Verse of the Day:
“May the God of your hope so fill you with all joy and peace in believing–that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound and be overflowing (bubbling over) with hope.”
~Rom 15:13

Quote of the Day:
“I firmly believe in small gestures: pay for their coffee, hold the door for strangers, over tip, smile or try to be kind even when you don’t feel like it, pay compliments, chase the kid’s runaway ball down the sidewalk and throw it back to him, try to be larger than you are— particularly when it’s difficult. People do notice, people appreciate. I appreciate it when it’s done to me. Small gestures can be an effort, or actually go against our grain (I’m not a big one for paying compliments), but the irony is that almost every time you make them, you feel better about yourself. For a moment life suddenly feels lighter, a bit more Gene Kelly dancing in the rain.”
~Jonathan Carroll

Lyrics of the Day:
“Regrets collect like old friends
Here to relive your darkest moments

So tonight I’m gonna cut it out and then restart

It’s always darkest before the dawn

Verse of the Day:
“By faith these people overthrew kingdoms, ruled with justice, and received what God had promised them. They shut the mouths of lions, quenched the flames of fire, and escaped death by the edge of the sword. Their weakness was turned to strength. They became strong in battle and put whole armies to flight.”
~Heb 11:33-34

Quote of the Day:
“Not too many people know what it‟s like to stand in goal and have that pressure. Hope thrives on it. She‟s not afraid. You have to make a split decision. You can‟t second-guess yourself. It‟s all or nothing. I think she‟s one of the few who‟s not afraid to go for it all.”
~“The Look of Sport – Hope Solo

Lyrics of the Day:
“And the heart is hard to translate
It has a language of its own
It talks and turns and courts sighs and present proclamations
In the grand days of great men and the smallest of gestures
And short shallow gasps ”
