calls them on into life

Mr DeMile, I'm ready for my close up.


“The living can't quit living because the world has turned terrible and people they love and need are killed. They can't because they don't. The light that shines into darkness and never goes out calls them on into life. It calls them back again into the great room. It calls them into their bodies and into the world, into whatever the world will require. It calls them into work and pleasure, goodness and beauty, and the company of other loved ones.” 
~Wendell Berry

  1. If we walk in the light as He is in the light we have fellowship with one another.

    I am thankful for that light

    Comforting words after a senseless tragedy in my city yesterday. In fact, I will copy and paste them to my facebook, Please pray for Metro Police and another unnamed victim's family.
