Thought(s) For the Week : On Faith, Religion & Love

On this Christmas 2015 Weekend in the United States,  we wanted to share these series of thoughts from +Jonathan Huie that underscores a sense of faith and hopefulness that is critical for us to succeed:

When the solution is simple, God is answering.
- Albert Einstein

The best way to obtain truth and wisdom is not to ask from books,
but to go to God in prayer, and obtain divine teaching.
- Joseph Smith, Jr.

Who rises from prayer a better man, his prayer is answered.
- George Meredith

As we reflected upon this, we also were reminded of this from Ibn Arabia:

A garden among the flames

O Marvel, 
a garden among the flames!

My heart can take on 
any form: 
a meadow for gazelles, 
a cloister for monks,

For the idols, sacred ground, 
Ka'ba for the circling pilgrim, 
the tables of the Torah, 
the scrolls of the Qur'án.

I profess the religion of love; 
wherever its caravan turns along the way, 
that is the belief, 
the faith I keep.

Onward to 2016 with all its' possibilities
