“..my wife, who in the midst of busy days, often says to me, “Look at me.” She wants to see my eyes and for me to see hers. She delights in relationship. She does not want our lives to be only about tasks and doing. She wants us to see each other’s face with joy.
I think our God wants to us to look at Him — not to accomplish anything, but just to behold His beauty.”—Mark Lauterbach (via psalmthirtyeleven)
“She was the kind of person who took care of things by herself. She’d never ask anybody for advice or help. It wasn’t a matter of pride, I think. She just did what seemed natural to her.”—Naoko (Norwegian Wood, Haruki Murakami)
