cold Philadelphia

I know now that I cannot find the same simple writing comforts so readily accessible in Dallas. Though I really enjoy Philadelphia, I have not been able to find that place where I speak so freely as chance has given me in Dallas. So I offer you a selection from a man I admire and respect, whose writings I find to be quite wonderful and this particular quote most closely echos a recent thought process of mine-
"It may be possible for each to think too much of his own potential glory hearafter; it is hardly possible for him to think too often or too deeply about that of his neighbor. The load, or weight, or burden of my neighbour's glory should be laid on my back, a load so heavy that only humility can carry it, and the backs of the proud will be broken." -C.S. Lewis


  1. Wow, excellent quote. I really liked this.

  2. And as I heard my pastor say yesterday...
    "We would do well to be less concerned about identifying our gifts and be more concerned with being a gift."
    I loved that - God made me a gift and I should be more willing to invest in the people around me. That is an investment that of a greater eternal treasure...someone else's glory over mine.
