A soul is the more dependent on grace, the higher the perfection to which it aspires; and the grace of GOD is the more needful for each moment, as without it the soul can do nothing. The world, the flesh, and the devil join forces and assault the soul so straitly and so untiringly that, without humble reliance on the ever-present aid of GOD, they drag the soul down in spite of all resistance. Thus to rely seems hard to nature, but grace makes it become easy, and brings with it joy.

fun with words

My mom actually introduced me to this site months and months ago: It is so fun and addicting! You can paste any selection of text into the wordle machine, and it generates a fun, artistic rendering of those words! The only downside is that you can't save your wordles...but you can post them to the public gallery.

Check this out. Here is my wordle of this blog:
