Why the Tree of Life?

Hovering

I just found this quote that I really like from a 20th century Friend, Rufus Jones:

“Something of God comes into our world with every child that is born. There is here with the newborn child a divine spark, a light within.”

What is Ayla looking and smiling and laughing at over my shoulder or across the room? I can't help but feel that her soul is hovering between our world and somewhere else entirely.

  1. Yes, and my son saw my husband's deceased wife as a baby. We heard her laughing as she left our side. She could never have children and it was a joy that she had awaited. I know she came to see him and her laughter was clear to the ear. My son often played with someone over my shoulder. I know who it was.
