Spirit to spirit


Pat, I was talking to God last night and your image (not your name) came up. You realize that we (and God) no longer use words to communicate? Prayer too often uses words and thoughts to communicate spiritually but words do not do the job. Spiritual communication involves feelings like when you feel the love in a beautiful melody or feel the meaning in a moving landscape. I’m not even sure God hears us when we speak, especially to Him. He faithfully holds true to His promise to be close to the broken-hearted (Psalm 34:18) and to love us unfailingly (2 Peter 3:9) but this doesn’t mean talking to us in words. The Holy Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.” -Romans 8:26-27 Remember how as a deeply hurt child you went to your parent, and he/she comforted you by holding you tight? God is LOVE and He does the same – enveloping you in His LOVE! Yes, sensing your presence even though no words are spoken is communicating. Being with you within me and God is an extremely vivid, intense, and real experience “more real than physical life.” Yes, we still love and are God and us!

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.
