Contemplations

“If the road is easy, you’re likely going the wrong way.” ― Terry Goodkind

I don’t have a lot to say today. I just found these two things and they made me think.

I was reading C.S. Lewis this morning. I came across this quote. I hope you like it as much as I did.

“Imagine yourself as a living house. God comes in to rebuild that house. At first, perhaps, you can understand what He is doing. He is getting the drains right and stopping the leaks in the roof and so on; you knew that those jobs needed doing and so you are not surprised. But presently He starts knocking the house about in a way that hurts abominably and does not seem to make any sense. What on earth is He up to? The explanation is that He is building quite a different house from the one you thought of – throwing out a new wing here, putting on an extra floor there, running up towers, making courtyards. You thought you were being made into a decent little cottage: but He is building a palace. He intends to come and live in it Himself.”
C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

And this TED talk that I need to watch. A talk by Aimee Mullins, actress, model, athlete, and amputee. It’s 20 minutes, but worth it when you have the time.

Aimee Mullins: The opportunity of adversity

Have a great week everyone!
