Behind Before Within

A  L  O  H  A !

"What lies behind us 
and what lies before us 
are tiny matters 
compared to what 
lies within us." 
                            Ralph Waldo Emerson 

Nativity Of Christ Greek Orthodox Christian Church

"There are things 
we can only 
learn in struggle."
                   Joel Osteen

"Follow that will 
and that way which 
experience confirms 
to be your own."
                  Carl Gustav Jung

“Friendship is 
the hardest thing 
in the world 
to explain. 
It's not something 
you learn in school. -

- But if you haven't learned 
the meaning of friendship, 
you really haven't
learned anything.” 
                  Muhammad Ali

“Rivers, ponds,
 lakes and streams — 
they all have different names, 
but they all contain water. 
Just as religions do — 
they all contain truths” 
                                        Muhammad Ali

Ahhhhhhhh, love these. A very nice tribute quote from Mohamed Ali. He was very popular in my family when I was a young girl in England. My parents thought he was the tops.

There are elements of the orthodox church that remind me of one that I was in yesterday for our Doors Open.

While Ali's death was not unexpected, still, it comes across as a shock. A great and a good man.

Beautiful church. Is this in Marin County, CA? Have you been to San Francisco Theological Seminary there? Their chapel and library are wonderful examples or architecture.
