A sense of certainty

We say, then, to anyone who is under trial, give Him time to steep the soul in His eternal truth. Go into the open air, look up into the depths of the sky, or out upon the wideness of the sea, or on the strength of the hills that is His also; or, if bound in the body, go forth in the spirit; spirit is not bound. Give Him time and, as surely as dawn follows night, there will break upon the heart a sense of certainty that cannot be shaken.

I just want to say

...that my guy is so awesome. We went for a walk last night and my flip flop broke when we were coming back. He offered me his shoes. I didn't really think they would fit so I declined. Know what he did then? He took off his shoes and socks and "suffered," as he calls it, right along with me. :) I love that guy they call David Wehr.

Morally right

The world has enough women who know how to be smart. It needs women who are willing to be simple. The world has enough women who know how to be brilliant. It needs some who will be brave. The world has enough women who are popular. It needs more who are pure. We need women, and men, too, who would rather be morally right than socially correct."
