For those mourning

For my dear friend Carollynn,

A rose once grew where all could see
Sheltered beside a wall,
And as the days passed swiftly by
Its branches spread, straight and tall.
One day, a beam of light shone through
A crevice had opened wide-
The rose bent gently towards its warmth
Then passed to the other side...
Now you who deeply feel its loss
Be comforted...the rose still blooms there
Its beauty even greater now
Nurtured by God's own loving care.

Heaven must be a little sweeter now
You & your family are in my prayers.

Gorilla Reunion

In the African jungle, conservationist Damian Aspinall searches for Kwibi, a lowland gorilla he hasn't seen for 5 years. Kwibi grew up with Damian at his Howletts Wild Animal Park in England. When he was five, he was released into the forests of Gabon, West Africa as part of conservation programme to re-introduce gorillas back into the wild. Now Kwibi's 10 years old, much bigger and stronger. Will Damian find him? Will Kwibi attack him?

Testify to Love

This is one of my favourite songs of all time. Sung by Avalon

The song Testify to Love is also featured in an episode called Psalm 151 in Touched by an Angel where Winona Judd plays the mom of a boy who has to deal with his terminal illness. Very moving episode!
You can watch it on Youtube...

All the colors of the rainbow
All of voices of the wind
Every dream that reaches out
That reaches out to find where love begins
Every word of every story
Every star in every sky
Every corner of creation lives to testify

For as long as I shall live
I will testify to love
I'll be a witness in the silences when words are not enough
With every breath I take I will give thanks to God above
For as long as I shall live
I will testify to love

From the mountains to the valleys
From the rivers to the sea
Every hand that reaches out
Every hand that reaches out to offer peace
Every simple act of mercy
Every step to kingdom come
All the Hope in every heart will speak what love has done
