“When we come to the end of all the light there is and we face nothing but the darkness, we must trust that one of two things will happen: either we will have something firm to stand on, or we will be learn how to fly.”
We love this quote. I came across this quote as I was waiting for a job interview. I was not feeling at the top of my game and this quote gave me the the boost I needed. I have suggested it to so many people as a note of encouragment. We hope it is helpful to you. The research of who wrote the quote lead me to Edward Teller as the reported author.
Enjoy. Charlie and Cheryl Cavalconte
We share our planet with about 7 billion other people, and for about 2.4 billion Christians, this week is the celebration of Christmas. And if all the joys and feelings of Christmas are not enough, there are thousands, if not millions, of couples worldwide who, in the next few days would have said those very special words, in hundreds of different languages, that will move them from friends and lovers to engaged.
Engaged, that most wonderful awkward place of nerves and sweaty palms and bended knee, (yes, a lot of people still do that) of asking, hoping, surrendering, of saying yes, of being received, and thus changing the course of the history of your life as an individual, your lives as a couple, the lives of your families and thus the history of the human race. The place of planning and hoping, the place where you, your love and your coupleness stand up and say to the world: here we are in love and we want to share our love with each other, and our togetherness with the world forever! What better gift is there than that?
May the joy of this holiday spill forth from your hearts and fill the world with love, joy and peace.
