Verse of the Day:
“God sovereignly made me—the first, the basic—
before he did anything else.
I was brought into being a long time ago,
well before Earth got its start.
I arrived on the scene before Ocean,
yes, even before Springs and Rivers and Lakes.
Before Mountains were sculpted and Hills took shape,
I was already there, newborn;”
~Prov 8:22-25

Lyrics of the Day:
“And it’s these things that hold you down
when they’re supposed to keep you safe and sound.
And it’s these things you claim to believe
don’t let them be the ones you forever try to please.”

My first piece of art (which is by Kristen Case) that I own, that is framed and hanging in my home.  I think I just might be a “grown up”
SCARY, I know!

Quote of the Day:
“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself,  ‘I have lived through this horror.  I can take the next thing that comes along.  You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”
~Eleanor Roosevelt

Verse of the Day:
“I’m thanking you, God, out in the streets,
singing your praises in town and country.
The deeper your love, the higher it goes;
every cloud’s a flag to your faithfulness.
Soar high in the skies, O God!
Cover the whole earth with your glory!
And for the sake of the one you love so much,
reach down and help me—answer me!”
~Ps 108:3-6

Lyrics of the Day:
“Let me know
Do I still got time to grow
Things ain’t always set and stone
Let me know, Let me know
Let me
Seems life

Street lights, glowing
Happen to be just like mornings
Passing, in front of me
So I hopped in
The cab and I paid my fairs
See I know my, destination
But I’m just not there”
~ “Street Lights” by Kanye West

Verse of the Day:
“ Give me your lantern and compass,
give me a map,
So I can find my way to the sacred mountain,
to the place of your presence,
To enter the place of worship,
meet my exuberant God,
Sing my thanks with a harp,
magnificent God, my God.
Why are you down in the dumps, dear soul?
Why are you crying the blues?
Fix my eyes on God—
soon I’ll be praising again.
He puts a smile on my face.
He’s my God. ”
~Ps 43:3-5

Quote of the Day:
“A Christian should use [the] arts to the glory of God, not just as tracts, mind you, but as things of beauty to the praise of God. An art work can be a doxology in itself.”
~Francis A. Schaeffer

Lyrics of the Day:
“If I were a painter
I would paint my reverie
If that’s the only way for you to be with me

We’d be there together
Just like we used to be
Underneath the swirling skies for all to see

And I’m dreaming of a place
Where I could see your face
And I think my brush would take me there
But only …

If I were a painter
And could paint a memory
I’d climb inside the swirling skies to be with you
I’d climb inside the skies to be with you”
~ “Painter”  Norah Jones

Poem of the Day:
“I love thy music, mellow bell,
I love thine iron chime,
To life or death, to heaven or hell,
Which calls the sons of Time.

Thy voice upon the deep
The home-bound sea-boy hails,
It charms his cares to sleep,
It cheers him as he sails.

To house of God and heavenly joys
Thy summons called our sires,
And good men thought thy sacred voice
Disarmed the thunder’s fires.

And soon thy music, sad death-bell,
Shall lift its notes once more,
And mix my requiem with the wind
That sweeps my native shore.”
~ “The Bell” by Ralph Waldo Emerson

Lyrics of the Day:
“This is surrender
to a wartorn life i’ve lived
scars and stripes forever
in need of change i can’t resist

no need to hide anything anymore
cant return to who i was before

i can finally breathe
suddenly alive
i can finally move
the world feels revived

this long of a struggle
finally opened up my eyes
revolutions not easy
with a civil war on the inside

no need to hide anything anymore
cant return to who i was before

i can finally breathe
suddenly alive
i can finally move
cause I realize”
