To Love Truly


I need some help with this. Yes I am aware of my thinking. Yes I feel Patricia Bow lives and loves within me and in the arms of Christ. And Yes I feel her presence daily. Love is forever there is no end! But in that cavern inside my head, where is the God within? It is very dark in this cavern. Where is God? I pray, Heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ send your Holy Spirit to fill me with the light promised in Pentecost; that I may be a channel of the love of God in the world. I believe, help me in my unbelief. Light my darkness. Amen.

Much to my surprize, in that cavern in my head, it is not dark; there is light! There is no sun, no stars only the radiant abyss that surrounds, that emanates from our (Pat and I) oneness with God! Delicious freshness; light without a source. The dream tonight is of Pat and I going swimming at Wasaga Beach. Hand in hand we walk into the still water in the pearl white/blue light. “What needs could we have, … we are full now, not empty. We are in Love Himself, not lonely. Strong, not weak… we have begun to love truly.” [apologies to C.S. Lewis ‘The Great Divorce’]

About thebows99krug

Hi, I am Eric, a retired librarian. I was born in St. Michael's Hospital, Toronto and raised in the downtown area north of the Art Gallery, south of the University of Toronto. I went to Orde Street Public School, Harbord C.I., University College at the UofT and the UofT's Faculty of Library and Information Science. I meet my wife Patricia at FLIS; our first date was on November 15, 1968. We were engaged February 14, 1969 and married on June 21, 1969. Our family includes son, James; daughter-in-law, Erin; (both writers), grand-daughters, Vivian and Eleanor; and Sonic, a very friendly ginger tabby. My beloved wife died January 7, 2017 and our 19 year old cat Pooka died January 8, 2017. I would like to hear from any other class of '63 alumni of Harbord C.I. and class of '67 alumni of UofT's University College.
