“we are afflicted in every way, but no despairing; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying about in the body the dying ofJesus, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. For we who live are constantly being delivered over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh. So death works in us, but life in you. …we believe, therefore we also speak…”
2 Cor. 4:8-12, 13b
“There is no character, howsoever good and fine, but it can be destroyed by ridicule, howsoever poor and witless. Observe the ass, for instance: his character is about perfect, he is the choicest spirit among all the humbler animals, yet see what ridicule has brought him to. Instead of feeling complimented when we are called an ass, we are left in doubt.” – Pudd’nhead Wilson’s Calendar
Today hasn’t been particularly exceptional. I woke up early, having gone to bed early; read a trashy novel I got at Penny Box for 5 cents until 9:40 or so; then showered and started work. The rest of the day was work until Ian called at 3:00, at which time we had a bad fight, resolved it slowly, and I finally went for my snowy walk around the WPI track. I am tired, though in all honesty I haven’t done much. I started working out a bit, doing push-ups and sit-ups and such. It feels good to feel my muscles again, even in a painful way.
