Call it what you will God/mother/father earth (whatever ?) watches over every living thing until its short tenure in the physical world passes. In the enormity and perpetuity of times great equation we like the lillie shall soon fade away and our spirits will re-enter the unfathomable diversity of the regenerative processes of the cosmos. Perhaps our place as supposedly the most intellectualy gifted inhabitants of earth is not to seek to be so arrogant as to question the reason behind lifes great mystery, but to just participate in its journey as we inevitably must.....

Heres the link to the page whereyou can listen online to this and many other classic poems set to music..

The lilies of the field whose bloom is brief:—
We are as they;
Like them we fade away,
As doth a leaf.
The sparrows of the air of small account:
Our God doth view
Whether they fall or mount,—
He guards us too.

The lilies that do neither spin nor toil,
Yet are most fair:—
What profits all this care
And all this coil?

The birds that have no barn nor harvest-weeks;
God gives them food:—
Much more our Father seeks
To do us good

Researching your posting history, I see you have made exactly 7 posts to these boards, every one of which is spam, pointing readers to your web site. I feel sure you do not read any responses to your spam, or I would take pleasure in being rude to you.

I am certainly not tempted to visit your boards, since you lack spelling and grammar skills.

In the enormity and perpetuity of times great equation

like the lillie

intellectualy gifted

reason behind lifes great mystery
