Fog is dripping over the hill.  Life as we know it here returns.

Though all is well with me personally, there are so many problems in the world that I rest this morning in these words.



Nothing that is worth doing can be achieved in our lifetime;
therefore, we must be saved by hope.

Nothing which is true or beautiful or good makes complete sense
in any immediate context of history;
therefore, we must be saved by faith.

Nothing we do, however virtuous, can be accomplished alone;
therefore we are saved by love.


~ Reinhold Niebuhr ~
