How do you spell "love"?

Here's some good advice that I read today:
Before you get up in the morning and rush into your day, pause and pray: "Lord, don't let me waste this day. Whether or not I get anything else done, help me to spend today loving You and loving others - because that's what your Word says life is all about."

The best way to spell "love" is T-I-M-E! Spend quality time with those you love, give them your focused attention!

I haven't posted for a while. One reason is that my laptop is broken, so I can't sit in my undisturbed creative space that much. Another one is that I have had things to do that were even more important than the blog, so I didn't have time for this.
I have another post in the works now, though, and I'll also be reviewing another book soon: The Thinking Toolbox.

Quote: God helps those who help themselves?!?

"Three quarters of Americans believe the Bible teaches that 'God helps those who help themselves.' That is, three out of four Americans believe that this uber-American idea, a notion at the core of our current individualist politics and culture, which was in fact uttered by Ben Franklin, actually appears in Holy Scripture. The thing is, not only is Franklin's wisdom not biblical; it's counter-biblical. Few ideas could be further from the gospel message, with its radical summons to love of neighbor."

- Author Bill McKibben, in his Harper's magazine essay, "The Christian Paradox"
