12/20…of the day

Verse of the Day:
“For God so (so= because of the manner or intensity of feelings) loved (love= to provide for and protect YOU) the world, that he sent his son.”
~John 3:16 – It’s because of God’s intense love for us that he provided a way to protect me, even knowing the depths of my heart.  He still chose to send his son to earth.  That is the unbelievable beauty of Christmas

Quote of the Day:
“This is a crazy story about an all-powerful God who created everything and could do anything he wanted to do and he CHOSE to tenderly step into His creation to ruthlessly deal with sin, out of love”
~Noel Heikkinen in “Behold* Jesus

Verse of the Day:
“Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
~ Jer 29:12

Quote of the Day:
“I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys.”
~Charles Dickens

Excerpt of the Day:
“We live in these moments. We live with these people — who teach me to listen, to forgive, to have patience, to understand. These are the moments that make a life, rounding out the jagged edges of lists and deadlines and everyday schedules.

But these moments come small and silent in the midst of our busy days. The won’t beg to be unwrapped, they simply present themselves and move softly on. May we have eyes to see them today.”
~ “Tuesday’s Unwrapped” by Emily Freeman

Fav Line: “Your words are inked on my skin”

Excerpt of the Day:
“In each session they teach you objectives. Why do we do this exercise? Many teams train just to get physically fit, but the key is to understand the game, to choose the moment you play the ball short in order to then play it long. To know how to decide on the field is the most important thing they teach at La Masia. But it’s also a school of life because it teaches you the values of respect, humility and camaraderie. It’s a way to live soccer and life.”
~“The World’s Team” by Grant Whal

Verse of the Day:
“A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.”
~Prov 17:17

Quote of the Day:
“There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition, and of unspeakable love.”
~W. Irving

Lyrics of the Day:
“And in the end, you’re still my friend at least we did intend
For us to work we didn’t break, we didn’t burn
We had to learn how to bend without the world caving in
I had to learn what I’ve got, and what I’m not
And who I am”
~“I Won’t Give Up” by Jason Mraz

Verse of the Day:
“So, chosen by God for this new life of love, dress in the wardrobe God picked out for you: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline. Be even-tempered, content with second place, quick to forgive an offense. Forgive as quickly and completely as the Master forgave you. And regardless of what else you put on, wear love. It’s your basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it. ”
~Col 3:12-14

Quote of the Day:
“Women are made to be loved, not understood.”
