~Eph. 4:2

Lyrics of the Day:
“She’s as pretty as a picture
Every bit as funny as she is smart
Got a smile that’ll hold you together
And a touch that’ll tear you apart

When she’s yours she brings the sunshine
When she’s gone the world goes dark
Yeah, she’s heaven on the eyes
But boy she’s hell on the heart”
~“Hell on the Heart” by Eric Church

Verse of the Day:
“ ‘O Israel,’ says the Lord,
‘if you wanted to return to me, you could.
You could throw away your detestable idols
and stray away no more.
Then when you swear by my name, saying,
“As surely as the Lord lives,”
you could do so
with truth, justice, and righteousness.
Then you would be a blessing to the nations of the world,
and all people would come and praise my name.’ ”
~Jer 4:1-2

Verse of the Day:
“ I see God moving across the deserts from Edom,
the Holy One coming from Mount Paran.
His brilliant splendor fills the heavens,
and the earth is filled with his praise.
His coming is as brilliant as the sunrise.
Rays of light flash from his hands,
where his awesome power is hidden.”
~Hab. 3:3-4

Quote of the Day:
“The professional must learn to be moved and touched emotionally, yet at the same time stand back objectively: I’ve seen a lot of damage done by tea and sympathy.”
~Anthony Storr

Lyrics of the Day: – Jack’s Mannequin Concert Tonight….WITH Anberlin!!
“And out here
I watch the sun circle the earth
The marrows collide in rebirth
In God’s glory praise
The spirit calls out from the caves.
The walls fell and there I lay
Saved.

The walls are caving in
As far as I can see
The walls are caving in
The doors got locked for sure
There’s no one here but me”
~ “Caved”

“I keep waiting for my breath
To come back never
So take what I have left
Patterns in traffic
That pulls just like my heart
Race in the dark
In time to catch you
No one should let you
Go wandering off into the night
You’re not an orphan.
Right there to catch you
I won’t forget you.
Now you’re wandering to the night
But you’re no orphan
You’re not an orphan”
~ “Orphan”

“Yeah I’m alive
But I don’t need a witness
To know that I’ve survived
I’m not looking for forgiveness
Yeah I just need life
I’ll be lying in the dark
As I search for the resolution

And the bars are finally closed
So I try living in the moment
For the moment it just froze
And I felt sick and so alone

I could hear the sound
Of your voice still ringing in my ear
I’m going underground
But you’ll find me anywhere I fear

Yeah I’m alive
But I don’t need a witness
To know that I’ve survived
I’m not looking for forgiveness
Yeah I just need life
I’ll be lying in the dark
As I search for the resolution
I’ll be lying in the dark
As I search for the resolution”
~”Resolution”

Verse of the Day:
“From the four corners of the earth
people are coming to their senses,
are running back to God
Long-lost families are falling on their faces before him.
God has taken charge;
from now on he has the last word.”
~Ps 22:27-28

Quote of the Day:
“God grant me the courage not to give up what I think is right, even though I think it is hopeless.”
~ Admiral Chester W. Nimitz

Lyrics of the Day:
“This flood (this flood) is slowly rising up swallowing the ground
Beneath my feet, Tell me how anybody thinks under this condition so
I’ll swim (I’ll swim) as the water rises up, the sun is sinking down
And now all I can see are the planets in a row
Suggesting it’s best that I slow down

This night’s a perfect shade of
Dark blue (dark blue)
Have you ever been alone in a crowded room when I’m here with you
I said the world could be burning (burning) down
Dark blue (dark blue)
Have you ever been alone in a crowded room well I’m here with you
I said the world could be burning dark blue”
~”Dark Blue” Jack’s Mannequin
