There is forgiveness, peace of mind, and a joyous heart for one who, with humility, confesses her shortcomings. Those tears could easily signify a serene release from a burdened soul. I applaud you, Susan, for inferring so much in just a few lines...I see that I have found in you a worthy rival:) ~ warm regards & Hugs // paul

What a gracious surrender! Your "humility" before the Almighty is but a strength and an empowerment.. Let "the rain of your tears" bedew the soil of your soul and let bloom a cleansed and peaceful whole.. May your "only gift" be granted the Divine Grace and Beauty. Your "Tempest of tears" shaked my soul and moved my heart.. Your words of tremendous power and refinement quench the thirst of your avid reader. A great work of artistic spirituality! A FAV. Dear Susan, my love and hugs Be blessed
