A bridge of silver wings stretches from the dead ashes of an unforgiving nightmare
to the jeweled vision of a life started anew.

An Easter Flower Gift

O dearest bloom the seasons know,
Flowers of the Resurrection blow,
Our hope and faith restore;
And through the bitterness of death
And loss and sorrow, breathe and breath
Of life forevermore!
The thought of Love Immortal blends
With fond remembrances of friends;
In you, O sacred flowers,
By human love made doubly sweet,
The heavenly and the earthly meet,
The heart of Christ is ours!
~ John Greenleaf Whittier
Don't forget to join us every day at 5pm as we pause to pray and send our healing energies where they are most needed right now

Calling all ISD Energy Healers and Prayer Warriors

A message from Jo Ann Wormuth:
Our thoughts have great power. When we focus those thoughts in a group consciousness with a singular intention, miracles will happen.
As Director of the ISD Healing Program, I am seeking volunteers to come together as a family with a daily healing and prayer.
We will set an intention to transmute COVID 19 worldwide, pray for the well-being of our dear Mother Earth, and send healing to our friends and family members.
Each day at 5 PM EST, we will pause for about 10 minutes and meditate and pray with the intention of sending healing energy to all.
You do not have to be present each day. Requests for healing or suggestions should be submitted at the below ISD website l ink:
