Knit Together

Let one who wants to move and convince others, first be convinced and moved themselves. If a person speaks with genuine earnestness the thoughts, the emotion and the actual condition of their own heart, others will listen because we all are knit together.

Very Specific Instructions

My brother makes a kick-ass stuffing. He and his wife are visiting over the holidays and he will make said stuffing. Today I received the following in an email from him:
Lest I forget, here's what you'll need to have on hand for stuffing:

One bag of herbed stuffing cubes (e.g., Pepperidge Farm) - not cornbread

One roll of sage pork sausage (e.g., Jimmy Dean silver label, which is apparently now gold with a small silver medallion on the front) - brand is not important, but sage is

one small bunch of celery

three or four yellow onions

three or four cans of chicken broth

one stick of butter-esque fatty substance

You must not vary from the path! I will feel the disturbance in the Force if you do.
And that's why it's a kick-ass stuffing; because he'll probably kick mine if I stray from the righteous path. ;)
