So much of our life is spent in a state of disconnection – with little sense of how we are cradled in the hands of our creator. Only tiny pockets of people are able to grasp and live with the knowledge we are constantly surrounded with love. Deeply buried within us is the connection we search for, if we are able to open our minds and look.
