Have you ever thought God far away? Jesus on the cross, dead and gone? I did. Until the Word lit and this hit: "He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, who believed in His name, to them He gave the right to become children of God." And I became His.

Hi, I'm Jo Ann Alo. I'm glad you're here—because Love has blessed me with the practice of writing and sharing it puts His love into practice.

Studying scripture caused a sequoia of questions. Pulling verses apart, I tried putting God in order. Lo and behold...He restores my soul. Like seedlings into saplings into fruit bearing trees, the everlivin' word transforms us into the likeness of His everlovin' Son.

From the first Psalm I understood God differently. "You shall be like a tree planted by streams of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever you do shall prosper." The Teacher uses creation like His chalkboard. Attending His class is what I love doing most. Day Unto Day is where I take notes. I'd love to hear some of yours.

"Since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made." The breathtaking beauty of what has been made utters the Breath of Life. Open the door with me and breathe in the fresh air of God's extravagant love, stilling peace, and stunning grace.

Make yourself at home. Let's compare notes! Enjoy some photos from my view. Maybe some poetry for you? Stay as long as you like—you are welcome here.
