"Once a man was asked, 'what did you gain by regularly praying to God?' The man replied, 'nothing...but let me tell you what I lost: Anger, ego, greed, depression, insecurity, and fear of death.' Sometimes, the answer to our prayers is not gaining but losing; which ultimately is the gain."
"I have found that if you love life, life will love you back."
Don't even try. The epic fail is when you wander off your center to please those on the right and those on the left. It never works. May you be blessed to stay true to yourself and true to God, who loves you just the way you are.
Yes, I am like a tree.
