Our family is a circle of love,
Guided and directed from God above.
With every union and every birth,
Our circle grows with joy and mirth.
This love that flows so strong and deep,
Leaves us memories to treasure and keep.
And when a sadness comes along,
Our circle tightens, remaining strong.

My brothers, if this is the last sound made by the last living man, it must be shouted loud and clear.  Life is a gift of God.

We must be ready to allow ourselves to be interrupted by God.  God will be constantly crossing our paths and canceling our plans by sending us people, claims, and petitions.  We may pass them by, preoccupied with more important tasks . . .  When we do that, we pass by the visible sign of opportunity raised in our path to show us that, not our way, but God’s way must be done.  It is a strange fact that people frequently consider their work so important and urgent that they will allow nothing to disturb them.  They think they are doing God a service in this, but actually they are disdaining God’s ‘crooked yet straight path.’  But it is a part of the discipline of humility that we must not spare our hand where it can perform a service and that we do not assume that our schedule is our own to manage, but allow it to be arranged by God.

There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.
  —  Mahatma Gandhi
[Jesus is at our border…
Matthew 25: 42-44
42 For I was hungry and you gave Me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave Me nothing to drink,
43 I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, I was naked and you did not clothe Me, I was sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’
44 And they too will reply, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?’
There are people in the world so desperate for a chance to raise their families in peace, that Heaven cannot appear to them except in the form of the United States.  —  KMAB]

Even in sin, the act of love  – done with love –  is shadowed with divinity.  Its conformity may be at fault, but its nature is not altered, and its nature is creative, communicative, splendid in surrender.  It was in the splendor of my surrender to Nina and she to me, that I first understood how a man might surrender himself to God  – if a God existed.  The moment of love is a moment of union  – of body and spirit –  and the act of faith is mutual and implicit.
   ―  Morris L. West

To me, God and compassion are one and the same.  Compassion is the joy of sharing.  It’s doing small things for the love of each other – just a smile, or carrying a bucket of water, or showing some simple kindness.  These are the small things that make up compassion.
