she will hear her heart, saying,

that God planted in your days?
What have you done with the talents
God bestowed on you?"

for the invitation to share.
It also means being prepared for my friend to say,
"No." They don't want to know.
- Mary Anne Radmacher

that what is the need to look back again and again?
He never looks ahead, he never looks back, he lives in the moment.

because you are doing something against nature.
