John on Love

Italic Calligraphy of    John 14; 15-26    by Jeanne

My Holy Spirit

I believe the Holy Spirit is a comforter, counselor, advocate, minister and spirit of truth.
John 14:15-18
14:26
15:26
16:5-16

I believe that even God can’t know himself without his Holy Spirit.
So why would we symbolize Him as a bird, and more specifically as a dove?

Doves are the sheep of the bird world: gentle followers;
Devoted to their mates, for life; nesting in beaks;
Docile in sacrifice, roaming freely in clouds;
Glimmering silver and gold against the peaks.

Devoted to their mates, for life; nesting in beaks;
Loyal nurturers to young and to weak;
The patient, proud parents we seek.

Docile in sacrifice, roaming freely in clouds;
Transporting, transforming, ne’er loud.
But swiftly swelling, quiet and proud.

Glimmering silver and gold against the peaks;
Dazzling light, prism’s plumage;
Other worldly, other person, other lover!

Who is this Spirit?

HolySpirit

Minister of God’s Compassion
John 15:26-27, 14:15-18. 14:26, 16:5-16

I will send you the Comforter
He will come to you from the Father,
Tell you all about me;
He is the source of all truth.

He will come to you from the Father;
He’s been with me from the beginning:
Comforts you in doubt, despair and affliction.

Tell you all about me;
Gives you wisdom to examine your life
See past denial and self deception.

He is the source of all truth:
Reveals the teachings of Jesus,
Guides you to justice and truth.
