I believe it's what we believe that makes all the difference for us while living on this earth. I take the Bible seriously but not literally. And I try to follow Jesus without embarrassing God.

"When two people relate to each other authentically and humanly, God is the electricity that surges between them." Martin Buber
The Goddess Companion Her beauty shines forth: Kokyanwhuti, she who gives light and nourishes life, the Mother of all that lives and shall live. There she stands, dressed in soft wool, white and blue, woven with the symbols of womanhood, the butterfly and the blossom. Turquoise and shell and coral: these are her jewels. Fair and warm and tender: these are her expressions. Gleaming white: this is the color of her soft skin boots. Look how she smiles at us as she dances on the shifting sands of time. Look how she smiles at us before she disappears. ~Hopi Creation Myth

I'm sorry for your loss. And that explains your long absence.
Don't be a stranger--it would be wonderful to chat again. Love and light, Annie
