enjoy the world

     I have a friend who, by her own admission, isn’t great at anything, as most people see greatness. She doesn’t make a lot of money or have a fancy resume or do glamorous things. She isn’t famous, and she isn’t powerful. She isn’t a lot of things that a lot of us want to be.

     I have watched her for a long time. I have seen that she is great at one thing, and it’s the only thing that really matters: she loves much.

     I guess that’s why she enjoys much.

“You never enjoy the world aright . . . till you love men so as to desire their happiness, with a thirst equal to the zeal of your own. . . .” Thomas Traherne

“[F]or she loved much.” Luke 7:47
