I am only one, but I am one;
I cannot do everything
But I can do something.
What I can do, I ought to do
And what I ought to do
By the grace of God, I will do.
Did you ever just suddenly get the impulse to tell someone how awesome you really think they are? That’s my life; That’s how I feel most times of the day.
For most of my adult life, I’ve heard people complaining that the only thing that separates man from animals is that we’re conscious of our own eminent death. But I’m saying forget that. I’m here to say that what separates humans from animals is not the fact that we know that we’re going to die, but the absolute truth that we’re so conscious of the fact that we’re alive. We see, feel, touch, and smell, we have feelings, and feelings about those feelings, we care about people around us and want to be loved and held and cared for. We are so aware of the life in us, that it is impossible for someone who has faith to be pessimistic about the world around them. We can always see hope in life, love in hope, and life in love. Or at least we can always keep trying to see it. Not just for ourselves, but for our brothers, sisters, and children, and for every other living creature on this planet.
