“In any case, you must remember, my dearest,
that the main strength of innocence is innocence itself.”
“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. He to whom the emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand wrapped in awe, is as good as dead —his eyes are closed. The insight into the mystery of life, coupled though it be with fear, has also given rise to religion. To know what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty, which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their most primitive forms—this knowledge, this feeling is at the center of true religiousness.”
(an alert fawn in the backyard / Julie Cook / 2016)
It is now time that we all just stop for a moment.
Time to stop with all the…
malice and ill intent.
It is time to stop the…
the accusatory nonsense…
It is time we stop just long enough….
Just long enough to remember…
to remember and recall that there is still a world…
a world where we can find…
A world still full of the…
and the loving…
A world where God’s Grace still remains…
Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. 9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
2 Corinthians 8-10
