“Great men are they who see that spiritual is stronger than material force, that thoughts rule the world.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson
Today I was talking to a friend and colleague who lives in Boulder Colorado. She was sharing the volunteer work she was doing in support of the many people who lost so much during the recent fire. With more than $8 million of losses, it has been called the most destructive wildfire in Colorado’s history.

Faith and love are forces more powerful than any material destruction that we can experience. After it is all over, they will endure. In light of the ever increasing challenges we face in the world, knowing this truth and that goodness is everywhere you look is more than solace. It is a life direction. It is the solution.
