Sunday during the Bible study on Matthew's Gospel that I'm leading we got into a discussion about how sublte changes in wording can make huge differences in how we look at things. (It all started when someone had a Bible in which all the Beatitudes began with "Happy are the ..." , which we found pretty interesting.) Here's an interesting twist in that:

I love times that I'm able to be alone, but I certainly don't like being alone. How about you?
