Joy and Woe


Man was made for Joy and Woe,

And when this we rightly know,

Through the world we safely go;

Joy and Woe are woven fine,

A clothing for the soul divine.

~William Blake

    I liken God to the rose, in Shakespeare words.
    Wise and wonderful words, why do we struggle? Why not go with the flow of nature and see clearly?


      Yes indeed… there is deep wisdom to be found all around us if we but look. Thank you so much Jack. Blessings, Gina
