Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God— this is your true and proper worship.
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.
Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
how life is strange and changeful,
and the crystal is in the steel at the point of fracture,
and the toad bears a jewel in its forehead,
and the meaning of moments passes like the breeze that barely rustles the leaf of the willow.

you’re face is a work of art
you’re smile could probably light up New York after dark
but it’s such a pity
a boy so pretty…
