The Holy Spirit

“The Holy Spirit is to our souls

as the sun is to heaven –  

giving light, giving warmth,

filling with brightness and joy.”[1]

Sunshine provides possibility

and enables nature

to produce beauty

of shape, noise, and fragrance.

Spirit enlightens

and inflames the soul

to make harmony

with reverence, zeal, and kindness.

“The tender mercy of our God,

comes to us from heaven

to shine on those living in darkness,

a guide for the path of peace.”[2]

She listens…

Consoler of the abandoned,

Caretaker of the disabled,

Comforter of the neglected.

Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
