Monday Inspiration: March 30, 2015

Saturday was one of those New-York-Minute-adventure days.

Some days fill you with wonder and amazement. The Julie Andrews type wonder.

It was kind of like:

So, I am hoping the rest of the week will either live up to this past weekend or normalize.

“To be loved but not known is comforting but superficial. To be known and not loved is our greatest fear. But to be fully known and truly loved is, well, a lot like being loved by God. It is what we need more than anything. It liberates us from pretense, humbles us out of self-righteousness, and fortifies us for any difficulty life can throw at us.” Timothy Keller, The Meaning of Marriage: Facing the Complexities of Commitment with the Wisdom of God

“It’s better to have all of it for a while, than a piece of it forever.” Monica

“It is wonderful how God works by our hands, and yet His own hand does it all.” Charles Spurgeon

“Here is the world. Beautiful and terrible things will happen. Don’t be afraid.” Frederick Buechner, Beyond Words: Daily Readings in the ABC’s of Faith

“Bravery is a choice, not a feeling.” Jon Acuff

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.” Leo Buscaglia

“Writing is an underestimated art,

you are painting colorful images

in people’s minds by using words

of black and white.” -The Art of Writing

“I do not wish to treat friendships daintily, but with the roughest courage. When they are real, they are not glass threads or frost-work, but the solidest thing we know.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Immediate are the acts of God, more swift than time or motion.” John Milton, Paradise Lost

“When you are in love, you learn to love the things that you once never cared about because the person you love cares about them. This is why Christ told us that the greatest commandment was to love the Lord your God; when we love God, we love others, we love the orphans and the widows. We love the world even when it hates us, we desire to see people healed and love restored.

You want to change the world? Then you need to start loving God in such a way that your entire world changes. That is the beauty of transformational love; it doesn’t just affect you, it affects all those around you.”

T.B. LaBerge// Go Now

Watch out for that signal, when life as you know it ends.”

Expect Miracles.
