From the Earth We Do Rise


from the earth we do rise

born of spirit and earth
we are

a wee tiny baby
potential to grow
on and on

eating breathing drinking
from the bosom
of mother and earth

from the earth we do rise
bodies made from this planet
filled with eternal spirit
~

I would like to thank Ces for honoring me with her beautiful 
Arija award. 
This award honors lovely Arija, living life fully
and the gift of friendship, sisterfriends.

Thank you dear Ces ~

    Incredible reflections - both words and images. It reminds me how babies reflect love and as adults we reflect energy, just as there are reflections of the earth in the water. Thank you Tammie!

  28. Your posts always have such magic and wonder for me...I wish that could comment on each of them...but sometimes I just can't find the words after visiting your photos or reading the poetry. Just wanted to let you know that they are beautiful and that they add beauty to my day each time I see them. Blessings!

  29. Born Again in Baptism

    One key Scripture reference to being "born again" or "regenerated" is John 3:5, where Jesus says, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God."

    This verse is so important that those who say baptism is just a symbol must deny that Jesus here refers to baptism. "Born again" Christians claim the "water" is the preached word of God.

    But the early Christians uniformly identified this verse with baptism. Water baptism is the way, they said, that we are born again and receive new life—a fact that is supported elsewhere in Scripture (Romans 6:3–4; Colossians. 2:12–13; Titus 3:5).

    No Church Father referred to John 3:5 as anything other than water baptism.
