ancient rhymes and midnight calls,
starry nights and ice cream cones,
pleasant dreams and water falls
setting suns and peaceful ponds...
-my seasoned heart's inevitably found
you're the one i most adore

-Worry is the interest we pay on tomorrow's troubles.
-If you find yourself loving any pleasure better than your prayers, any book better than the Bible, any house better than the house of God, any table better than the Lord's table, any person better than Christ, any indulgence better than the hope of heaven- take alarm!
-The storms of life no more indicate the absence of God than clouds indicate the absence of the sun.
-A victorious Christian life is not a superior brand of Christianity reserved for the elite of the elect. It is the normal Christian life for every Christian.
-Real love stories never have endings.
-One Christian who has been tempted is worth a thousand who haven't.
-Formula for handling people:
1. Listen to the other person's story.
2. Listen to the other person's full story.
3. List to the other person's story first.
-Everything that irritates us about others, can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.
-Nothing so tends to mask the face of God as religion; it can be a substitute for God himself.
-A man came to a guru and challenged him, 'I will give you an orange if you can show me where God is.' The guru answered, 'I will give you two oranges if you can show me where God is not.'
-I venture to say that the greatest earthly blessing that God can give to any of us is health, with the exception of sickness. Sickness has frequently been of more use to the saints of God than health has.
C. H. Spurgeon
-To do just the opposite is also a form of imitation.
-There are many wonderfulthings that will never be doneif you do not do them.
Charles D. Gill
-I believe Satan to exist for two reasons: first, the Bible says so; and second, I’ve done business with him.
D. L. Moody
-Our pride is disgusted at our faults and we mistake this disgust for true repentance.
-Two young men were discussing the account of the resurrection of Jesus. They agreed that such a thing was impossible. Seeing an old Christian gentleman approaching, one of them asked him, "Tell us, why are you so sure that Jesus rose from the dead?" The old gentleman said, "Well, for one thing, I was talking with Him this morning."
-A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs, jolted by every pebble in the road.
Henry Ward Beecher
-The saint is hilarious when he is crushed with difficulties because the thing is so ludicrously impossible to anyone but God.
-My life helps to paint my neighbor’s picture of God.
-A 19th-century preacher was once asked to explain the doctrine of election. He said: "Well, brethren, it is this way: The Lord is always voting for a man, and the devil is always voting against him; then the man himself votes, and that breaks the tie.
-We cannot get away from God; though we can ignore Him.
