    Good to get your thoughts debbie; I do admit Its a rather stark poem.." But it can be viewed like this; Jesus though part of the Godhead.." Did not shrink from becoming incarnate of the flesh, and accepting the role of a servant; and obediant even to death on the cross, he gave his life to ransom many.."

    I enjoyed your comments, Joe. yes, the world is a very strange place compared to even 50 years ago! I guess a lot of things do not change though. Just think of the horrible wars we had before 1950. Maybe people have always been as greedy as they are now? I just don't know.

    This is a mind probe, Joe. We can wish though for things to alway be, but as you say "Nothing ''is'' forever..!" Memories just don't cut some realities.:( Best wishes, Love, Mikki

    I hear ya, Joe. In this expanding universe, that furthest galaxy is a gonna expand clear out of imagination one of these years. I guess that makes that furthest galaxy "nothing," eh. You blew my mind with this one, Joe. Love, daver

    You hit it right on the nose. However I believe that many people don't see it that way. Thank you for your kind words. Harold Swiss was an intresting writer who wrote "Out of Eldridge Street" and "Ebb and Flow" - his biography in two volumes. His sermons were a little too long but he was an important figure - that is what I think, anyway. Peace & Blessings Matthew Anish

    This seems to be an acceptance and a denial all at the same time. Depends on one's perspective. Love, daver
