Some how in this short piece you have expressed so simply a powerful
understanding that my tired mind can not yet fully comprehend but sees
a hope full light flickering -- and at the same time my being
resonates with some deep recognition of experience that says YES.
For this New Years day can it be that
"My Lord..new heart precious beyond compare .
...whenever I use it I feel nothing but suffering"
expresses the highest and deepest
that up to now has been granted
as we leave 2007; and
"each breath ...Peace...Compassion"
is a responding whisper
to our eternal wish
and God's promise for 2008 and beyond?
with deep Gratitude
