In a little wrath I hid my face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee, saith the Lord thy Redeemer. —Isaiah 54:8
We can never afford to be cruel or indifferent or ungenerous because we are all connected, even if it is in a pattern that only God sees. —Chieko N. Okazaki
