Our past is a home we hardly ever leave…

"I am a bad boy! But I am just a bad boy in cotton…not in leather!"
"never give up until you accomplish what you want
and if it is good, any amount of pain is worth going through"
Ron and Kathy
"love conquers all, love transcends all
even the wall of separation made by death"
"it is the living that create walls not the dead"
Ron and Kathy
thanks for the lyrics…friend
And I could cry for the time I’ve wasted … but that’s a waste of time and tears … and I know just what I’d change if I went back in time somehow … but there’s nothing I can do about it now.
I’m forgiving everything that forgiveness will allow … and there’s nothing I can do about it now
"New seed is faithful. It roots deepest in the places that are empty."
C.P.Estes– The Faithful Gardener
"…God likes a partership. It is up to us to help what God has begun. No one wants this kind of burning, this kind of fire. We want the field to remain as it once was, in its pristine beauty, just as we want life to reamin as it once was.
But fire comes. Though we are afraid, it comes anyway, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose, sometimes for reasons that no one can understand–reasons that are God’s business alone.
But the fire can also turn everything to a new direction, a new and different life, one that has its own strengths and ways to shape the world."
C.P. Estes– The Faithful Gardener
"Because each had discovered years before that they were neither white noor male, and that all freedom and triumph was forbidden to them, they had set about creating something else to be."
Toni Morrison Sula
Too slow for those who Wait,
Too swift for those who Fear,
Too long for those who Grieve,
Too short for those who Rejoice,
But for those who Love
Time is not."

"By then I knew that everything good and bad left
an emptiness when it stopped. But if it was bad, the emptiness
filled up by itself.
it was good you could only fill it by finding something better."

"The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities."
"It’s probably better to have him inside the tent pissing out, than outside the tent pissing in."
Lyndon B. Johnson
