Unbridled Love

          Dedicated to the memory of
          Oskar and Emilie Schindler

Oskar and Emilie saved upwards of 1,200 Jewish men, women and children from the gas chambers of Auschwitz and Gross-Rosen during the Holocaust. Today there are more than 8,000 descendents – the precious children and grandchildren.

Emilie Schlindler

Pure Grace

The story of their lives bears witness to a rare purity of goodness, love and compassion. Together they were truly inspiring evidence of courage and human decency during the evil of the Holocaust.

They spent millions to feed, protect and save people. It was everything they possessed and Oskar died penniless. But their existence on this Earth became something of the Eternal. Their Love transcended space and time in ways we shall never understand. Today they are remembered for real courage and rare compassion in a world of unbelievable brutality and evil. And their legacy is simple and powerful and pure. It is Love. And only Love is real.

My Dear Friends,

You, too, are a Savior.
And you are more than One,
The many of One,
The Plural of Infinity,
The Divide of None.

“Whoever saves one life,
saves the world entire.”
– the Talmud

One is the Gift
God benevolently bestowed in you.
But silent and unseen,
The Gift of your being,
Is Infinite in Virtue.
Far, far more than you think you are,
Not apparent to eye or mind,
Your Love outshines the brightest Star.

“Silent and unseen God comes,
but with infinite power and love –
with a love for you
beyond your comprehension.”
– Mother Teresa

The Savior and the Saved

You are here and everywhere,
Now and Forever,
The Savior and the Saved,
Treasure more than precious,
Forgiver and Forgiven,
An Infinite Trace
In the Sacred space
Of Heart and Mind,
Creation of Pure Grace,
Child of Perfection,
Beloved, Embraced.

Your unbridled Love
Harbors the Fleet of all Nations,
When wide the gate is open,
And One Heart
That beats for another,
Goes forth with courage to save
One,
One who is other,
And makes many of One,
Sister and Brother.

“To see a world in a grain of sand,
and heaven in a wild flower;
to hold infinity in the palm of your hand
and eternity in an hour.”
– William Blake

Schindlers

Sacred above all others

For you are
The Plural of Infinity,
The Divide of None,
Everlasting to Everlasting
In Love,
Sacred above all others,
Below
Or Above.

Yes,
You harbor the Fleet of all Nations,
In the Infinite Space
Of a Heart filled with Love,
And Abundant with Grace.

What a Paradise Love is

To Love and be so Loved
And never be let go,
Is to know
What a Paradise Love is,
Cradled by the warmth of Two hearts aglow.

In your heart so afraid of waking,
In Soulful yearnings yet undreamed of,
Reach for the warm Embrace of God
In the arms of One
You Love.

You harbor the fleet of all Nations.

And as two hearts beat as One,
In the Infinite endlessness You feel,
You will
Come to know,
Only Love
Is real.

and then you’ll know
there is no end

Island of Dreams / Movie: Dolphin Tail 2 and Bookstore

for
LeVonna,
who pours the gift of her life
into the Beautiful Vessels of God’s Creative Love
– Precious Children from Heaven Above.

And for
You.


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.

Amen.

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.

We have had a wonderful first week of school. Our trip to Main Event provided fun for everyone and a great end to the week. Students are now planning other adventures and helping to decided where we will go this coming semester.

“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
