I have had many days like: I have had many days like that.  I should like to think that, when those days are summed up, the purple sunrise fully triumphs over the awakened beast and heals the blistered hope.  Since I was nine years old, Easter has been my very favorite holiday, and your poem brilliantly and succinctly summons back to me, in this dim gray winter, a sense of the joy of this next Easter, with its purple sunrise and calming moments.  Thank you, sir, for posting this.

Thank you so much for those: Thank you so much for those kind words.  I have been experiencing a rough week, and your words are like a refreshing drink of cool water after a time of distress and undue exertion.  Thank you so much.

A superbly composed and: A superbly composed and resolute declaration of your faith. I was very inspired by your determination to be unapologetic about your beliefs, to not allow anyone to infringe upon your fundamental right to worship as you choose (Isn't it odd how those who claim to cherish freedom are often the first ones to deride others for exercising theirs?) and to create such a dazzling, poetic altar for your Savior.    This is stunning:    "The ravings of dim ghosts, each one a plaintive wraith, will never, ever, in this time or in this place, silence my praise to Jesus for His Saving Grace;   nor seal my words in to a silent, oblong box.   I love the ancient Church that is called Orthodox."   Strength, devotion and eloquence: a breathtaking combination.

Wing Glue: $39.95. Like the joke where friend jumps in the hole and asked, "What did you do that for? Now we're both in the hole. The reply, "I know, but I've been down here before and I know the way out."  . Can I help? Is goung to be a popular question soon. No jobs. Covid-19 is he 3rd leading cause of death in usa 2020. . Where ya been Pennsylvania?

"You cannot crush the stem of: "You cannot crush the stem of our hate or our love"   Yes. Yes, indeed. And do we often confuse the two, or are they grafted of the same root?
