"Wings are an illusive fallacy. Some may possess them, but they are not very visible, and as for me, there isn't the least sign of a feather. Don't imagine that by crossing the sea and landing on a foreign shore and learning a foreign lingo you 'burst the bonds of outer sin and hatch yourself a cherubim.'"

"We profess to be strangers and pilgrims, seeking after a country of our own, yet we settle down in the most un-stranger-like fashion, exactly as if we were quite at home and meant to stay as long as we could. I don't wonder apostolic miracles have died. Apostolic living certainly has."

"Satan is so much more in earnest than we are -- he buys up the opportunity while we are wondering how much it will cost."

- Amy Carmichael, quoted from A Chance to Die by Elisabeth Elliot

  1. Be good though wouldn't it! Having a secret set of wings. Just think - no more being grounded at airports. No more rush hours and look at the fantastic view of all that earth and sea below you. I startled a baby starling in my garden hedge today. I was cutting a bramble back and there he was, just out of the nest, trying his wings. He was petrified, for a few minutes, poor little thing and then he disappeared into the hedgerow.
    Have a good week. Love Molly x
