The unfolding of your heart and your love for your daughter is much like that of a flower petal, opening slowly, but surely, revealing your love for your beautiful little girl. She will be so very proud of you when she is older knowing that you thought of her as your main feeling for living. This really touched my heart, Asa. I have long been a fan of your Mother's writings and am now a fan of yours.

|Such a beautiful poem and wonderful expression of love. Thank you for your review of my poem " Seedtime and Harvest" as well. You mentioned a line which reminded me of Romans 8:28 - And we know all things work together for the good to those who love the Lord and are the called according to His purpose. I would like to share this affirmation with you: Psalm 143: 8-12

|Truly a gift from God, every child is. Asa, you probably sensed this from the time Shaniah was born, and as she grows and her life unfolds before you, you feel the love for her that God intended. I'm so glad that you are becoming more attuned to the heavenly realm as time goes on...so glad God has blessed you with this beautiful little daughter.
Love and prayers,

|this is deeply beautiful Joyce
your son is now in the place
where he can see without his eyes
and it is a beautiful place to be...
I don;t recall what incarcerated him
but I do hope that he & your family
will all continue healing as it is clearly'
evident he has his new awakenings deep inside
his heart & soul to write such a beautiful piece
of his heart...

|To understand our "place" and "purpose" gives life true meaning... and there is no greater meaning to life than love. To understand His love is Our love means that nothing can ever separate us one from another. Every moment in love is "now". Thank you, Asa and Joyce, for sharing your moments with us and each other for ever. This poem stands outside of both time and place but it written on and in a true heart. Bless you all. xx|
