78/365 - Luck in Life (Mother Teresa)

“God made the world for the delight of human beings-- 
if we could see His goodness everywhere,
 His concern for us, 
His awareness of our needs: 
the phone call we've waited for,
 the ride we are offered,
 the letter in the mail, 
just the little things He does for us throughout the day.

 As we remember and notice His love for us, 
we just begin to fall in love with Him 
because He is so busy with us --
 you just can't resist Him. 

I believe there's no such thing as luck in life, 
it's God's love, it's His.”

  - Mother Teresa
(A Simple Path: Mother Teresa)

68/365 - The only cure for loneliness (Mother Teresa)

“The greatest disease in the West today is not TB or leprosy;
 it is being unwanted, unloved, and uncared for.

 We can cure physical diseases with medicine, 
but the only cure for loneliness, 
despair, and hopelessness
  is love.

 There are many in the world who are dying
 for a piece of bread 
but there are many more dying for a little love.

 The poverty in the West is a different kind of poverty -
 it is not only a poverty of loneliness
 but also of spirituality. 

There's a hunger for love,
 as there is a hunger for God.”

- Mother Teresa
 (A Simple Path: Mother Teresa)

65/365 - The Beauty of the Earth (Rachel Carson)

“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth 
find reserves of strength 
 that will endure as long as life lasts. 

There is something infinitely healing
in the repeated refrains of nature -- 
the assurance that dawn comes after night, 
and spring after winter.”

  - Rachel Carson
(Silent Spring)

64/365 - Loyalty to who I am (Jarod Kintz)

“Just because I liked something at one point in time
 doesn’t mean I’ll always like it, 
or that I have to go on liking it at all points in time 
as an unthinking act of loyalty to who I am as a person, 
based solely on who I was as a person.

 To be loyal to myself
 is to allow myself to grow and change, 
and challenge who I am and what I think.

 The only thing I am for sure is unsure, 
and this means I’m growing, 
and not stagnant or shrinking. 

  - Jarod Kintz

Because it might be.

At some point, tomorrow will be better.”
