who pours the gift of her life
into the Beautiful Vessels of God’s Creative Love
– Precious Children from Heaven Above.
It is so very hard to shape how you feel,
to build a pathway home,
With the paving stones of words.
– Wm. C. Anderson
Island of Dreams
– Wm. C. Anderson
From the impossibility of coming
From nothing, it seems
We have risen to a vision
Of unbelievably beautiful dreams.
Spun from the Fabric
Of God’s Eternal Love,
Filled with His Very Own Breath,
Shaped by Desire from Above.
The Tapestry of what is
So radiantly beautiful to see,
Is the Glory of God’s Love,
Woven into you and me.
Now we dwell in the Shadow
Of Everlasting Grace,
And feel the warmth of His Sun,
Like the Breath of Life upon your face.
But when we are through being born,
When this life surrenders us to Love,
One Light shall pierce the darkest night,
A Light from Heaven Above.
And no time will there be for silence.
Someone sings for you and for me,
Sounds of Pure Joy that resonate
In Songs of Love and cherished memory.
And when we drift so very, very far from shore,
And chisel stones to throw at memory,
By countless acts of loving and forgiving,
We skip them over the sparkling waters to be.
Deftly they touch the surface of the past,
Pulsating like the beat of a new born heart,
As God’s Love is Birth Infinity,
Ever here to begin again, again to start.
Guided by such Love given you and me,
We shall not lie afraid in the dark,
For we are held in the Warm Embrace of God,
And alive in each others heart.
God fills the midnight of the Soul,
And in the endlessness of time it seems,
We will, one day, meet again,
On His beautiful Island of Dreams.
A new study – the biggest of its kind – is warning
that our love affair with sugary food and drink
is doubling our risk of heart related premature death.
I was proud of Gavin today. When informed of the risks, he changed his order from a sugary drink to sugar-free ice tea (an excellent source for antioxidant nutrition). Gavin increased his chances of not dying from heart disease by over 100%.
Parents, please give your child the information needed to avoid unbelievable suffering (sugar feeds cancer and causes numerous other serious health problems, like diabetes) and a premature death. Armed with knowledge, they will choose wisely.
Ignorance is a truly deadly commodity.

“I have a theory that people who are addicted to reading
are trying to re-create the joy of being read to as a child by a parent. Being read to as a child is one of the great experiences in life.”
– Billy Collins, Poet in Paris Review

One is to look out at the universe and see yourself,
the other is to look within yourself and see the universe.”
