We are made of so many things. We're made of water. We're made of stardust. We can't see the individual atoms, but we are made of one thing that can be seen and heard as God-inspired. We're made of stories. Our faith is based on the stories we've read and heard over the years, and we have placed our hearts and lives in those stories. We believe in stories. We believe in something greater than ourselves. We believe in the Greatest Story of All. One of the first stories I remember is, "Jesus loves me, this I know. For the Bible tells me so. Little ones to Him belong. We are weak, but He is strong." This is the story I believe when I can't believe anything else.

Thou takest the pen – and the lines dance. Thou takest the flute – and the notes shimmer. Thou takes the brush – and the colors sing. So all things have meaning and beauty in that space beyond where Thou art. How, then, can I hold anything back from Thee."–Dag Hammarskjöld, Markings
