In this new book, Timeless Words of Poetry (published by AuthorHouse), author Esther Thornburg shares insightful thoughts and observations through a collection of short poems. A large portion of her poetry reflects her search for meaning in God’s words, with poems revealing the power, love and wisdom of God. Other poems convey different messages that Thornburg acquired from the many years she lived in agricultural communities. These expressions are inspired by the duties, difficulties and emotions that accompany rural life.

Little Things Can Be Great Things

Little duties done today,
Another step along life`s way;

A word to help a troubled soul
Walk on toward the one great goal.

A smile to brighten a gloomy morn,
The joy to do that others may learn.

His love, His joy, His friendship true,
Mid every storm will guide us through.

Oh! To learn more of His will today,
To have a heart, to follow His way,

To do the duty, for us He has planed,
Know the works of His mighty hand.
