    I liked this (s)word:

    The problem is, people are not inanimate objects like: paper, wood, fabric, cloth, material, coins, rubber, or plastic.

    People are flesh and blood — hearts and minds. A "coupling" of people is two people — the will and consent of both is a required component. It's not as "easy" to mend people [in that sense].

    But at the same time — I think that means human beings are always [in some sense] "redeemable". A lot of times, when something plastic breaks, it's over — you can't fix it because it's cheap plastic. So [though mending/coupling humans might be harder in one sense] the potential for knitting hearts together as one is always there. Human beings aren't cheap or disposable, like plastic.

    Also, Joanna — if you don't mind — I'd like to ask you if you'd share this link [An Appeal for Prayer and Fasting] on your FB page. It's a story that a friend of mine shared with me via e-mail.

    The story he sent me is in the post — but [in short] he's just asking for some people to offer up some intention to the Lord — "Hoping that the universe will intervene." for a particular family.
