Joyous

“Jesus embraced His not enough… He gives thanks… and there is more than enough. More than enough. Eucharisteo always precedes the miracle. And who doesn’t need a miracle like that everyday? Thanksgiving makes time. The real problem of life is never a lack of time. The real problem of life – in my life – is lack of thanksgiving. Thanksgiving creates abundance; and the miracle of multiplying happens when I give thanks… it’s giving thanks to God for this moment that multiplies the moments, time made enough. I am thank-full. I am time-full. ”

– Ann Voskamp

 Complex

“Writing, the art of communicating thoughts to the mind through the eye, is the great invention of the world…enabling us to converse with the dead, the absent, and the unborn, at all distances of time and space.”

– Abraham Lincoln

Cautionary

“What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep or cows…”

– William Henry Davies
