Love it! That is absolutely one of my favorite and most frequently used quotes. I find that it is so practical when giving counsel, and hopeful when I need to remind myself about the things I need to let go... that I wouldn't be able to keep them anyway.

Yes, Jim Elliot's quote is so simple yet profound. BTW, great hearing from you - does this mean your "extreme makeover - home edition" vacation is over?
