Yes Zep - spot on. Rachealra has a point - there are great imponderables in life that we can't explain - and being unable to explain is OK. However when, as here, we can't explain Evil we can seek to mitigate the effect of Evil by sharing Love. Love (and Hope) is what Lion was sharing and by doing s...

A sad but powerful truth.

Hi Abdullah and welcome. I think you make a great point (sorry Ron!) as it seems to me that you are hoping for a future wife who wants to be herself on her wedding day. That's wonderful. When two people who are just right for each other are getting married there should be absolutely no need for 'let...

Can't believe I didn't comment on this the first time I saw it.
It's beautiful Janice and is now up there alongside Kahlil Gibran's work as one of my favourite ever love poems.

unconditional love in

I like this Luna thank you.
Some of us are like birds migrating and enjoying new lands until an inner compulsion tells us we must move on or die....
Others like the farmers the birds fly over as they migrate who just change their response to each Season as it comes without leaving home....

David Thanks for sharing this. It's great to ask for God's help. I have seen Him help so many, so often in the rooms of AA. One of the ways He sent help was by connecting people together and where one person was too weak to fight a craving a quick phone call connected them (me!) to an ally who helpe...

Beware of preconceptions

our airiest castles tumbled over,
because of lines we neatly drew
and later neatly stumbled over."
