Verse of the Day:
“Now that I have been so bold as to speak to the Lord, though I am nothing but dust and ashes …”
~Genesis 18:27

Excerpt of the Day:
“Success doesn’t happen in a day, it happens in decades. We are in the exact spot we are supposed to be, it just looks nothing like the picture on the front of the brochure. All the time, effort, struggle and strain we’re experiencing is not the roadblock to success, it is the stairwell that takes us to the view we were praying for all along.”
~ “7 Cures for Your Quarter-Life Crisis” by Paul Angone

Lyrics of the Day:
“But I only need turn around to face the light
And decide flight or fight
Cause I have sent for a warrior
From on my knees, make me a Hercules”
~ “Hercules” by Sara Bareilles

Verse of the Day:
“When doubts filled my mind,
your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer.”
~Ps. 94:19

Quote of the Day:
“Religion is not the solution. Religion without Jesus is just self-righteousness. Freedom from oppression of Europe, Israel became the oppressor. Delivered from persecution, Muslims became persecutors. Abused spouses and children often go on the abuse spouses and children. It is a cliche, but it’s still true: hurt people, unless they are healed, hurt people.”
~Mosab Hassan Yousef in “Son of Hamas

Lyrics of the Day:
“Some people they call me crazy
For falling in love with you
They can take me and lock me away baby
’cause there’s nothing those bars can do

Through the shake of an earthquake
I will never fall
That’s how strong my love is
Like a ship through the storm
We can risk it all
That’s how strong my love is ”
~“That’s how strong my love is” by Alicia Keys

Verse of the Day:
“ Anyone who sets himself up as “religious” by talking a good game is self-deceived. This kind of religion is hot air and only hot air. Real religion, the kind that passes muster before God the Father, is this: Reach out to the homeless and loveless in their plight, and guard against corruption from the godless world.”
~James 1:26-27

Quote of the Day:
“No matter how deep in the doldrums I may be, spending an afternoon in  a perfumed cloud as I roll and shape, cut and dice, invariably reminds me how lucky I am to be alive”
~Ruth Reichl, “Note from the Editor” in Gourmet Magazine Feb 09

Lyrics of the Day:
“I’m holding on your rope,
Got me ten feet off the ground
I’m hearin what you say but I just can’t make a sound
You tell me that you need me
Then you go and cut me down, but wait
You tell me that you’re sorry
Didn’t think I’d turn around, and say…

It’s too late to apologize, it’s too late
I said it’s too late to apologize, it’s too late

I’d take another chance, take a fall
Take a shot for you
And I need you like a heart needs a beat
But it’s nothin new
I loved you with a fire red-
Now it’s turning blue, and you say…
“Sorry” like the angel heaven let me think was you
But I’m afraid…

It’s too late to apologize, it’s too late
I said it’s too late to apologize, it’s too late”
~ “Apologize”  by One Republic
