I listen to the gentle murmuring voice
Of our city, awake despite the hour
And I linger, unwilling to return
To the television world inside — droolingmonkey

The Blessing

On Sunday we went to church with Phil and Millie.It was a huge church with a great chior of voices and a loud effervescent band playing,all singing loud to God.All races of people all loving each other.
The Pastor preached about how we should not judge each other.He talked of love and of understanding and of how we will all end up in heaven with God.He was a nice man and shared some funny stories.
At the end of the service he asked anyone to come forward for prayer.Anyone with a need,anyone who wanted to be annointed.Phil looked at James...James hesitated.I nodded my approval.Millie and I held onto each other while my rough biker man went forward with his brother...they slowly made their way to the front.The Pastor laid his hands on James forehead and annointed him with oil.My man and his brother cried.Me and Millie cried at this amazing event passing in front of us.James was held aloft in a sea of love.The congregation prayed for him.He felt a great peace wash over him encompassing his soul.
He was blessed by the spirit of God.It has changed him,softened him.It has made him even more loving...He is at peace with himself.

Praise God!! Thank you Heavenly Father for laying your hands upon my dear friend James, for healing his spirit & his heart, for giving him peace. "By His stripes we are healed". In the precious name of Jesus. Amen.
