Feel the warmth of the sun – it’s lovely,
See the stars shining and twinkling – how beautiful,
Feel the breeze when it’s most needed – what a delight!
Smell the fresh mown grass – isn’t that special?
Imagine a sun drenched crystal stream,
gurgling and overflowing with peace and comfortContinue reading

O, DEAR GOD, ENLIGHTEN US

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
