Eberhard and Emmy Arnold -

You have perhaps waited for years to be freed from some need. For a long, long time you have looked out from the darkness in search of the light, and have had a difficult problem in life that you have not been able to solve in spite of great efforts. And then, when the time was fulfilled and God's hour had come, did not a solution, light, and deliverance come quite unexpectedly, perhaps quite differently than you thought?- Eberhard Arnold, (1883 – 1935) German writer, philosopher, and theologian, "When the Time Was Fulfilled"

It dawns on me more and more how trivial and short our lifespan is. It is like smoke; it is like a flower, it is like grass, it is like a butterfly&emdash;for it passes so quickly, flying away. Nobody, no one can bring back wasted years. One wishes that one would have always lived with Eternity in mind. - Emmy von Hollander Arnold (1884-1990)

Husband and wife founded the Bruderhof community.

I am presently going through a time where God is doing something I thought should have been done 30 years ago. I trust His timing. :-)
