I do love words! This page is dedicated solely to those little jewels that I come across and hold dear to my heart. They might be a Bible verse, a random quote from a book, or just something spoken from everyday life. But read, turn the words over in your mind and enjoy!

“What I want to do I don’t do. What I do, I don’t want to do. I am broken, mend me. Over backwards, bend me. Through your love you send me.” Big Tent Revival

“Many things–such as loving, going to sleep, or behaving unaffectedly–are done worst when we try hardest to do them.” -C.S. Lewis

“Exercise produced endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don’t shoot their husbands.” Elle Woods, Legally Blond

“I really don’t think I need buns of steel.  I’d be happy with buns of cinnamon.”  ~Ellen DeGeneres
A flock of sheep that leisurely pass by
One after one; the sound of rain, and bees
Murmuring; the fall of rivers, winds and seas,
Smooth fields, white sheets of water, and pure sky -
I’ve thought of all by turns, and still I lie
~William Wordsworth, “To Sleep”

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle. -Plato

Duty makes us do things well, but love makes us do them beautifully. ~Phillips Brooks

John Eldridge- “We do not always get what we want, but that doesn’t mean we no longer want. It means we stay awake to the unmet longing and ache. Wait there. Invite Jesus to come, there.
And he will come. Not always to satisfy us by giving us what we want, but to come himself; to meet us with his very person and to satisfy us with himself.”
