Happy, once again, to thank Laura and the CS for this new session.
It makes me feel good and cheers me up, sometimes faltering, in the face of all the imbecility and cruelty of some in this world.
The few rare people I still saw are all vaccinated… ..
They consider me irresponsible and not an adult not to get vaccinated
So we don't see each other anymore, and I don't think I want to either because, although living in Belgium, they totally approve of Macron and his decisions, and everything in between.
All is said.
I liked what l apprenti de forgeron
« Beyond the reading exercises, I think the best example for all of us here is Laura's life: a mother who, for the love to her children, has fought bravely against dark and predatory forces and who has made every sacrifice to protect and tell the truth to her little ones. And also she share her priceless discoveries with millions of people around the world! It is a history more fascinating than any religious and fictional story that I have ever read. And very real. »
And it is quite true:
Not being able to read the last books recommended by Laura because there is no translation in French, and putting all my files in order, I came across "Aventure avec les CS" which I had read at the time when Laura uploaded them.
But reading them then, or now, is very different: times have changed dramatically and I also evolved (well, I hope).
Also, I read the passage where Laura talks about Ark's struggles during the floods in Poland, when in Belgium and Germany there were these frightening floods.
I wondered if this was "natural" or if it reflected something else important ...
With these floods, we saw these desperate people, helped by other people from all over Belgium and Oh, surprise, no more masks, no more viruses, people in each other's arms ...
So, thanks again to Laura, Ark, the CS, the whole group and the forum.
It allowed me to grow, to understand what was happening to me in my personal life, and to be able to follow a path that is suitable for me, with all of you.
I hope that when the "times" change, we can all meet ...
One more thing about the word "Alamo" and poplar, and the balm of Gilead
Classic poplar has nothing to do with this plant
The balm of Galaad or Gilead is myrrh.
Myrrh is a resinous gum that oozes naturally from the trunk of the tree, from the Burceraceae family.
Gilead's Myrrh = Commiphora gileadensis (L.) C. Chr. Or Syn: Commiphora opobalsamum (L) Engl
English: Balessan.Balm-of-Gilead. Balsam. Balsam of Gilead. Balsam tree. Mecca myrrh.
Swedish: Afrikansk myrra. Meckabalsamträd. Somalimyrra.
Turkey: Mekke Balsam Agaci
It is a tree that can reach over 30 meters high.
The bark and buds are used as a deodorant for influenza, infections, etc.
Tenderness and courage to you all
