Into The Wood
Accompanying poem to the last three posts... ••• A few years back I embarked on a series of poems exploring the transformation of friendship. This began by chance after opening an old book of poetry and finding an inscription from a dear professor, long since lost from my everyday. He finished with these lines: “Someday write a poem about me. About this I would care.” ••• And so began the Paradise Lost series. Each poem about a different friendship, in some way changed or transfigured.••• And one by one, I have been turning the poems into little art books. It is as if with each completion I am able to put them to bed; tuck them in & lay them in the grave of forgiveness & grace. My little elegies to loss. ••• There are a few more poems in the series which yet need to be illuminated in book form. But I must put them back on the shelf for a few months. I have a little show (my first since my artisanal rebirth) coming up in December which will feature my paper-assemblage work. Hoping to share the early-workings of these new pieces soon.

There are 7 Ember Laws on planet Lornaiya🌈 (from the Sujemm novel)
6th Ember Law
Indigo is the forgotten color of the rainbow. It is easily overlooked. If someone asked you to name the seven colors of the rainbow would you forget Indigo? It is also a color being questioned on its place in the color spectrum😉
Holy Spirit is easily overlooked or forgotten.
Satan has done everything he possibly can to make sure divisions and arguments arise into churches like vicious monsters tainting the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
Even the world attacks these precious gifts of the Holy Spirit. There is an absolute war upon it.
If your son asks for bread from any father among you, will he give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent instead of a fish? Or if he asks for an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!
I wonder if Satan attacks this so much because in John 14:12 Jesus says greater works than these will we do, because he goes to His Father.
John 16: 5-15 is titled The Work of the Holy Spirit. A promise of having a deeper relationship with God and doing his Kingdom Work! 🤔I wonder if this is why the gifts of the spirit have been attacked so viciously?? Remember it is good to talk to the Holy Spirit!😊 It is good to seek and do His work!🤗
Remember the gifts of the Holy Spirit are really more about blessing others! LOVE AND HIS WORK!💖 Have a blessed day!!🤗 P.S. it was really hard to get my app to make the pic indigo...not even sure if this pic is indigo😂🤣😂🤣 I tried🤣
