day nineteen

“…cause him to enter Thy glorious paradise, and perpetuate his existence in Thine exalted rose garden, that he may plunge into the sea of light in the world of mysteries.


“These days are swiftly passing and this mortal life will remain fruitless and without result. Therefore, while there is yet time and the arrow is in the bow, enter ye the chase and strike ye the game.

leila/right (sydney, australia): Sour fruit is still fruit. And there is always sugar.

    I live in a very small community. I enjoyed getting up every morning before sunset, reading the writings and seeing these beautiful photos. I felt so connected to entire Baha’i community. Thank you so much. Happy Naw Ruz!

    I love these reflections: “Absence is such tangible presence.” and “Sour fruit is still fruit.” Keepers for sure! Thanks to all for bringing such enrichment and added dimensions to the Fast.
