    Verse of the Day
    There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.
    1 John 4:18 NIV

    I like it. Inspiring words are always welcome. Good Bible quotes are great, but they don't have to be from the good book to inspire also.

    The only people you should try to get even with are those who have helped you.


    Of all the things you wear, your expression is the most important.


    Action is the difference between why and why not.

    By Rev Billy Graham...

    The Real Source of Power
    A man or a woman who has been focusing all attention on financial gains, or business, or social prestige, or who has centered all his affection on some one person, experiences a devastating sense of loss when denied the thing that has given life its meaning. In these tragic moments, the individual recognizes how terribly and completely alone he is.

    In that moment the Holy Spirit may cause the worldly bandages to fall from his eyes so that he sees clearly for the first time. He recognizes that God is the only source of real power, and the only enduring fountainhead of love and companionship.

    Daily Prayer
    From out of the depths, Lord, my eyes have seen that only You are unchanging, eternal love. Help me to put You first in everything I do.

    Amen. Thanks T.Jeff for starting this, will be one of the things I look for daily, as my attendance to weekly church has gone by the wayside with my feelings towards "modern church nuances".

    The longer you carry a grudge, the heavier it becomes.



    If you don’t stand up for something, you’ll fall for anything.



    Perhaps the best thing to have up your sleeve is your funny bone.

    My grace is sufficient for you, for in (voluntary) weakness My power is made perfect in you.

    When I was young, I thought I could get by on wit (looks were definitely not going to do it). It wasn't long into adulthood that I realized that whatever wit I had was completely inadequate for making a living or sustaining meaningful relationships. I was fortunate enough to run into someone who knew this about himself, and had studied the art "winning friends and influencing people."

    So, I started with the Golden Rule:. Do unto others...

    I follow with: Direct all of your thoughts to others, and away from oneself.

    And finally, one from Mom:. Smile.

    These three seemingly self-evident bits of wisdom turned my life around.

    Not always easy or perfect. But a good starting point.

    A person’s mind is like a parachute; it works best when open.



    By sharing in the joy of another, we increase that joy. By sharing is the woe of another, we diminish that woe.



    You must take life as you find it, but you don’t have to leave it that way.

    Satisfied by Righteousness
    Man hungers for food, and God sends the sun and rain upon the golden fields of grain. The grain is made into flour, and flour into bread, and man’s physical hunger is satisfied. Man hungers for love; and God ignites the fire of affection in another heart, and two hearts are made complete in the bonds of holy matrimony.

    Man hungers for knowledge, and God raises up institutions of learning, calls men to be instructors, puts it into the hearts of the rich to endow them; and men are satisfied in their thirst for knowledge. Man hungers for fellowship; and God allows him to build cities where men can share their industry, and their knowledge, and their skills.

    Don’t tell me that God can supply man with an abundance of everything material and yet will let him starve spiritually! . . . God will satisfy the hunger and thirst of those who desire His righteousness because He loves the world with an undying affection.

    Daily Prayer
    You have abundantly supplied my greatest need, heavenly Father, for You have given me love.
