Russian Love

One of my passions is Russian history. Part of that love is Russian poetry. I came across this one this morning in Starbucks.

1. Please don’t ask me questions and don’t wonder…
2. Don’t trust me when I say, in sorrow…
3. Since I’ve been all alone, since you have been so distant…

Alexey Tolstoy
(translated from the Russian by Alec Vagapov)

My thoughts went to God as I read this. How often we ignore Him in our lives. We fear His questions and we hide the true answer.

However, He doesn’t hide and He is never distant.
