“In our sleep, pain which cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, until, in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom through the awful grace of God.”

“The mission, he thought, probably failed because of a series of logical, reasonable, carefully considered decisions, each of which seemed like a good idea at the time. Like most colossal disasters.”

-- Mary Doria Russell, The Sparrow

"Cheap grace is the grace we bestow on ourselves. Cheap grace is the preaching of forgiveness without requiring repentance, baptism without church discipline, Communion without confession…. Cheap grace is grace without discipleship, grace without the cross, grace without Jesus Christ, living and incarnate...
Costly grace is the gospel which must be sought again and again and again, the gift which must be asked for, the door at which a man must knock. Such grace is costly because it calls us to follow, and it is grace because it calls us to follow Jesus Christ. It is costly because it costs a man his life, and it is grace because it gives a man the only true life." --Dietrich Bonhoeffer, The Cost of Discipleship

"So for many years, nothing at all happened. It was a good system of government, because most people want nothing to happen. That is the problem with governments these days.

"People, in general, would rather die than forgive. It's that hard. If God said in plain language, "I'm giving you a choice, forgive or die," a lot of people would go ahead and order their coffin." - The Secret Life of Bees - Sue Monk Kid.

Ordinary riches can be stolen, real riches cannot. In your soul are infinitely precious things that cannot be taken from you. - Oscar Wilde

"How do we know what's right for us? Every shrink, every career counselor, every Disney princess knows the answer: "Be yourself." "Follow your heart." Only here's what I really, really want someone to explain to me. What if one happens to be possessed of a heart that can't be trusted--? What if the heart, for its own unfathomable reasons, leads one willfully and in a cloud of unspeakable radiance away from health, domesticity, civic responsibility and strong social connections and all the blandly-held common virtues and instead straight toward a beautiful flare of ruin, self-immolation, disaster?"--Donna Tartt, The Goldfinch

"The things we do outlast our mortality. The things we do are like monuments that people build to honor heroes after they've died. They're like the pyramids that the Egyptians built to honor the pharaohs. Only instead of being made of stone, they're made out of the memories people have of you.”

The best way to measure how much you've grown isn't by inches or the number of laps you can now run around the track, or even your grade point average-- though those things are important, to be sure.

“Passion is all very well, but it wouldn't do to spill the tea.”

“He had always assumed gossip to be the malicious whispering of uncomfortable truths not the fabrication of absurdities. How was one to protect oneself against people making up things? Was a life of careful impeccable behavior not enough in a world where inventions were passed around as fact”

"I think we wake up every day with high intentions and by dusk we have routinely fallen short. Sometimes I think God created the darkness just so he didn't have to look at us all the time.”

"We do what we can do and the rest is God's problem."

From Brother Odd, the 3rd Odd Thomas novel by Dean Koontz:

p. 105 "No offense intended, but my intuition is better than yours. ... Psychic magnetism isn't always reliable. Nothing is one hundred percent reliable this side of paradise, except that your cell-phone provider will never fulfill the service promises that you were naïve enough to believe."

p. 106 "The snowfall that I had welcomed the previous night, with my face turned to the sky and my mouth open as if I were a turkey, had been a pathetic production compared to the extravaganza of snow that befell the mountain now, a wide-screen storm as directed by Peter Jackson on steroids."

I thoroughly enjoy first person narratives when the speaker's voice is humorous, or self-reflective. Favorite examples are Harry Dresden (by Jim Butcher) and Mercy Thompson (by Patricia Briggs). Odd Thomas is not as wonderful a character as the storyteller in Koontz' The City (IMHO), but he is an entertaining narrator.

Blessed Be, Amanda

"I love myself the way I am, and still I want to grow;
But change outside can only come when deep inside I know:
I'm beautiful and capable of being the best me I can,
And I love myself just the way I am."

“Nothing haunts us like the things we don't say.”
― Mitch Albom, Have a Little Faith: a True Story


“A little girl came home from school with a drawing she'd made in class.She danced into the kitchen ,where her mother was preparing dinner.
"Mom,guess what ?" she squealed waving the drawing .
her mother never looked up.
"what"? she said ,tending to the pots.
"guess what?" the child repeated ,waving the drawings.
"what?" the mother said , tending to the plates.
"Mom, you're not listening"
"sweetie,yes I am"
"Mom" the child said "you're not listening with your EYES”

"You only have to forgive once. To resent, you have to do it all day, every day. You have to keep remembering all the bad things...I would have to make a list, a very, very long list and make sure I hated the people on it the right amount."

“Right and wrong can be like bloody snakes: so tangled up that you can't tell which is which until you've shot 'em both, and then it's too late.”

"...no point in fighting your war over and over until you get it right.”

"I've learned the hard way that to have any kind of a future you've got to give up hope of ever changing your past.”

“Stick to now. Put right the things you can put right today, and let the ones from back then go. Leave the rest to the angels, or the devil or whoever's in charge of it.”

“If the war had taught her anything, it was to take nothing for granted: that it wasn’t safe to put off what mattered. Life could snatch away the things you treasured, and there was no getting them back.”

"...the man who makes the journey has been shaped by every day and every person along the way. Scars are just another kind of memory....Soon enough the days will close over their lives, the grass will grow over their graves, until their story is just an unvisited headstone.”

M. L. Stedman, The Light Between Oceans

“People were buying milk, or filling their cars with petrol, or even posting letters. And what no one else knew was the appalling weight of the thing they were carrying inside.

I thought about what Ross said. We ought to get together. Like old times. I wondered if that was possible. I had always put a lot of stock in What Mr. Thomas Wolfe said about going home again, that you actually can't. That's why I had never left long enough to feel that home was anywhere else but Fort Kent. I'd seen what time had done to the emotions of many townspeople who spent their adult lives working in some city, waiting for the day that they could retire and come back north, maybe build a little camp on the banks of the river. But for a lot of them the years had changed things too drastically and the place they had loved so only existed in their old memories and yellowing photographs. It was as if they were trying to put on an outdated suit, one that had shrunk in the dryer. They can look at it and know it's their suit all right, but it just doesn't fit anymore.

It was on a dreary night of November that I beheld the accomplishment of my toils. With an anxiety that almost amounted to agony, I collected the instruments of life around me, that I might infuse a spark of being into the lifeless thing that lay at my feet. It was already one in the morning; the rain pattered dismally against the panes, and my candle was nearly burnt out, when, by the glimmer of the half-extinguished light, I saw the dull yellow eye of the creature open; it breathed hard, and a convulsive motion agitated its limbs.

“You don’t go on as much as you change direction. And which direction you take, that part’s up to you. One way leads to forgiveness and peace. The other leads down a road of bitterness. Can’t turn back from bitterness. Not very often, anyway.”
― Amy K. Sorrells, How Sweet the Sound


My name is Shari; I have been a Sparker since July 2006, I am now in hospice care for metastatic breast cancer, but I'm not letting cancer stop me from Sparking!

Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

A. A. Milne
