"We know we are shining though we cannot see one another."
"Thank you, God, for this good life and forgive us if we do not love it enough."
"And he said unto me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness." So I shall boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. Therefore I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities for the sake of Christ; for whenever I am weak, then I am strong."
--II CORINTHIANS 12:9-10
