Today has been a FANTASTIC day, and it’s not even 4 pm! I can’t say really point out anything in particular, just the fact that it’s been beautiful out! I really super love this weather, it’s my favorite–after a week or two of cold, cold weather, when it gets in the 50s. And this is not diffferent! There has not been a day in the last two weeks where there hasn’t been snow on the ground! Most of it is all melted, but the spots where there is snow makes me smile :) I decided that this is the kind of day that is the most romantic. I can’t really explain it, but every time there is this kind of weather, I think of love. Maybe it’s because it reminds me of how there in my life, there is a lot of cloudiness and rain–crappy weather in general. But then God does something that blows my mind, like opening up the skies and showing me some sunshine. And even though it might be temporary, for a while I can just glorify Him and not think of all the worries I have. Who knew that on January 18, it would be so pleasant out!
(PS–When the Lord gives me a man, I want him to propose to me on a day like today. Jus Sayin :) I wouldn’t want anything fancy, just to dance around in the sun, crunch a few leaves, and then vow my life to someone. bahaha! I’m cheesy).
BTW, today is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
Here are some quotes:
We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.
Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.
He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.
History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people.
I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.
I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made straight and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed and all flesh shall see it together.
I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
I submit to you that if a man hasn’t discovered something that he will die for, he isn’t fit to live.
Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and misguided men.
That old law about ‘an eye for an eye’ leaves everybody blind. The time is always right to do the right thing.
We may have all come on different ships, but we’re in the same boat now.
We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.
My top three heroes: Jesus, MLK, and Alberto Pujols. :)
