Stained glass and mournful cries
Clapping and stomping, songs begin to rise
The bellow of the organ fills the room—
Beauty grows from sorrow and doom.
Still the body when the breath is gone
When the soul has left its Earthly home,
Sleep, be still, peace comes in the coming days
While we live on, stand strong, hold on to faith.

Author Image Author Image I love reading the Word of God. With prayer God's Word reveals so much: from comfort to temperance, from perspective to affirmation. Digging into the depths of the Word, cross-referencing history, language and time differences, is a passion of mine. In March of 2015 I decided to go back through the Bible doing an in depth study on each section I read. Eventually I decided to share my journal of notes as I partake in this journey. I hope you are blessed by God and inspired to pursue a deeper relationship with Him. I love reading and learning about God, nature, and science. I am interested in how it all connects. The Creator's fingerprints are all over his creation. We can learn so much about Him and how we came to be by exploring the world around us. Join me as I explore the world and draw closer to the One who created it all.
