For the Lord God is a sun and a shield. The Lord will give grace and glory. He withholds no good thing from those walk blamelessly. – Book of Psalms 84:11
“Now I am in the place I call this wide wide Heaven because it includes all my simplest desires but also the most humble and grand. The word my grandfather uses is comfort .
So there are cakes and pillows and colors galore, but underneath this more obvious patchwork quilt are places like a quiet room where you can go and hold someones hand and not have to say anything. Give no story. Make no claim. Where you can live at the edge of your skin for as long as you wish. This wide wide Heaven is about flathead nails and the soft down of new leaves, wild roller coaster rides and escaped marbles that fall then hang then take you somewhere you could never have imagined in your small-heaven dreams.” – The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold
To compare yourself with another is a taxing and futile pursuit. No two persons are absolutely the same even if they have the same experiences, the same circumstances. A person should only compare himself to his own – who he was and who he shall be.
