    Tonight riding the city bus I realized the sweet smell of sucess is pale to the sweetness of the decline of financial well being. I realized the rest of the world becomes a rainbow up above and all others glisten as gemstones or stars. It truly wonderful to be last and put others before you. When you walk with Jesus, people become so much more. I long to sleep on the ground with my brothers and sisters I have seen. Then I will truly know the love of God. When I have nothing I will have everything.
