Happy Birthday Ernie ...

Ernest Isaiah Newton
Happy 12Th Birthday
Love is a symbol of eternity
It wipes out all sense of time
destroying all memory of a beginning
and all fear
of an end

"I looked at the caged animals in the shelter ... The cast offs of human society.
I saw in their eyes, love and hope, fear and dread, sadness and betrayal.
And I was angry. "God" I said, "Why don't you do something?".
God was silent for a moment and then He spoke softly.
"I have done something" he replied
"I created you"
~Jim Willis~
