Enthusiam

Disclaimer: I love the study of words, so you may not find this as "wow" as I did . . .
I just read about the root parts of the word "enthusiasm" in a magazine: it comes from the Greek phrase en theos, "with God." The article goes on to state, "So, if you're enthusiastically pursuing a passion that God has put in your heart, you're doing it with God."

Can you say "ironic" considering our conversations about things lately...having peace and being excited (enthusiastic) about stuff?! Great find for you!
