“I don’t know what religion or faith she belonged to and I didn’t care.”~Ichabod

When the earthquake destroyed Haiti, took countless lives and left the survivors with nothing except tears, I saw a woman with her arms stretched out singing.

She was calling to God.

It was her anchor to sanity.

I don’t know what religion or faith she belonged to and I didn’t care.

She didn’t either.

The only thing I know is she probably lost friends, loved ones, home, possessions, all the things we humans cherish.

She was singing.

She wasn’t seeking pity.

It made an impression. A little peace and hope where one would think none existed.

Her soul was with God for the moment. Like the peace one feels in the eye of a hurricane.

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".

  1. Hi Archi;

    I have a question for you and Richard and your friends after today’s stock and European Crisis. This is all about sovereign debt.

    The question is. Give unto Cesar, I think you know the passage.

    Does it mean pay Cesar what is demanded or walk away as it is only materialistic.

    I always accepted the later part of the definition, as not worth paying.

  2. I don’t have an answer to your comment above.

    However, I did want to say *wow* on your Godspot Ichabod! 🙂
    It gave me pause, then I had to read it again..and maybe once more even slower as I reflect over the dumb things I have griped over the past few days/weeks.

    Thank you.
