Have a little faith

August 16, 2010

P 44: Faith is about doing. You are how you act, not just how you believe.

P 45: My grandparents did these things. My parents, too. If I take the pattern and throw it out, what does that say about their lives? Or mine? From generation to generation, these rituals are how we remain....connected.

P 82: It is far more comforting to think God listened and said no, than to think that nobody's out there.

P 93: My friends, if we tend to the things that are important in life, if we are right with those we love and behave in line with our faith, our lives will not be cursed with the aching throb or unfulfilled business. Our words will always be sincere, our embraces will be tight. We will never wallow in the agony of 'I could have, I should have.' We can sleep in a storm. P 102: Be satisfied. Be grateful. For what you have. For the love you receive. And for what God has given you. (The secret to happiness)

P 129: This is why faith is so important. It is a rope for us all to grab, up and down the mountain. I may not be remembered in so many years. But what I believe and have taught- about God, about our tradition- that can go on. It comes from my parents and their parents before them. And if it stretches to my grandchildren and to their grandchildren, than we are all, you know...connected.

P 207: It's not me against the other guy. It's God measuring you against you.

P 221: When the world quiets to the sound of your own breathing, we all want the same things: comfort, love and a peaceful heart. P 247: Have you ever known a man of faith? Did you run the other way? If so, stop running. Maybe sit for a minute. For a glass of ice water. For a plate of corn bread. You may find there is something beautiful to learn, and it doesn't bite you and it doesn't weaken you, it only proves a divine spark lies inside each of us, and that spark may one day save the world.
