And so, today is the 1st Saturday of Spring...
And it was on the 1st Saturday of Spring last year
that we held the funeral...
For the Sabbath...
Not that we are Hebrew-descent or anything...
We simply have Faith here.
I remember therefore that somber day.
On an extremely sunny first anniversary.
The irony - the wonderful allegory as well...
It is quite telling, indeed,
that it is so.
It is like The Creator Himself Telling me
that there is nothing somber about it
And all is fine and well - luminously.
TRUE Luminescence too...

We shall see each other again, Pai.
Just Not Yet. Not Yet...!
Je me souviens
I never saw him cry
I know he kept all the emotions on the inside
good and bad
I can only hope that I succeeded in alleviating any "down" moments he might have had, in his latter days...
With my humor... With a hug... With a smile. :)
I should have told him more - shared more - in the living years.

Feel free to learn from them - or not...
Angels are needed around the world
Those of us fortunate enough to have precious contacts
in the Heavens above
better make use of those privileges
and ask their near and dear ones up there
to pull some strings on their behalf
not for the purpose of indemnification of sins
past transgressions can only be forgiven ONE WAY
through sincere repentance - and probably some penance as well
Rather, I am pleading for those with contacts up there
to ask - heck, to beg
for them to arrange for the dispatching
the full-fledged deployment
of heavenly attendants, down HERE
where they are sorely needed indeed...
The legend is that the devil made precious stones
down below the ground - where it roamed...
To emulate the grandeur and beauty of the Creation
particularly of the flowers that blossomed so splendidly
Those flowers that God Had Made
And, as always, with everything made by the Creator
that the devil envied with avidity
As with everything else IT did
the devil found a dual purpose for its imitative creativity
Unlike flowers, which grew with abundance
for Our Creator, Our Lord, Our God
Wants us in abundance - in all ways
the devil made its creation scarce and rare...
thus creating the need for it - and a false preciousness
that would stoke the flames of cupidity
and greed - among other things - in the hearts of men
Enough for them to commit atrocities
simply to be able to seize these so-called "gems"
and amass a fortune hence...
Thus the devil is a trend-setter.
Never follow a trend.
Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see the beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

Right actions for the future are the best apologies for wrong ones in the past.

Christ wants to cross our sins out. He invites us to become new men, who would be similar to Him. He calls us to put our trust in Him. By keeping a close relationship with Him we can be unbound from yielding to evil. Together with Mary we thank God, that in Christ He bestowed such great goods upon us. Let us ask Him for our hearts to aim only at that what is holy.
- Paul Bielinski
