Seeds of Strength

Seeds of Strength, originally uploaded by colbyh. We can do no great things, only small things withgreat love. ~Mother Teresa

Like a wildflower, I grow fast and free, but I bend beneath the slightest breeze.
I always wonder but never see that where I am is where I’m supposed to be. 
Sometimes I feel my folly: I’m the poison of a weed.  But from there the wind will carry me and plant another seed.  Lonesome by the highway, or in the shade of a tree, I’ve found that where I go is not up to me.  It is the Lord – the Spirit, Breath, and Life in me. He’s the wind. He carries me.
- author TBC, via Claire

Love (Evol)ution

Eoin and Shelia's wedding, originally uploaded by Michelle in Ireland. “Love is not a feeling. Love is an action, an activity. Genuine love implies commitment and the exercise of wisdom, love as the will to extend oneself for the purpose of nurturing one's own or another's spiritual growth...true love is an act of will that often transcends ephemeral feelings of love or cathexis, it is correct to say, 'Love is as love does'.” -M. Scott Peck
