Verse of the Day:
“Set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.”
~ 1 Peter 1:13

Quote of the Day:
“The difference between successful people and very successful people is that very successful people say “no” to almost everything.”
~Warren Buffett

Excerpt of the Day:
“The foundation of effective leadership is character. Nothing else has more impact. Nothing else has greater reach. And nothing else can make up for its lack—not education, experience, talent, or contacts.

For each of us, there comes a moment—perhaps several such moments—when we don’t have time to think. We can only react. And we do so out of our character.
What we do flows out of who we are. Being precedes doing. How we respond comes as a result of all the choices we have made throughout our lives.
Our choices become our actions. Our actions become our habits. Our habits become our character.”
~ “The Reflex of Character” by Michael Hyatt

Verse of the Day:
“Just then a hand touched me and lifted me, still trembling, to my hands and knees. And the man said to me, “Daniel, you are very precious to God, so listen carefully to what I have to say to you. Stand up, for I have been sent to you.” When he said this to me, I stood up, still trembling.”
~Daniel 10:10-11

Lyrics of the Day:
“I’m movin’ on
At last I can see life has been patiently waiting for me
And I know there’s no guarantees, but I’m not alone
There comes a time in everyone’s life
When all you can see are the years passing by
And I have made up my mind that those days are gone.
I’m movin’ on”
~ “I’m Movin’ On” by Rascal Flatts

Verse of the Day:
“If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking. 6 But when you ask him, be sure that your faith is in God alone. Do not waver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind.”
~James 1:5-6

Poem of the Day:
“Have you ever watched kids
On a merry-go-round?

Or listened to the rain
Slapping on the ground?

Ever followed
a butterfly’s erratic flight?

Or gazed at the sun
into the fading night?

You better slow down.

Don’t dance so fast.

Time is short.

The music won’t last.

Do you run
through each day
On the fly?

When you ask “How are you?”
Do you hear the reply?

When the day is done
Do you lie in your bed

With the next hundred chores
Running through your head?

You’d better slow down

Don’t dance so fast.

Time is short.

The music won’t last.

Ever told your child,
We’ll do it tomorrow?

And in your haste,
Not see his sorrow?

Ever lost touch,
Let a good friendship die

Cause you never had time
To call and say,’Hi’

You’d better slow down.

Don’t dance so fast.

Time is short.

The music won’t last.

When you run so fast to get somewhere
You miss half the fun of getting there.

When you worry and hurry
through your day,

It is like an unopened gift….
Thrown away.

Life is not a race.
Do take it slower

Hear the music
Before the song is over.”
~“Slowdance” by Anon.

Verse of the Day:
“If your heart is broken, you’ll find God right there;
if you’re kicked in the gut, he’ll help you catch your breath.”
~Ps 34:18

Poem of the Day:
“To me, every hour of the light and dark is a miracle,
Every cubic inch of space is a miracle,
Every square yard of the surface of the earth is spread with the
same,
Every foot of the interior swarms with the same;
Every spear of grass–the frames, limbs, organs, of men and women,
and all that concerns them,
All these to me are unspeakably perfect miracles.”
~“Miracles” by Walt Whitman

Lyrics of the Day:
“You find your faith that’s been lost and shaken
You take back what’s been taken
Get on your knees and dig down deep
You can do what you think is impossible
Keep on believing, don’t give in
It’ll come and make you whole again
It always will, it always does
Love is unstoppable”
~ “Unstoppable” by Rascal Flatts

01/15…of the day

Verse of the Day:
God’s words are pure words,
Pure silver words refined seven times
In the fires of his word–kiln,
Pure on earth as well as in heaven.
~Ps 12:6

Quote of the Day:
“As far as I’m concerned, if something is so complicated that you can’t explain it in 10 seconds, then it’s probably not worth knowing anyway.”
~ Calvin, of Calvin and Hobbs

Lyrics of the Day:
“Sarabeth is scared to death
To hear what the doctor will say
She hasn’t been well
Since the day that she fell
And the bruise, it just won’t go away
So she sits and she waits with her mother and dad
Flips through an old magazine
Till the nurse with a smile
Stands at the door
And says will you please come with me

Sarabeth is scared to death
Cause the doctor just told her the news
Between the red cells and white
Something’s not right
But we’re gonna take care of you

Six chances in ten it won’t come back again
With the therapy were gonna try
It’s just been approved
It’s the strongest there is
I think we caught it in time

Sarabeth closes her eyes
And she dreams she’s dancing
Around and around without any cares
And her very first love is holding her close
And the soft wind is blowing her hair

Sarabeth is scared to death
As she sits holding her mom
Cause it would be a mistake
For someone to take
A girl with no hair to the prom

For, just this morning right there on her pillow
Was the cruelest of any surprise
And she cried when she gathered it all in her hands
The proof that she couldn’t deny

Sarabeth closes her eyes
And she dreams she’s dancing
Around and around without any cares
And her very first love was holding her close
And the soft wind is blowing her hair

Its quarter to seven
That boys at the door
And her daddy ushers him in
And when he takes off his cap
They all start to cry
Cause this mornin where his hair had been
Softly she touches just skin

And they go dancin
Around and around without any cares
And her very first true love is holding her close
And for a moment she isn’t scared”
~Rascal Faltts “Skin”
