"For helping me find rainbows
after the storm,
for showing me that dreams
can come true,
for sharing love in ways
only a mother can,
thanks, Mom
Happy Mother's Day"

  • For helping me find rainbows
    after the storm,

    • There is none,
       In all this cold and hollow world, no fount
       Of deep, strong, deathless love, save that within
       A mother's heart.

  • To quickly lay out new documents, you can save a set of masters in a document template, along with paragraph and character styles, color libraries, and other styles and presets.
  • If you change column or margin settings on a master, or apply a new master with different column and margin settings, you can force objects on the page to adjust to the new layout automatically.

  • The flow of water carves rock, a little bit at a time. And our personhood is carved, too, by the flow of our habits.

  • THE problem with accepting — with preferring — diminished substitutes is that over time, we, too, become diminished substitutes. People who become used to saying little become used to feeling little.
  • We often use technology to save time, but increasingly, it either takes the saved time along with it, or makes the saved time less present, intimate and rich.

  • you can't say you are doing them because you are trying to follow Jesus' example.
  • Jesus was constantly including people and he did it with a radical disregard for their religion.
  • There was even this one time when he used a hated Samaritan as an example of how we are supposed to take care of each other.
