Beggar who gives alms

Beggar who gives alms by Downhere
"There are no mystic jewels, embedded in my prose,

No moonlit haloed cherubs, perched on my piano,

No lyrics laced with pixie dust, no angels sings along.

I am just a beggar who gives alms


Gold and silver have I none, but such I have give thee,

Borrowed words from the one, who gave the gift to me,

The pearl that I could never buy, this life, this dream, this song,

And I am just a beggar who gives alms

I am not the creator, but a scribe with a pen,

I'm recreating visions, through a cracked and broken lens,

Only one has ever seen the home for which we long,

And I am just a beggar who gives alms."

If I Never Knew You

"I'd rather die tomorrow than live a hundred years without knowing you" John Smith- Disney's Pcoahontas <--- watch this!

"If I never knew you

If i never felt this love

I would have no inkling of

How precious life can be

And if I never held you

I would never have a clue

How at last I'd find in you

The missing part of me.

In this world so full of fear

Full of rage and lies

I can see the truth so clear

In your eyes

So dry your eyes

And I'm so grateful to you

I'd hve lived my whole life through

Lost forever

If I never knew you"

Cheesy time!

" When you are in Love you can't fall asleep because reality is better than your dreams. "

-- Dr Suess

No I am not in love with anyone! haha
I just thought it was a cute cheesy quote. It reminded me of that other quote about dreams I posted the other day...

Irish Blessing

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face;

The rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,

May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Men and Women Part II

Man has will, but woman has her way.
Oliver Wendell Holmes

So true, no?

Saturday, October 9, 2010


"If you love me only in my dreams, let me be asleep forever."


Okay okay, super cheesy quote today! I just thought it was so cute. I have felt that way. I don't know about you but I struggle with facing reality. Sometime life seems too hard and in your dreams everything goes right. There was a time when I would lie in bed trying to dream or sleep, just to get away from it all. I realize now that I have to face the world and my life, I can't hide from it. The best thing is I'm not doing it alone. I have the Sovereign God of the universe behind me, leading me if only I would allow Him. Think about that today. Are you hiding from your life? Do you just want to pretend and dream all day or will you face your destiny?

Those three little words...

"It's so easy, To think about Love, To Talk about Love, To wish for Love, But it's not always easy, To recognize Love, Even when we hold it.... In our hands."

Isn't the phrase "I love you" so overused yet underused in it's true meaning. Let's remember today not only of human love but of the divine love of our Father in heaven. John 3:16, th most profound verse (to me anyway) in the whole Bible. Everytime I read it or remember it I can help but wonder why He did it. Why would He allow His Son to die for the world? It blows my mind but I am so eternally grateful for it. <3

It's worth fighting for

Frodo: I can't do this, Sam.

Sam: I know. It's all wrong. By rights we shouldn't even be here. But we are. It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it's only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn't. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something.

Frodo: What are we holding onto, Sam?

Sam: That there's some good in this world, Mr. Frodo... and it's worth fighting for.

Don't rain on my parade!

"I'll march my band out, I will beat my drum,

And if I'm fanned out, your turn at bat, sir,

At least I didn't fake it, hat, sir,

I guess I didn't make it

Get ready for me love, 'cause I'm a "comer"

I simply gotta march, my heart's a drummer

Nobody, no, nobody, is gonna rain on my parade!"
~Don't Rain on My Parade from "Funny Girl"

So, it's REALLY rainy and gross outside. It made me think of this amazing song. I love it! If you've never seen the movie, eh who cares? It's the songs that are awesome! Listen to them on YouTube or something.

God's perfect timing...

"Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up."
~ Galations 6:9

Ever feel like giving up? That no one cares what you're doing and don't appreciate you? Keep going! God sees all and one day you will recieve your reward. Sometimes on earth we don't know everyone that we affect but in heaven we will find out.

Don't do things to look good or get the glory on earth, do them for the God of the universe.

Yay a poem! :D

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,

When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,

When the funds are low and the debts are high,

And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,

When care is pressing you down a bit-

Rest if you must, but don't you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,

As every one of us sometimes learns,

And many a fellow turns about

When he might have won had he stuck it out.

Don't give up though the pace seems slow -

You may succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than

It seems to a faint and faltering man;

Often the struggler has given up

When he might have captured the victor's cup;

And he learned too late when the night came down,

How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out -

The silver tint in the clouds of doubt,

And you never can tell how close you are,

It might be near when it seems afar;

So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit -

It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.


I needed that maybe you did too...

Don't judge a book by its cover...

"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart."

-Helen Keller

I don't know about you, but, I think we hold beauty in too high of a standard. We think less of those who we feel are not beautiful and don't want to be seen with them. Or maybe we want to be seen with them so that we look better next to them. Either way, it's a totally wrong attitude! Whether or not someone is beautiful does not change who they are inside. A beautiful person can be a mean ugly person inside just as an ugly person can have a beautiful heart, not just vice versa! I say DON'T JUDGE!
I feel people judging me all the time. Even my friends do it sometimes. I will be honest, I am certainly not skinny and I am certainly not very attractive, but looks are not a good reason not to get to know someone!!!!! It makes me so angry when guys only go for the pretty skinny girls. I'm not saying that girls that are pretty are less human but give both sides a chance! It's not fair to be so mean to those that WE FEEL are not as good looking. Who can help how they are born? Tell me, WHO CHOSE THEIR FACE?!? WHY IS ONE THING BEAUTIFUL AND ONE THING UGLY?!? WHO DECIDES WHAT IS BEAUTIFUL?!?
Well, I have said my piece. But, take my advice. Give the guy/girl a chance, get to know them before you cross them off the list of potential mates.

Let Go...Let GOD

"Give your burden to the Lord, and He will take care of you." ~ Psalm 55:22

A Bible verse for today, I feel kinda bad that I haven't posted more.
Well, if you know me, I worry ALOT. Way too much in fact. I hate that I worry because it means I am not relying on God. Worrying is what I struggle with the most out of anything.  So, starting today I want to try my hardest to give my burdens, my worries to Him. You try it too! Maybe you think you have it all together... Examine yourself and you will find that there is always something bugging you. Maybe it's money or the future... Give it up to God. Who better to hold your future than the One who created you?!

Beauty from Pain

"If God can bring blessing from the broken body of Jesus and glory from something that's as obscene as the cross, He can bring blessing from my problems and my pain and my unanswered prayer. I just have to trust Him."

~Anne Graham Lotz

"God is the only one who can make the valley of trouble a door of hope."

~Catherine Marshall

"God does not always heal us instantly the way we think. He is not a jack-in-the-box God. But God is walking with me through this."

~Thelma Wells

Today I found out my grandfather's cancer is back. My grandfather found out he had stage four cancer almost a year ago and just recently went into remission only to have it back again. I am so upset and discouraged. I know God has done this for a reason but why this again? When I finally am able to catch my breath again and have a normal life? It's really hard to have to constantly be going through trials.
Then again, I think of the apostle Paul and the incredible amount of horrible things he went through. If God used him and loved him then He will certainly be with me during mine. I pray that He uses this bad situation to His glory. I pray that He turns my tears to joy.

Goodbyes are hard...

People so seldom say I love you And then it's either too late or love goes. So when I tell you I love you, It doesn't mean I know you'll never go, Only that I wish you didn't have to.

So after a wonderful weekend I am back at BBC. Man it was hard coming back! When I left all my little siblings were crying, which made me cry. Yeah, it was awful. But it's nice to be back! A nice relaxing week ahead.

9/11- Never Forget

“Time is passing. Yet, for the United States of America, there will be no forgetting September the 11th. We will remember every rescuer who died in honor. We will remember every family that lives in grief. We will remember the fire and ash, the last phone calls, the funerals of the children. “
- President George W. Bush
No matter what you have to say about Bush, this quote is one I think we can relate to. Let's pray for those who had to endure the loss of a loved one or friend because of 9/11.
The terrorist attack is one of the events that God can take a horrible occurance and use it to bring people to Him. It's times like these that I wonder why pain and death had to come into the world. It's a question I probably will never find the answer to. God, however, always has the answers and always has a plan. Jeremiah 29:11

I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.

I'm not gonna lie, today was pretty depressing. I got a C on my English paper. (one I worked quite hard on actually also, my first C on anything EVER) I'm kinda wondering how that happened, seeing as I think I am a good writer...
Then, I kept messing up in play practice, even to the point where the director had to pull me aside. It's days like these that make me thankful that days are only 24 hours.

However, I have decided to use this as motivation to do better, to be better. I know my limitations, but I am willing to give it my all to succeed.

Sunday, September 5, 2010

So long, farewell...

Why can't we get all the people together in the world that we really like and then just stay together? I guess that wouldn't work. Someone would leave. Someone always leaves. Then we would have to say good-bye. I hate good-byes. I know what I need. I need more hellos. ~Charles M. Schulz

I'm kind of sad at the moment. My family was visiting today but now they are gone again. I miss them terribly already. Goodbyes are so hard!

Maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had, and what you've learned from them, and less to do with how many birthdays you've celebrated.” - Anonymous

Well, I am now officially 18 years old. Weird! I feel so old, so "grown up". I hate it! Just kidding, though, actually I just don't like it. (Hate is too strong a word) I have now spent my first birthday at college and my first day of classes here. A weird combo no? Needless to say, I was not very happy about having to do school on MY birthday. It has been a strange day actually, it does not feel like a birthday AT ALL. My family isn't here, my friends from home aren't here, and I didn't get to eat birthday cake! ;D Bummer, I know.
It's weird, I actually forgot today was my birthday! You see, at lunch, I saw some pretty tempting brownies as dessert. I did not allow myself one, thinking only of the numerous calories they contained. If I had realized TODAY was my birthday I would definitely taken one! (and consequently gained 10lbs for the sake of Murphy's Law)
It hasn't been too bad of a day though. My RA gave me some flowers! They're very pretty and are on my desk. My Mom, Danielle, and Skylar left me cards and a present, which was thoughtful of them. I also got many "Happy Birthday"s.
I'm just INCREDIBLY homesick and wish I were home having a true birthday party. :(
So, anyone wanna bake me a cake? :P

Servant's heart

"For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many."
-Mark 10:45
Jesus came to be a servant. Think about that, the Lord, God in human flesh, came to serve the lowliest of low. It blows my mind.
We don't expect a king to be doing a servant's job. We would never tell a king he should be washing floors or putting away dishes. But Christ, the King of all Kings, came to be a servant to all. He didn't come to be treated as royalty but came to save those that could not save themselves.
Remember John 13? Where Jesus washes His disciples feet? That is the example we should follow. We should be like Christ and present ourselves as a servant and helper.

Jesus Washes the Disciples’ Feet
1Now before the Feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that his hour had come to depart out of this world to the Father, having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end. 2During supper, when the devil had already put it into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray him, 3Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he had come from God and was going back to God, 4rose from supper. He laid aside his outer garments, and taking a towel, tied it around his waist. 5Then he poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples’ feet and to wipe them with the towel that was wrapped around him. 6He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, "Lord, do you wash my feet?" 7 Jesus answered him, "What I am doing you do not understand now, but afterward you will understand." 8 Peter said to him, "You shall never wash my feet." Jesus answered him,  "If I do not wash you, you have no share with me." 9Simon Peter said to him, "Lord, not my feet only but also my hands and my head!" 10Jesus said to him, "The one who has bathed does not need to wash, except for his feet, but is completely clean. And you are clean, but not every one of you." 11 For he knew who was to betray him; that was why he said, "Not all of you are clean."
12When he had washed their feet and put on his outer garments and resumed his place, he said to them,  "Do you understand what I have done to you? 13 You call me Teacher and Lord, and you are right, for so I am. 14If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. 15For I have given you an example, that you also should do just as I have done to you. 16Truly, truly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. 17If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them.

A collection of quotes from "The Queen of Crime"

An archaeologist is the best husband a woman can have. The older she gets the more interested he is in her.
Agatha Christie

Good advice is always certain to be ignored, but that's no reason not to give it.

Two at a time!

I learned three important things in college - to use a library, to memorize quickly and visually, to drop asleep at any time given a horizontal surface and fifteen minutes. ~Agnes DeMille

Well, I leave for college in just two weeks. It's really weird to be able to say that! Anyways, so I decided to have a college quote today but then I saw this one:

Don't live down to expectations. Go out there and do something remarkable. ~Wendy Wasserstein

I just couldn't resist posting that one as well.

I don't wanna grow up...

Growing Old is Mandatory - Growing Up Is Optional - Chili Davis
Today I was feeling really old. Do you ever feel that way? It's like where did the time go?! I turn 18 in a little more than 2 weeks; which sparked me looking for this quote. I thought it was pretty funny and true.

A worthy calling

"He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to earn what he cannot lose." -Jim Elliot
Have you ever heard of Jim Elliot? The missionary who was murdered by Auca indians while trying to minister to them. He had an amazing life and testimony. You can learn more by reading "Through Gates of Splendor" by his wife Elisabeth Elliot.


Sooooo...I'm now on my fourth blog. Yay!
I want this blog to be all about quotes
I want to add quotes every week. :)
We'll see!
