"I write this with my mother in mind. Her hair has changed colors before my eyes. Like afterthoughts of an artist, lines have been etched upon her brow. Her arms are much weaker now and her gait much slower; but she is somehow warmer at life’s winter age than she was in the summer days."
"My daughters are in their springtime, my wife is in the middle of summer, and my mother is walking through autumn to step into winter. Together they form a chord of womanhood—three different notes creating a harmonious blend. To the reader, I would suggest: Enjoy every note."
Bishop TD Jakes - Thought of the Day: What is Your Season?
What a beautiful description and celebration of the women in his life! There is so much beauty and love in it!
