I still find each day too short for all the
thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to
read, and all the friends I want to see. The longer I live the more my mind
dwells upon the beauty and the wonder of the world. ~John Burroughs~
Someone once asked Billy Graham, "If Christianity is valid, why is there so much evil in the world?" To this the famous preacher replied, "With so much soap, why are there so many dirty people in the world? Christianity, like soap, must be personally applied if it is to make a difference in our lives."
The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet...do not grasp at the stars, but do life's plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life.
