The sad and devastating news of fire burning Notre Dame I think of words
I wrote a long time ago when face with loss from fire. "Out of the
ashes the Phoenix rises ever to be reborn"
The phoenix is a mythical
bird with fiery plumage near the end of its life, it settles in to its
nest of twigs which then burns ferociously, reducing bird and nest to
ashes. from those ashes, a fledgling phoenix rises – renewed and reborn.
So too perhaps with rebuilding of this beautiful structure.
I like to believe that after 850 years of standing she can only come back more beautiful in structure giving France and the rest of the world renewed sense of faith. I'm don't usually post religious content but these words from Isiah 40:8 are always with methough I have changed a few words The grass withers
and the flowers fade,but the symbols of God stands forever.
