Monday Inspiration: February 2, 2015

By: Gabriela Yareliz

Happy Monday! Freezing rain and snow have made us go slippin’ and slidin’ to school. This week is going to be a challenge. Time to get some inspiration in the veins.

I am constantly trying to communicate something incommunicable, to explain something inexplicable, to tell about something I only feel in my bones and which can only be experienced in those bones.

Franz Kafka, Letters to Milena

Normality is a paved road: It’s comfortable to walk, but no flowers grow on it.

Vincent van Gogh

Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.

Mother Theresa

These are the days that must happen to you.

Walt Whitman

The whole course of human history may depend on a change of heart in a single, solitary, even humble individual. For it is within the soul of the individual that the battle between good and evil is waged and ultimately won or lost.

Henry David Thoreau

It’s part of our human condition: We want to be known. We want to be great.
And God is whispering it to our love-hungry hearts:

You already are. You are known.

You are loved. You are approved.
Look how much.

Ann Voskamp

Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer. Rainer Maria Rilke

People matter, not organizations and systems. People. People. People.
Alex Seeley
Love does not pamper. It prunes and perfects and pursues. It is a sweet embrace and a sanctifying chisel.
J.S. Park
Our prayers may be awkward.
Our attempts may be feeble.
But since the power of prayer
is in the One who hears it
and not in the one who says it,
our prayers do make a difference.
Max Lucado
