03/12…of the day

I took some time off.  Started a business.  Started a season with a team making a  run at a State Championship.  

But I’m back.

Verse of the Day:
“By the grace of God I am what I am”
~ 1 Cor. 1:10

Quote of the Day:
“In a gentle way, you can shake the world.”

Excerpt of the Day:
“But in the midst of all of this…I’ve lost my need and suppressed my desire for wonder.
If wonders never cease (and I believe they won’t) then I just need eyes again to see, and intentionality to notice.
I have tried to savor life in the moment–a little snapshot here and a little recognition there. I think I’ve been successful at that.
But have I approached life, all of life, not as a journey to success but as a destination for wonder?
“Our goal should be to live life in radical amazement. ….get up in the morning and look at the world in a way that takes nothing for granted. Everything is phenomenal; everything is incredible; never treat life casually. To be spiritual is to be amazed.”― Abraham Joshua Heschel
My life is not a test from God.
My life is a gift from God.
It’s not about the doing, it’s about the being.Then wonders never cease.
~ “Will Wonders Never Cease” by Melissa Greene

Verse of the Day:
Everything is already yours as a gift—Paul, Apollos, Peter, the world, life, death, the present, the future—all of it is yours, and you are privileged to be in union with Christ, who is in union with God.”
~1 Cor 3:21-23

Quote of the Day:
“Every expression of beauty points to eternity.”
~Hans Ors

Excerpt of the Day:
“I know, my son, I know. I know, my daughter, I know. That thing you wanted is not going to happen. Not the way you’ve always dreamed. I know this hurts. I know this stings. I know you feel like I am distant or not aware of where you are and who hurt you and what you think life was supposed to be like. I know in moments like this you doubt that I can count the hairs on your head or have your best in mind. But please, I am not done. I have barely started to reveal your life to you. I am the God who satisfies your desires with good things. That is me! And when it comes to your hopes and your fears and your dreams, I know, my son, I know.”
~“The Soft X” by Jon Acuff

Currently reading to “Wide Awake” by Erwin McManus  – For real this time…

Lyrics of the Day:
“How I wish you could see the potential,
the potential of you and me.
It’s like a book elegantly bound but,
in a language that you can’t read.
Just yet.

You gotta spend some time, Love.
You gotta spend some time with me.
And I know that you’ll find, love
I will possess your heart.
You gotta spend some time, Love.
You gotta spend some time with me.
And I know that you’ll find, love
I will possess your heart.”
~ “I will Possess Your Heart”  by Death Cab for Cutie

Verse of the day:

“Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly”
~I Corinthians 3:13

Quote of the day:

On the banks of the Red Cedar,
There’s a school that’s known to all;
Its specialty is winning,
And those Spartans play good ball;
Spartan teams are never beaten,
All through the game they’ll fight;
Fight for the only colors:
Green and White.

Go right through for MSU,
Watch the points keep growing,
Spartan teams are bound to win,
They’re fighting with a vim!
Rah! Rah! Rah!
See their team is weakening,
We’re going to win this game,
Fight! Fight! Rah! Team, Fight!
Victory for MSU!
