Not in real life

"Oh! It seems to me more and more that people are the root of everything,
and though it will always be a melancholy thought that
you yourself are not in real life,
I mean, that it's more worth while to work in flesh."
~Vincent van Gogh, 1889

Only by God, the Creator

"There is a God shaped vacuum in the heart of every man which cannot be filled by any created thing,
but only by God, the Creator, made known through Jesus."

Every winter

just to help the shopkeepers?"
