What Keeps You Alive?

God does not die on that day when we cease to believe in a personal deity, but we die when our lives cease to be illuminated by the steady radiance, renewed daily, of a wonder, the source of which is beyond all reasoning.

Dag Hammarskjold, (1905-1961) Swedish political leader and Secretary General of The United Nations.

This is beautifulquote. I’ve been trying to change my view of life from that of a journey of marked by acquisition to a school for my soul. What keeps me alive so to speak is the drive to learn this life’s lesssons. When I return to God in my true nature as that of an eternal soul, I want to be able to say or hear that I have in fact learned the lessons of love, compassion and forgiveness.>

What always reminds me of God is the finches I feed in my back yard. I buy “socks’ filled with thistle seed & hang them everywhere (on the deck in winter–they’re too messy in summer). I just washed & sewed a hole up in a couple & refilled them yesterday. Anyway, HOW do they know when to get drab dreary colors (in fall) & get bright & colorful in the spring?? Same with the “March of the Penguins” movie–who “programs” these birds to do this?!! GOD, of course!! Deb Ramage>

I will remember that quote for always. Another saying I have read is that God does not leave us, we leave God.That makes God so real to me. Knowing that God is alive and well, and loves me no matter what keeps me alive. I “talk” to him just like a friend, and that way he is more personal to me.>
