“Never forget…

…justice is what love looks like in public.
– Cornel West


“The problems facing the world today are immense. This is not a time for incremental thinking. If a cause is worth devoting your time to, then you owe it to yourself – and those you will serve – to think in a big way.”

– John Wood.

“I’ll fight to the very end!!”

“While women weep, as they do now,
I’ll fight;
while little children go hungry, as they do now,
I’ll fight;
while men go to prison, in and out, in and out, as they do now,
I’ll fight;
while there is a drunkard left, while there is a poor lost girl upon the streets…
I’ll fight –
I’ll fight to the very end!!”

[ William Booth (founder) ]

Thank God for the Salvos. I am a big fan.

Something I heard…

Most of us spend our lives climbing a ladder to reach the top, only to find that it’s against the wrong wall.

– Jarrod McKenna

Whispering hope

random rambling:So I committed myself to a self-imposed hermit-like existence this week in the hope of getting my assignments and exam study done.

The frustrating thing about feeling so sick all the time is having such limited energy and having to choose between things….say…people, or passing uni.

And it’s got me a little frustrated.

Because if people…relationships, caring, laughing, reaching out, connecting, all that jazz…really are the most important thing in life…than isn’t that worth investing more time and energy into than anything else?

So much brokenness. Everywhere. So much need.

As Mother Teresa said, “There is more hunger for love and appreciation in this world than for bread.”

So if I’m sick….and only have limited strength…am I really investing that energy and effort into what matters in terms of living a life that counts?

Sure I want a uni degree and I want to be able to help people in useful ways. And writing essay after essay would be fine if it didn’t take everything that i have at the moment…but I just end up with nothing left for people…hmm….man I want my health back.

I leave you with this picture. I like it. My heart….is to find the people that need it….and gently whisper hope.
