The architecture of this building makes me happy every time I run past its copper roofed structure. Now I need to go run. Have a wonderful day!

“Compassion is sometimes the fatal capacity for feeling what it is like to live inside somebody else’s skin. It is the knowledge that there can never really be any peace and joy for me until there is peace and joy for you too.”
-Author Fredrick Buechener
Choosing to have compassion means that possibly you will hurt more, but the love and joy will be doubled as the other person overcomes his or her struggle and comes into freedom.
Last week as I ran next to a nearby pond, I looked and found this leaf that looks like a heart. It reminds me to keep opening up to love and not to stay frozen. Loving hurts at times, but it is so worth it!
