Read this in my most-recently-finished book, 2/3 of which I enjoyed (I hated the ending) --
"To be still is to be stupid. To be stupid is to die'. And so we shall LIVE
" - from Special Topics in Calamity Physics, Marisha Pessl.
To be still... So don't be still. I think I've said this before - one thing that makes me very sad is when someone talented, blessed, in the position to do so much good, just does NOTHING. Nothing to help, nothing to improve things for others, doesn't share his/her gifts and use these in a way that honors the Source of all.Service
: This is something I really believe in. This is what keeps me moving, gives me strength in the morning - my belief in what I can do, and my need to at least try my best to live in the way I think He would want me to.
Faith saves. It does. And I pray so much that God will help this very important person in my life to find faith again.
Yesterday's baby shower was a great success. I teared up when Sheila's mom was giving the prayer, because I realized that my barkada is about to have its first baby!
I'm so glad that Sheila had a good time. I hope baby boy in her tummy had an awesome time, too. I hope he feels how much he is already loved :)
By the way, it was an 80s theme party. :)
Being with you makes everything seem simpler. :)
