I am a free-lance singer and writer trying to practice "saying what I mean, meaning what I say, and not saying it mean." My goal on this blog is to provoke conversations in which we can be real in sharing with one another -- free to express our points of view, even when we differ. Just today, I posted MY CYBER LINKS under that label (see adjacent list). I am available, and I love it when we get to encourage one another!

Recovery in the Bible (RIB)
The Paradox of Powerlessness
crucified through weakness, yet He liveth by the power of God (2 Corinthians
In nature we see that all the grandest forces
are best expressed through the frailest mediums. The awful energy known as
electricity works most effectually through slender wires. The mighty magnetic
stream is revealed in the trembling needle. Thought is not located in an organ
like a man’s fist, all bone and muscle; its chosen seat is the delicate brain,
and it best acts through fairy cells and attenuated films compared with which
the gossamer is coarse. Life does not reside in the massive skeleton, but
pulses along the silver cord of alarming delicacy.
