Goodness is active. As we learned in the preceding chaper, kindness means planning to do something good for others. And now goodness moves into total action. God in us and His presence with us produces His goodness in us.

I am glad I am not the only person in blogland who doesn't know what "meme" means. And how is it pronounced, like mimi or is it like meem? These are questions I have been wanting to ask since the first time I saw this perplexing word.

It is a ME! ME! Cause it's all about me! So when you need a topic to post about-it's all about me me OR a meme.

It drives me nuts when internet jargon spawns new words.

That book sounds interesting. The only one I've read of hers is A Woman After God's Own Heart.
