Old Meeting House Congregational Church (1643)

The Best Hidden Church in Norwich

The best is yet to be

If you have ever known any teachers in your life you will probably know that many of them have what is known as the “magpie tendency” – they tend to collect things which might just come in useful at some stage.

Being an ex-teacher one of the things I have collected are quotes and interesting verses. Perhaps ministers also fill files of ideas for future sermons! Some time ago I found the following verse which has often helped me during difficult times. Unfortunately I have never been able to discover the author.

The best is never over,
The best has never gone,
There’s always something lovely
to keep you struggling on;
there’s always compensation
for every cross you bear,
a secret consolation

hidden well somewhere.
Ends are new beginnings
As one day you will see;
The best is never over,
The best is yet to be.
