"Do not glory in your own faith, your own feelings, your own knowledge, or your own diligence. Glory in nothing but Christ." ~
" I like cancelled plans. And empty bookstores. I like rainy days and thunderstorms. And quiet coffee shops. I like messy beds and over-worn pajamas. Most of all, I like the small joys that a simple life brings.
Don’t try to win a man over with your charm-
Don’t try to win a man over with your beauty-
Fear the Lord.
" You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
" Action vs. Words.
When You start looking at someone who Was.
- What they did.
- What they said.
You can not see them as they Are.
- Why they did.
- Why they said.
See them for what they will Be.
- Do You Trust.
- Do You Love.
Dwelling on past words.
Futures can not be Made.
Learning from past words.
Actions can be Made.
Actions no longer speak louder than Words.
Words now speak louder than actions.
Make Actions speak louder than Words.
Be the Light.
" The words ‘I’ll see you later’ always make goodbyes easier. Even if later if tomorrow or in five years. Maybe later is never and maybe later is whenever you want it to be.
" The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill. It will make or break a company…a church…a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding attitude we embrace for that day. We cannot change our past…we cannot change the fact that people act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have…and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10 % what happens to me and 90 % how I react to it. And so it is with you… we are in charge of our attitudes.
" I cannot even imagine where I would be today were it not for that handful of friends who have given me a heart full of joy. Let’s face it, friends make life a lot more fun.
