Only By Addition

“The past is

our definition.

We may strive

with good reason

to escape it

or to escape what

is bad in it

but we will escape it

only by adding something better to it.

.

~ Wendell Berry

.

What is better in one’s life are the positive feelings

one attains by doing the will of a loving Higher Power:

being kind, loving, patient and tolerant,

compassionate and forgiving.

We can never wish away those events of the past,

we can only strive to make today a day that is

never worth forgetting.

Life is adding something better each day.

Life is living and loving in the here and now.

The Thin Thread of Faith

012

.

“Some nights in the

midst of this loneliness

I swung among

the scattered stars

at the end of the

thin thread of faith

alone.”

.

~ Wendell Berry
.

Happy is the soul that knows he is never alone,

that God is always with us.

Reach out for those stars and know that God

has employed them to demonstrate his omnipotence.

Hang in there, God always gives this earth another day

another tomorrow in which we may try again

to be the best person he wants us to be.

Happiness is knowing that God

is holding the other end

of that thin thread of faith.

Happiness is helping someone help themselves.
