About meMy Favorite Quotes:

"We tell ourselves that religion and reason are incompatible, but in fact the opposite is the case. It was Christianity and the Hebrew Bible that gave us our concepts of reason, progress and an orderly world--the foundations of science and modernity."
Melanie Phillips

"The supreme function of reason is to show man that some things are beyond reason."
Blaise Pascal

"Faith and reason are like two wings on which the human spirit rises to the contemplation of truth."
John Paul II

"Faith without reason gives rise to fundamentalism. Reason without faith produces a secularism that cannot address the most fundamental human questions about origin, destiny and meaning."
Raymond de Souza

About my libraryMostly Christian books, classic fiction, history and biography.

Gifts of True Understanding

We Do Not Truly Understand...

Joy... until we face sorrow.

Faith... until it is tested.

Peace... until faced with conflict.

Trust... until we are betrayed.

Love... until it is lost.

Hope... until confronted with doubts.
Then when faced with these things, we arrive at a place deeper than mental understanding. It is a place called experience.

Experience then brings knowing...

... and we come to know joy, faith, peace, trust, love, and hope beyond all doubt.

Then we can share these blessings as the most valuable gifts we have to give.
