“Problems cannot be solved at the same level of awareness that created them.” – Albert Einstein

Today, while I was reading Whymommy of Toddler Planet, I was reminded of one of my favorite quotes on faith:

 When you have come to the edge of all light that you know and are about to drop off into the darkness of the unknown, Faith is knowing one of two things will happen: There will be something solid to stand on or you will be taught to fly.

~Patrick Overton

At one point we all stand with our toes on the edge of the abyss and we leap.

 And fly. 

Go and give her some faith today.

    Beautiful quote. I will have to put it somewhere so I can remember it. It just … resonates.

    I am so very far behind in my blog reading. But at the obvious risk of confirming just how far behind I am, I wanted to tell you that is one of the most wonderful quotes I’ve ever read. And it captures the meaning exactly. Thank you!
