Heart Happy

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 ~
