These are a few random thoughts I've been mulling over for a while. They aren't connected. Maybe they are. I think there's a tiny thread that links them together. But maybe not.

Memories are hard to erase. In fact, they are pretty much impossible to erase without starting life over again. And when everything you see, touch, smell, hear brings back a painful memory, it's time to make new ones. Or start life over again. Hm.

"Where two or three are gathered in My name, I am there in the midst of them." This is talking about unity. Where there is no unity, He cannot manifest Himself in us. It doesn't necessarily refer to prayer. It's anything you set your hand or mind to that glorifies His name. And if it doesn't bring honor and glory to His name, I ask you to whose name does it bring?
