Verse of the Day:
“For you, God, have put my life back together.”
Ps 4:8

Excerpt of the Day:
“What you do.  How you dress.  The way you love someone and how you talk. Your smile and your personality.  What you believe in and all your dreams.  The way you drink your tea.  How you decorate your home or party.  Your grocery list.  The food you make.  How your writing looks and the way you feel.  Your Life Is ART.”
~Helena Bonham Carter

07/16…of the day

#1 – Took some time off from “of the day” hope you understand.
#2 –
This week my Grammy lost her battle with Parkinson’s.  The women I knew has not been in this world for a while, she was merely a shell of that women. But now she is gone.  There is a lot of grace in it, but also finality to it.

She taught me what it meant to live young no matter your age as in, 6 point speeding tickets at 68, among many other things. She modeled what it meant to run after Jesus with everything that you have and that it’s a relationship based in love not a bunch of religious rules. It’s crazy to think that when I meet my husband he won’t get to try her roast chicken, which is one of the foods that made me want to become a chef and it changed me, and I won’t be able to let her teach my kids how to make the perfect coffee.

One of the biggest and most lasting things was that she was the only woman who showed me at a very young age that being a girl and loving sports passionately was ok. Example: During baseball season she always went to as many home games as she could and for away games she LITERALLY had a TV in EVERY room in her apartment (including bathrooms, and this was in the early 90’s) so she wouldn’t miss a play.  I screamed and jumped up and down with her when John Elway won us our Super Bowls.  And there are so many other memories.  So ultimately I am here loving the beautiful game the way that I do, still playing, still investing because of her.

Lyrics of the Day:
“I know all the lines to say
the part I’m expected to play
but in the reflection I am worlds away

And all of those painful lessons you’ve had to learn
you gotta use them now or never

When everyone’s waiting
it makes it harder to hear what my heart keeps saying
Turn it off, I wanna turn it all off
But everyone’s waiting
I hear that answers appear when you just stand still
but make it all, how do you make it all stop
when everyone’s waiting?”
~“Everyone’s Waiting” by Missy Higgins

Verse of the Day:
But he knows the way that I take; when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold ”
~ Job 23:10

Quote of the Day:

Excerpt of the Day:
“The point isn’t for God to make His will plain. His will isn’t the main objective. He is the main objective. He wants you to discover Him above all else.

God isn’t the shortcut to your best life. He is your best life.
God doesn’t want to give you the guide for your life. He wants to be your Guide.”
~”His Will Isn’t the Point” by Steven Furtick

Verse of the Day:
“Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts ”
~Col 3:15

Quote of the Day:
“Anything done, for the good or not, that is done without love is absolutely meaningless. A life without love only leads to bankruptcy.”
~Jill Loyden

Lyrics of the Day:
“I’m all for believing, if you can reveal, the true colours within,
And say you will be there for me to hold,
When the faith grows old (I’m all for believing)
And life turns cold, (I’m all for believing)
When the faith grows old, (I’m all for believing) and life turns cold.
So if you’re cold I will stay, maybe fate will guide the way.
I believe in what I see and baby we were meant to be,
~“All For Believing” by Missy Higgins

Verse of the Day:
“Save me, God, for the water has risen to my neck.
I have sunk in deep mud, and there is no footing; I have come into deep waters, and a flood sweeps over me.
I am weary from my crying; my throat is parched. My eyes fail, looking for my God.”
~Ps 69:1-3

Quote of the Day:
“Hope is a song in a weary throat.”
