Quote of the Day:
“Redemption is about our Creator processing the wounds of our lives, the scars on our faces, the evils we have endured and turning them into an even grander story of grace. That means God takes what should have destroyed us and does more than fix it—He redeems it.

Lyrics of the Day:
“She knows the world is just her stage
And so she’ll never misbehave
She gives thanks for what they gave her
Man, they practically made her
Into a mmm

She’s the one that stumbles when she talks about
The seven foreign films that she’s checked out
Such a fortunate fool
She’s just too good to be true
She’s such a fortunate fool ”
~“Fortunate Fool” by Jack Johnson

Lyrics of the Day:

When the water is still,

Please say you will.

Verse of the Day:
Lord, don’t hold back your tender mercies from me.
Let your unfailing love and faithfulness always protect me.
For troubles surround me—
too many to count!
My sins pile up so high
I can’t see my way out.
They outnumber the hairs on my head.
I have lost all courage..”
~Ps 40:11-12

Lyrics of the Day:
“And this heartbreak world
Of just imagine
With its tired talk of better days
And this heartbreak world
Where nothing matters
Come on lets make this dream that’s barely half awake come true

Let’s move out of Los Angles
Just drive until this summer gives
And forget the lies we use to live
’cause we’re gone”
~ “Heartbreak World” by Matt Nathanson

Verse of the Day:
“How long, O LORD ? Will you forget me forever?
How long will you hide your face from me
How long must I wrestle with my thoughts
and every day have sorrow in my heart?
How long will my enemy triumph over me?
Look on me and answer, O LORD my God.
Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death;”
~ Ps 13: 1-3

Quote of the Day:
“Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swaps of the not quite, the not yet, and the not at all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists. It is real. It is possible. It is yours..”

Lyrics of the Day
” I know it’s there
— burnin’ to shine out
I know it’s there
Itchin’, scratchin’
Just a shout
Buried treasure safe
Waiting for perfect reason
Perfect ways,
When were you there to wipe that furrow from your brow
Can’t get no where half way
So I’ll be here till you —–
Till you say that you love me
That you love me
Cause’ I left — before everything i gained
You’ve shown too many other ways for me to call in vain
This is just a stupid secret shared too many times
It’s kinda like this thing that I would let go if I’m wise
Sorda like a warfield that sometimes makes me cry
You look just like someone i know but can not tell a lie
Can not say , Can not say
That you love me , That you love

I’m better off — Silence , Silence”
~Kate Earl “Silence”

Verse of the Day:
“Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.”
~Ps. 37:4

Quote of the Day:
“Sometimes your nearness takes my breath away and all the things I want to say can find no voice.  Then in silence, I can only hope, my eyes will speak my heart.”

Lyrics of the Day:
“I waited ’til I saw the sun
I don’t know why I didn’t come
I left you by the house of fun
I don’t know why I didn’t come
I don’t know why I didn’t come

When I saw the break of day
I wished that I could fly away
Instead of kneeling in the sand
Catching teardrops in my hand

My heart is drenched in wine
But you’ll be on my mind

Out across the endless sea
I would die in ecstasy
But I’ll be a bag of bones
Driving down the road along

My heart is drenched in wine
But you’ll be on my mind

Something has to make you run
I don’t know why I didn’t come
I feel as empty as a drum
I don’t know why I didn’t come”
~ Norah Jones, “Don’t Know Why”
