Different kind of woman

"The fact that I am a woman does not make me a different kind of Christian, but the fact that
I am a Christian makes me a different kind of woman."
~Elisabeth Elliot

Our God is an awesome God

"It wasn't for no reason 
That He shed His blood 
His return is very close 
And so you better be believing that 
Our God is an awesome God."

They have nothing that you want

"But the nice thing about getting older is that it bothers you less and less 
how stupid you are.
Because you hang out with smart people long enough and you see that  they have
nothing that you want.
It's more important to be alive than it is to be smart.
Better a living dog than a dead lion, I guess."
~Rich Mullins

Be forgiven every day

"Forgiveness is the name of love practiced among people who love poorly.
The hard truth is that all people love poorly.
We need to forgive and be forgiven every day, every hour increasingly.
That is the great work of love among the fellowship of the weak that is the human family."
~Henri Nouwen

It's like falling in love

Whitestrand, Ierland

"C.S. Lewis talks about how we don't really want to see beauty.
We want to participate in it. He says joy hurts kind of like an ache, that there's a
sense of longing in every kind of joy.
The closer I get to something, the more I realize how far I am. It's like falling in love -
I am more miserable and lonely for it."
~Rich Mullins

"Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith,
who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame,
and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God."
~Hebrews 12:2

Not joy, not peace, not even blessing but HIMSELF... my GOD."
