“Here’s to all the people who get back up more times than they are knocked down, who give more than they ever expect to receive, who still show love to others, even when their own heart is broken, who smile through the sad times, who light the way for others, who spread laughter and joy. Thank you for making the world a better place.”—(via enj0yitwhileyoucan)
One of his central themes was that of the practical implications of ubuntu – a difficult concept to translate properly. Tutu offers this definition of the concept in his book: “I am what I am because of who we all are.” He goes on to state that “Our humanity is caught up in that of all others. We are human because we belong. We are made for community, for togetherness, for family, to exist in a delicate network of interdependence.” It is crucial for us, as leaders – and humans, to have a deep understanding of this and practice it in our daily lives.
God keeps reminding me of what He has already done. He’s been asking me to remember the works of His hands specific to my story of His love! I am anticipating hat God will do with all this remembering. Hopefully though I will honor Him with gratitude and a content heart from these re-revelations.
“Girls are like apples…the best ones are at the top of the trees. The boys don’t want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they just get the rotten apples that are on the ground that aren’t as good, but easy. So the apples at the top think there is something wrong with them, when, in reality, they are amazing. They just have to wait for the right boy to come along, the one who’s brave enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree…”—Pete Wentz (via equanimities)
You guys, I got sick today and it’s getting worse so fast. I always get sick once for the year and never again until the next year! That’s the good thing! But I’m feeling terrible! 😞👎 Any home remedies for colds and such?
2/26. Better than completing forgetting about my blog-alphabet. I chose Beauty today by taking care of my body first, then going out into the world and choosing to see beauty in the everyday things in life. I just love watching old couples giggle…see a mother examining fruit for her child to eat while patiently doting on them…seeing a barista rock out a tall nonfat, no whip, mocha…editing curriculum that will bring new thoughts to desperate hearts…life is so beautiful. Years ago I watched this Italian movie called ‘Life is Beautiful.’ It was about this concentration camp where a father hid his son so he could live. Such a sad, yet beautiful film. And yet, we walk by beautiful things every day in situations in which it should be easy to embrace them, learn from them, be content in them. Lord, renew my mind to remember contently the beauty You have placed around me. Amen!
