Susan's Thoughts:: It is true that love is most important, but a working brain is also on the short list of highly valuable assets, whether used to help yourself or others. You don't have to choose between intelligence and affection/kindness.


Our understanding of life grows in ironic soil. We know happiness best after experiencing sadness. We value a presence the most in its absence. We remember the peace of silence when it is noisy and appreciate the vibrancy of noise in silence. We appreciate what we had the most when it is gone.
(I am paraphrasing several statuses with this one)

"What you are is a complicated girl with simple needs. You need your books and time to read, and you need a few friends and someone - not to take care of you but to care for you. If you have all those things, you'll always be alright."

Yep! Show respect and kindness to friends, family, strangers, and even enemies (though the active kindness part has to be done with caution/wisdom.) Christ calls us to love our neighbors, just as Christ first loved us. Not one of us deserved such grace before His cleansing, healing, & redemption, so let us show what grace and mercy we safely can to those in our lives. (This doesn't mean you can't defend yourself from those who would hurt you.)  (photo below) from
