Fran Blackwell wrote:

Why is form necessary for the formless to activate?

What is the great form without form?

Does love have form?

Kindness?

Compassion?

O yes, these eternal qualities that create

within us, that transform human beings

into spiritual beings, sight unseen,

yet all hold the power of love.

Thank you to Colin Hall for his artistry

In the quiet of the evening Walking in the gentle rain I can feel the feelings  of peace, joy and gratitude Soaking into Soul from Spirit. I can hear It As it washes over me again...

MARY HELEN FERRIS's insight:

“Be here now.”

The Creator  spoke

As He hid me and embraced me

Under His all-encompassing cloak.

I am renewed,  refreshed, rejuvenated.
