The Love of God

Could we with ink the ocean fill, and were the skies of parchment made;

Were every stalk on earth a quill, and every man a scribe by trade.

To write the love of God above, would drain the ocean dry;

Nor could the scroll contain the whole, though stretched from sky to sky.

O love of God, how rich and pure, how measureless and strong;

It shall for evermore endure, the Saints’ and Angels’ song.

Hold your head high

Never bend your head. Always hold it high. Look the world straight in the eye. - Helen Keller

No ifs, ands, or buts!

"Making excuses is always a waste of time because God is completely aware of who we are and what we can and cannot do. When God calls us, He not only equips us but empowers us to obey that calling." -Mary Southerland

The Missionary Heart

"The missionary heart: Care more than some think is wise. Risk more than some think is safe. Dream more than some think is practical. Expect more than some think is possible. I was called not to comfort or success but to obedience….There is no joy outside of knowing Jesus and serving him."

- Karen Watson, martyr, March 15, 2004

Seeing the good in the bad...

And when it rains on your parade, look up rather than down. Without the rain, there would be no rainbow.
