As down in the sunless retreats of the ocean Sweet flowers are springing no mortal can see, So deep in my soul the still prayer of devotion, Unheard by the world, rises silent to Thee. As still to the star of its worship, though clouded, The needle points faithfully o'er the dim sea, So dark when I roam in this wintry world shrouded, The hope of my spirit turns trembling to Thee. -- Thomas Moore UnknownSparkling

"The wings of the dove do not weigh it down, they carry and support it. And so the thought of God is never a burden; it is a gentle breeze which bears us up, a hand which supports us and raises us, a light which guides us, and a spirit which vivifies us though we do not feel its working." -Francois Malaval UnknownSparkling

The woman whispered, "God, speak to me" and a meadowlark sang. But, the woman did not hear.
So the woman yelled, "God speak to me!" And the thunder rolled across the sky. But, the woman did not listen
The woman looked around and said, "God let me see you." And a star shone brightly. But, the woman did not notice.
And the woman whimpered, "God show me a miracle!" And life was born. But, the woman did not know.
So, the woman cried out in despair, "Touch God and let me know you are there!" Whereupon, God reached down and touched the woman. But, the woman brushed the butterfly away and walked on.

"God has revealed his grace for the salvation of all people. That grace instructs us to give up ungodly living and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in this world, as we wait for the blessed Day we hope for, when the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ will appear. He gave himself for us, to rescue us from all wickedness and to make us a pure people who belong to him alone and are eager to do good." - Titus 2
