"Let brotherly love continue. Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.

My Amish Home | Unwelcome visitors among granddaughter's utensils

"And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal." John 12:23-25
