Recently I ran into the phrase, "…All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well" while reading Madeleine L'Engle's A Circle of Quiet. The words kept coming back to my mind over and over the next few days. I decided to look them up and see where they originated.
Multiple sources credit Julian of Norwich, a 14th century mystic, with the words. According to one source, it's "one of the best-known phrases of literature of her era."
Here it is below written another way:
and all shall
and all manner
shall be well.
I like seeing it and reading it like that.

A white statue of Julian of Norwich stands before the Norwich cathedral, Norfolk, UK. And atop the cathedral sits a great little steeple.
Thanks for being a part of Visits and Verse. Have a pleasant weekend.
