Verse of the Day:

and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”

Verse of the Day:
“I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in His word I put my hope.”
~Ps 130:5

Quote of the Day:
“But the thing is, it’s hard to let go of that fairy tale entirely, because almost everyone has that smallest bit of faith and hope that one day they would open their eyes and it would all come true. At the end of the day, faith is a funny thing. It turns up when you don’t really expect it. It’s like one day you realize that the fairy tale is slightly different than your dream. The castle, well it may not be a castle. And it’s not so important that it’s happily ever after — just that it’s happy right now. See, once in a while, once in a blue moon, people will surprise you. And once in awhile, people may even take your breath away.”
~ Merridith, “Grey’s Anatomy

Lyrics of the Day:
“For it’s hard,
you will find,
to be narrow of mind,
if you’re young at heart.”
~“Young at Heart” by Frank Sinatra

Verse of the Day:
“There are three things that amaze me—
no, four things that I don’t understand:
how an eagle glides through the sky,
how a snake slithers on a rock,
how a ship navigates the ocean,
how a man loves a woman
~Prov 30:18-19

Lyrics of the Day:
“When somebody loves you
It’s no good unless he loves you all the way
Happy to be near you
When you need someone to cheer you all the way

Taller than the tallest tree is
That’s how it’s got to feel
Deeper than the deep blue sea is
That’s how deep it goes if it’s real

When somebody needs you
It’s no good unless he needs you all the way
Through the good or lean years
And for all those in between years, come what may

Who knows where the road will lead us
Only a fool would say, but if you let me love you
It’s for sure I’m gonna love you all the way”
~“All the Way” by Frank Sinatra

Verse of the Day:
“When you have eaten your fill, be sure to praise the Lord your God for the good land he has given you.”
~Deut 8:10

Quote of the Day:
“At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.”
~ Albert Schweitzer

Lyrics of the Day:
“Don’t wanna leave this world, knowing I’ve lived in vain.
No time for myself; so sorry, so ashamed.
Don’t wanna leave this life, knowing I’ve barely tried.
Chase down all my dreams that I’ve hid away on the inside.”
~“Burn Out Brighter” by Anberlin

Lyrics of the Day:
“She got the call today
One out of the gray
And when the smoke cleared
It took her breath away
She said she didn’t believe
It could happen to me
I guess we’re all one phone call from our knees
We’re gonna get there soon”
~ “Closer to Love” by Mat Kearney

Verse of the Day:
“The instructions of the Lord are perfect,
reviving the soul.
The decrees of the Lord are trustworthy,
making wise the simple.
The commandments of the Lord are right,
bringing joy to the heart.
The commands of the Lord are clear,
giving insight for living.”
~Ps 19:7-8

Video of the Day: throwin’ out a little love for an old friend…

Quote of the Day:
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.  Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.  It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.  We ask ourselves,  Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?  Actually, who are you not to be?  You are a child of God.  Your playing small does not serve the world.  There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.  We are all meant to shine, as children do.  We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.  It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.  And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.  As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
~ “Our Deepest Fear” by Marianne Williamson

Verse of the Day:
I’m asking GOD for one thing,
only one thing:
To live with him in his house
my whole life long.
I’ll contemplate his beauty;
I’ll study at his feet.”
~Ps. 27:4

Quote of the Day:
“And let there be no purpose in friendship save the deepening of the spirit. For love that seeks aught but the disclosure of its own mystery is not love but a net cast forth: and only the unprofitable is caught.”
~ Kahlil Gibran

Lyrics of the Day:
“What kind of fool am i, who never fell in love?
It seems that I’m the only one I have been thinking of.

What kind of man is this?
an empty shell, a lonely cell
In which an empty heart must dwell?

What kind of lips are these that lied with every kiss?
That whispered empty words of love that left me alone like

Why can’t I fall in love like any other man?
And maybe then I’ll know what kind of fool I am.

What kind of clown am i?
what do I know of life?
Why can’t I cast away the mask of play and live my life?

Why can’t I fall in love, till I don’t give a damn?
And maybe I’ll know what kind of fool I am.”
~ Frank Sinatra, “What Kind of Fool am I”
