Our highest assurance of the goodness of Providence seems to me to rest in the flowers. All other things, our powers, our desires, our food, are all really necessary for our existence in the first instance. But this rose is an extra. It’s smell and it’s color are an embellishment of life, not a condition of it. It is only goodness which gives extras, and so I say again that we have much to hope from the flowers.
In the midst of the vagaries of life, they provide us a trip to the land of goodness and fairies, of imaginations and possibilities.
A childhood that wasn’t spent watching cartoons or reading comic strips, no wonder, seems too dull to imagine.
It is the little act of kindness that touches our heart and blossom our life with gladness.
If you find a need, reach out to help.
Hide yourself in God, so when a man wants to find you he will have to go there first.
How good would a Good Samaritan be, if a Good Samaritan would only intend to do good?
If you boil it down, just because someone else does the wrong thing we are not exempt from doing what’s right.
Because when everything is said and done… the world runs on kindness. It simply has to, or we’d never be a able to bear ourselves. It might not seem so to you now, but it will when you’re older.” ~Ariel
When God blesses you, the highest form of gratitude is open-handedness.
It’s good to see the snakes revealing themselves. They weren’t actually hidden at all. People hide behind the masks, but eventually you see them for who they truly are.
