The dust returns to the ground it came from,
and the spirit returns to God who gave it.
(Ecclesiastes 12:7; NIV).
Put on your new nature, created to be like God –
truly righteous and holy.
(Ephesians 4:24; NLT).
We come from you;
To you, Lord, we return,
And though we are dust,
We strive to grow like you.
Your Spirit, within,
Shows us your Son’s example,
Helping with all we feel, think,
Say, and do.
We are your home;
Your resting-place; your temple.
Filled with your Holy Ghost,
We serve your Son,
Finding you, Lord,
In all you have created,
And living with you in love,
For we are one.
Whoever lives in love lives in God,
and God in them
(1 John 4:16; NIV).
The person who is joined to the Lord
is one spirit with him.
(1 Corinthians 6:17; NLT).

Thank you so much, Alan. How are you both? XXXXX
We have both been struggling to recover from bad colds lately; I am further along and better than Susan. Although today has seen a marked improvement for her.
Really sorry to hear this, Alan. I hope you are both able to take things as easily as possible. My love to Susan, and I do hope both of you will soon be feeling rather better. With love from Ruth XXXX
Thank you sister
