, and still, still moves and inspires and is still These words in The Open Door speak for themselves. Furthermore, this book was published in , over a hundred years ago, and still, still moves and inspires and is still relevant, incredibly relevant to our lives. The book is old, and musty, although this printing is from , but my sense of smell was engaged, the touch of an old book left a residue on my hands, and I am allergic and sensitive to the mustiness of books, so I could taste it also.
I am such a dork, I was pretty excited that I stumbled across this book, and had to take pictures of it and try to update it as my first act as a Goodreads librarian. I did write my first description, although I just copied part of the foreword. What if all dark, discouraging moods of the human mind come across my way as thick as the dry leaves of autumn? Other feet have traveled that road before me, and I know the desert leads to god as surely as the green, refreshing fields, and orchards. With every friend I love who has been taken into the brown bosom of the earth a part of me has been buried there; but their contribution of happiness, strength, and understanding to my being remains to sustain me in a altered world.
Humanity, I am sure, will never be made lazy or indifferent by an excess of happiness. Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose. Happiness should be a means of accomplishment, like health, not an end in itself. What is the use of such terrible diligence as many tire themselves out with, if they always postpone their exchanges of smiles with Beauty and Joy to cling to irksome duties and relations?
Unless they admit these fair, fresh, and eternal presences into their lives as they can, they must needs shut themselves out of heaven, and a gray dust settles on all existence. That the sky is brighter than the earth means little unless the earth itself is appreciated and enjoyed. Its beauty loved gives the right to aspire to the radiance of the sunrise and stars. Press the soft blossoms against your cheek, and finger their graces of form, their delicate mutability of shape, their pliancy and freshness. Pile note on note the infinite music that flows increasingly to your soul from the tactual sonorities of a thousand branches and tumbling waters.
How can the world be shriveled when this most profound, emotional sense, touch, is faithful to its service? The stock of my young life which had perished, steeped in the waters of knowledge grew again, budded again, was sweet again with the blossoms of childhood. The world to which I awoke was still mysterious; but there was hope and love and God in it, and nothing else mattered.
Is it not possible that our entrance into heaven may be like this experience of mine? It will require a purpose stronger than any man and worthy of all men to calm and inspirit us. A sane society whose riches are happy children, men and women, beautiful with peace and creative activity, is not going to be ordained for us. We must make it ourselves. I recognize this power in the sun that makes all things grow and keeps life afoot. If you have just moved into the parish, a letter from your previous Pastor verifying the same is acceptable.
