Lyrics of the Day:
“I was standing there crying in the kitchen
It’s been one of those mornings that’s gonna last all day
And he comes in, wraps his arms around me
And I don’t even have to say a thing

That’s what makes it love
That’s what makes it a love song”

Verse of the Day:
““May your money be destroyed with you for thinking God’s gift can be bought! 21 You can have no part in this, for your heart is not right with God. ”
~Acts. 8:20-21

Quote of the Day:
“There comes a time when you can only run so far from Love. And then, he catches you. Love is not what you think. No one can fathom His ways. Oh, we would like to. But Love is the greatest mystery known to man, the most unstoppable force. God is Love. God is Holy. God—we cannot understand Him. He is the love for which the world looks. The love for which the world desires. We look for Him in a thousand ways, in a thousand places! He is not a feeling, or a philosophy, or an idea. He is the only one who matters. We must pursue Him, because He has pursued us. He chases us in the darkest times, in the silence. We wonder what Love is, but there He stands. His love does not change, His love does not stop. In our most unworthy times, He is there—with His undying, unconditional acceptance—reckless, even.

We have scorned Him in every way. Each day we bring Him fresh disappointment. Too many days we have turned our backs on Him, ignoring His words. Unworthy, we break His heart. But always, He accepts, casting our faults as far as the east is from the west.

We will never love, real love, until we have received His. We will never live life more than empty, unless we live life following Him. Sometimes faith may feel blind, the dance unsure, as He takes the lead. But through it all, we must listen to the whisper that says, ‘Trust me.’ ”
~”A Love that Chases” in Relevant Magazine by Karissa Sechrist

Lyrics of the Day:
“If it’s gonna be a rainy day
There’s nothing we can do to make it change
We can pray for sunny weather
But that won’t stop the rain
Feeling like you got no place to run
I can be your shelter ’til it’s done
We can make this last forever
So please don’t stop the rain ”
~“Please Don’t Stop the Rain” by James Morrison

Lyrics of the Day:
“If you find your self lost out in this world
Then I’ll find a way to get back to your side
No mountains to high, no stone is too small
I’ll build a bridge through the fire, for you I would crawl
From New York to California, To California, To California ”

Quote of the Day:
“I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.”

Lyrics of the Day:
“You leave home and you move on and you do the best you can
I got lost in this old world and forgot who I am

I thought if I could touch this place or feel it
This brokenness inside me might start healing
Out here it’s like I’m someone else
I thought that maybe I could find myself
If I could just come in I swear I’ll leave
Won’t take nothing but a memory
From the house that built me
~“House that Built Me” by Miranda Lambert

love, Love, LOVE this song.  oh how the lyrics resonate.

Lyrics of the Day:
