but dwelling on it separates close friends.”
~Prov 17:9

Quote of the Day:
“Coach Izzo is more than a basketball coach. He positively impacts everything he touches, much of which is outside the job description of coaching basketball. With traits such as hard work, dedication, perseverance and attention to detail, he’s a symbol of what we should possess as we work together for the recovery of our great state.”
~Mark Hollis

Lyrics of the Day:
“She Wants to breathe
She wants to be where the grass is green
She wants to know how love supposed to be
She wants it better
I want you to let her know
She belongs right here with me
She’s heard it all but I’ll make her see
I make her fall
Make her believe”
~“Each Day Gets Better” by John Legend

Lyrics of the Day:
“Maybe you been wearing the shoes that someone else is wearing now
Maybe you’ve been swearing forever might have already run out
You can’t love yourself at the expense of someone else
You can’t hide a liar from the truth
Love is lookin’ for you,
Yeah, love is lookin’ for you

I’ve been looking for you
Baby I’ve been lookin…..
I’ve been looking for you”

Verse of the Day:
“I was so foolish and ignorant—
I must have seemed like a senseless animal to you.
Yet I still belong to you;
you hold my right hand.
You guide me with your counsel,
leading me to a glorious destiny.”
~Ps 73:22-24

Poem of the Day:
“Daughters of Time, the hypocritic Days,
Muffled and dumb like barefoot dervishes,
And marching single in an endless file,
Bring diadems and fagots in their hands.
To each they offer gifts after his will,
Bread, kingdom, stars, and sky that holds them all.

I, in my pleached garden, watched the pomp,
Forgot my morning wishes, hastily
Took a few herbs and apples, and the Day
Turned and departed silent. I, too late,
Under her solemn fillet saw the scorn.”
~“Days” by Ralph Waldo Emerson

Lyrics of the Day:
“Then there was rain
The sky wore a veil of gold and green
At night it was the bright of the moon with me
Time is just floating away

Then there was rain
The sound foundations are crumbling
Through the ground comes a bit of a-tumbling
And time was just floating away
We can watch it and stay
And we can listen”
~ “Rainy Day” by Coldplay

04/10…of the day

Verse of the Day:
“I waited patiently for the Lord to help me,
and he turned to me and heard my cry.
He lifted me out of the pit of despair,
out of the mud and the mire.
He set my feet on solid ground
and steadied me as I walked along.
He has given me a new song to sing,
a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see what he has done and be amazed.
They will put their trust in the Lord.”
~Ps 40:1-3

Quote of the Day:
“I can not even imagine where I would be today were it not for that handful of friends who have given me a heartful of joy.”
~ Charles R. Swindoll

Lyrics of the Day:
“Say you’re sorry
That face of an angel comes out
Just when you need it to
As I pace back and forth all this time
‘Cause
I honestly believed in you
Holdin’ on,
The days drag on
Stupid girl
I should have known, I should have known

That I’m not a princess
This ain’t a fairytale
I’m not the one you’ll sweep off her feet
Lead her up the stairwell
This ain’t Hollywood,
This is a small town
I was a dreamer before you went and let me down
Now its too late for you and your White Horse,
To come around.”
~ “White Horse”  by Taylor Swift

12/05…of the day

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
this?

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”
