I Miss God - Not all who wander are lost.
I was intrigued when I eyed this bumper sticker the other day. I've often heard the expression, but it resonated loudly with me this time.
A little research and digging as to where the phrase originated from:
All That Is Gold Does Not Glitter is a poem written by J. R. R. Tolkien for his fantasy novel The Lord of the Rings. It alludes to an integral part of the plot. The poem reads:
All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.
