That Glory is Brief

Standard

That glory is brief which is given to and received from men. The glory of this world is always accompanied by sadness. The glory of good men is in their own conscience and not in the mouths of men. The joy of the just comes from God and is in God, and their rejoicing is in the truth. He who desires true and eternal glory does not care for that which is temporal. And he, who seeks temporal glory, or does not despise it with his whole heart, shows that he has little love for heavenly glory. That man has great tranquility of heart who does not care for praises or blame.

About TJ

In 2015 my family moved from a small village in mid-Michigan to five beautifully forested acres in Northern Michigan. We love the lakes and rivers, the forests, and the billions of stars we can see in the night sky, as well as the many cultural and historical activities in our area. We also love that the deer and wild turkeys come right up to our house. This is where our hearts are! I have multiple cats (five the last time I counted), and a sweet introverted dog who rarely barks and who deeply loves the six adorable ducks and nine chickens that have become part of our family. I enjoy reading, studying, writing, and learning new things. I also enjoy walking my dog, cuddling my cats, and gardening. I love nature. The world fascinates me.
