  1. Hi Bob ~~ A quote from my Sunday School lesson this morning for my 1st and 2nd graders on understanding...

    The memory verse was

    "Help me understand Your instruction, and I will obey it!"
    Psalm 119:34

    You have some very interesting quotes here.

  2. "Where there is no extravagance there is no love, and where there is no love there is no understanding."

    I understand the second part - there is no understanding without love (or tolerance).

    I don't understand the first part, that there is no love without extravagance.

    Can you explain?

  3. Might have to ask Mr Wilde what he meant Joe. Of course, I do find extravagance in the mundane faithful acts of love.. extravagance does not always mean fireworks to me.
