God’s treasure…is like an infinite ocean…yet a little wave of feeling, passing with the moment, contents us…when He finds a soul permeated with a living faith, He pours into it His graces and His favours plenteously…into the soul they flow like a torrent.” – Conversations and Letters of Brother Lawrence (June 1, 1682)

We all love to take pictures of our children.
Pictures are snapshots in time of what our children looked like at a certain age or an image marking a significant event like a birth, the day they took their first steps, hitting their first homerun, a graduation, or their wedding day.
Pictures are static or in other words, moments frozen in time.
Last weekend we experienced a first.
On Saturday we did a few things around the house, went to the mall, and decided to take in a movie for a change of pace.
Exodus: God and Kings had opened the night before and it sparked an interest in me to see it.
Forces beyond your control can take away everything you possess except one thing – your freedom to choose how you will respond to the situation. You cannot control what happens to you in life, but you can always control what you will feel and do about what happens to you.” – Viktor E. Frankl, Nazi death camp survivor
