    Very nicely written and very nicely asking Him to answer all our doubts; as He is our Father. And it is to our father/mother we go to when we have questions.

    Inspiration has to come from a point of confidence in ourselves, I think. Than we are more open to accepting the inspiration of another...Think we need humility to get to that point.....but then, what do I know? .....I know that I found this beauty AND, one that I can leave a comment on....Whoop-Dee-Doo.~~~love, moi.xo (Report)Reply

    Inspiration comes from the ultimate void of our minds and souls, when there's a presence who comes in and says'Boy! ! I've got some WORK to do here! Cancel the opera, rooster-fights, and ice skating on a few souls.' Good one! ! xxElysabeth (Report)Reply
