Every animal, insect, bird, reptile breathes. All of us taking in the same common source of oxygen, the atmosphere of Earth. Our hearts beating from when they begin until we die, without our manipulation or guidance.
When it looks horrid, when it seems impossible, when I am viewing things as bleak or hope-deprived; God has me where I am for a reason, for a season.
You can't change the one you love, from inside or from above. But woe to the one who releases their individual rights as God's child, instead giving themselves over to another for trampling.
