cried unto Him, He...

Behold, everything is ready for you; Come.
And it shall be  that  every living thing that moves, wherever the
rivers go, will live. There will be a very great multitude of fish, because
these waters go there; for they will be healed, and everything will live
wherever the river goes. Ezekiel 47:9 And...

The arduous path ahead.
Heart of my own heart,
