Channels of Gold

20161015_131520

The oneness of leaves moving in the wind, stirs our spirits,

drawing us even closer to the One

through channels of gold,

truly a sign

we are loved,

as prayer escapes

from our hearts.

Our Wedding Anniversary

20170915_165528

Well I am just about the happiest man on the face of the earth! My wife and I are celebrating more than 30 years of our marriage! Yes!! Now we don’t give exact dates over the internet, but we are so excited I have to share this!

My wife is the one I write about, the one I dream about. Life can be horrible when terrible things happen (like cancer), but what matters now is the love we share, and the healing we give to each other!

I could not be happier, and we don’t often hear that from men, so I want to boldly declare that today.

And for our celebration, we went to Washington D.C. Our nation’s capital really is a beautiful city. I highly recommend a visit there. You will find some of the best museums in the world, including the Smithsonian, which is actually many museums.

The Smithsonian has the National Gallery of Art, the African-American Museum (brand new), the Native American Museum, the National Zoo, the Natural History Museum, and many others.

And the city is ethnically diverse. You will find some of the best ethnic restaurants in the world! My wife and I ate at an Indian restaurant which was wonderful.

I also recommend a dinner or brunch cruise on the Potomac River. There are very large cruise boats that feed you a wonderful feast, as you slowly cruise by some of the monuments of this beautiful city.

The Queen’s Journey

brown-woman from bridesHer skin was bathed in frankincense and myrrh, the dark one

clothed in layers of gold linen, descending

from the mountains of Cush, having conquered dozens

of nations, and the hearts of men

she was never faint

for love, and yet

his voice seemed to call to her,

his wisdom

would he accept her anointing?

As they approached the Great City

where he flowed like rivers

she knew, before their eyes ever met

they would conquer

each other.

     

Note: This is speaks of King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba

Revelation

100_1053

Rivers, one of nature’s ways of filling us with awe,

the silence of peace

nourishing our spirits with refreshing

from above, healing

and giving us strength and the audacity

to believe in love, the value

of each of us, here

on the earth.

A revelation really

that we are connected.
