I never saw it, but some say that when Mount Pelée 1
erupted the sunsets were brilliant for months afterwards.
The tons of "Volcano Dust" remained aloft,
Held in suspension by the wind.
The Holy Spirit holds aloft
our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Where Christ is, life has purpose and meaning.
Where Christ is, life is full of beauty and color.
With Christ, life is filled with plenty of anticipation of
an abundant life for years
– eternal years –
The Holy Spirit like the wind
is always moving
revealing eternal beauty and divine character.
. . . and when He comes He will testify about me . . .
