Humbled by the Spirit

Just as I was fuming over the crashing of my new Vista laptop, I got this marvelous email in response to the invitation for the next session of our study circle (and all of a sudden, the annoyance with Vista and its instability disappeared):

What a great delight it was to be in your home Monday evening.  I cannot thank you enough, since every aspect was beautiful and memorable.  Every single aspect.
I have cancelled my attendance at my annual condo meeting in Washington next Monday evening so that I can be with you and the friends again.  Although I was supposed to be actively involved in my condominium association,  they will do just fine without me.  And I cannot miss, I repeat, cannot miss, the next session of the most beautiful and meaningful study circle I can possibly imagine.
I am just humbled by the power of Baha’u’llah’s Writings and the spirit they inspire.
I implore Thee by the glory of Thy Manifestation and by the power of Thy might, Thy sovereignty and Thine exaltation to render victorious those who have arisen to serve Thee, who have aided Thy Cause and humbled themselves before the splendour of the light of Thy face.

(Baha’u’llah, Tablets of Baha’u’llah, p. 233)
