In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.
And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger – something better, pushing right back.
Just a simple little hymn to praise our Heavenly Father on this Tuesday evening. :)
this is amazing! I love this song and you sang it so beautifully!!
I heard Payphone by Maroon 5 today in the car and it dawned on me that I like your singing of it better!! Miss you and hope your school year is starting well!!!
"God has infinite attention… You’re as much alone with Him as if you were the only thing He’d ever created."
"I looked at everyone and wondered where they came from, and who they missed, and what they were sorry for."
"So, I love you because the entire universe conspired to help me find you."
Two of my three brothers and me in front of the old Detroit Train Station. My brother Mike thinks we look like we are in a band! This vacation was a really great one this summer. :) #summer2k14
"Here’s my heart, Lord
Take and seal it
Deal it for thy courts above"
I can never get enough of this song! This might need to be my theme for the school year!
The Hebrew word timshel — Thou mayest — that gives a choice. It might be the most important word in the world. That says the way is open. That throws it right back on a man. For if Thou mayest — it is also true that Thou mayest not… Thou mayest makes a man great, that gives him stature with the gods, for in his weakness and his filth … he has still the great choice. He can choose his course and fight it through and win.
John Steinbeck, East of Eden
"What is the feeling when you’re driving away from people and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing? - it’s the too-huge world vaulting us, and it’s good-by. But we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies."
"A man can no more diminish God’s glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word ‘darkness’ on the walls of his cell."
