To love and be loved

We have not come into the world to be numbered; we have been created for a purpose; for great things: to love and be loved.

--Mother Teresa


  1. Mother Teresa - so simple and beautiful in speaking of the value of each human person.

  2. This thought kind of puts King David's census sin into an interesting perspective, viewing people as parts of a military machine rather than as children of God to be served and loved. When he repents, he sees them as sheep (to be gently tended) and he, the shepherd is the guilty one. Very interesting.

  3. A little different perspective than the English teacher's recent commencement speech telling the grads...none of them are special.
    Love Mother Theresa...+

  4. Thank you all for your lovely comments, dear friends; it is such a joy to read them, and I appreciate it so very much that you take the time to write to me. May Almighty God bless you and your loved ones.
