My favorite "quote" -it's actually a poem, and I love it.

This Work...

Exhilarating

And exhausting

Drives me up a wall

And opens doors I never imagined

Lays bare a wide range of emotions

Yet leaves me feeling numb beyond belief

Provides tremendous satisfaction

And leaves me feeling profoundly helpless

Evokes genuine empathy

And provokes a fearsome intolerance within me

Puts me in touch with deep suffering

And points me toward greater wholeness

Brings me face to face with many poverties

And enriches me encounter by encounter

Renews my hope

And leaves me grasping for faith

Enables me to envision a future

But with no ability to control it

Breaks me apart emotionally

And breaks me open spiritually

Leaves me wounded

And heals me.

-Ken Kraybill

"When I wake up in the morning, I want alarm bells to go off in Hell and the Devil to snarl, 'Oh, crap, she's awake!'"
I love this. I want to write it down and look at it every day to remind myself to strive to be a better person and Christian.

Keep em coming. I woke up pretty depressed today. This thread has let loose some sweet tears, and let out some great laughs. Just what I needed in this moment.
