3rdfor SIGHT

If we should really SEE
god one DAY,
we're going to SAY:

"You've ALWAYS been LIKE THIS:

You've been EVERYONE 
that I have LOVED.
You've been EVERYONE 
that has LOVED me.
Everything FRIENDLY or GOOD.
Everything that has helped me 
to proceed on my way.

It has ALWAYS been YOU."

(C.S Lewis)

Who is GOD?
No thought ascends him
no PERSERVERANCE will reach him
no PROFUNDITY will fathom him.

[BUT] Who straightens up for LOVE,
[is the one who] reaches up to god.
Who submits to love,
fathoms his deepness.

(Jörg Zink)

Where there is no human DOUBT,
there is no ANSWER given
theHoly Spirit.

Without a PRAYER
the SOUL misses
its FOOD.

a guest in your house."
Today, not tomorrow.
