For the one adrift there is a shore




I hear you whisper, "Bring me word of your unfailing love

I wake within my refuge wrapped with cloths bereavement spun

The shroud was bound to be unraveled in the Sacred Heart of Christ

The Resurrection saved us both from a life undone

from "Unfailing Love" ©2021


A She saw his tears as they would fall,

Each glinting in his candle's light,

On the far bank of Lake Lethe.

Past eyeless fish, ripples spread wide.

If only he could now be reached!

What deal has left him here like this?

Love will not leave his soul in hell.

The ripples from her tears met his.

excerpt from "The Path from Lake Lethe"

It behooves us to remember to consider the source of information and to examine more than one viewpoint when looking for truth about anything, including the truth about God. - excerpt from "Receive God's Self-Revelation"
