17th May - Sunday. No worship left  Posted on 05/17/2009
Yesterday I tried to climb the wall. Don't do it. It doesn't work. I slid ungracefully to the bottom to join my heart. I tried to scrape with my fingers at the cold stone, so I could climb out of myself and reach safety.The...

15th May - An ending defined  Posted on 05/16/2009

    I didn't read all your thing but we have all been desolated at some time in our lives so I sympathize. However, if things are as bad as you say, for God's sake go back home. You can mend in comfort just the same. You haven't got to be a martyr to get better.
