"Then, in the sweetest of movements, the Lord collected my dust & breathed life in again
as He had done so many times before, and with eyes of lightning and vocal chords of thunder,
He whispered: Child of mine, burn no more."

"This is for the two year olds who cannot be understood because they speak half english and half God."

"Most of us are still here, healing slowly and imperfectly. Some days are way too long. And I hate that, I want to say. I would much prefer that God have a magic wand and not just a raggedy love army of helpers. Mr. Rogers’ mother told him when he was a boy, and tragedy was unfolding that seemed to defy meaning, "look to the helpers." That is the secret of life."

- Anne Lamott

“ A worshiping church won’t just happen by itself. It must start with a leader who places high value on his or her own personal worship life, and then infuses that value into the culture he or she is creating. When it comes to spiritual leadership, there is no substitute for a healthy, personal worship life. How often do you talk to God, not because you need something, but simply out of friendship? How often do you spend time in the Word, not for the sake of public ministry, but for the sake of personal renewal? We cannot lead people where we are not going ourselves. There is a big difference between a travel agent who merely points the way and a tour guide who leads the way. ”

Sometimes my mind thinks in poetry.
Sometimes in photos.
Sometimes in letters to people.
Sometimes in retrospect,
And sometimes futuristically.
Sometimes in hope,
And sometimes in defeat.
Sometimes in prayers.
Sometimes in songs,
And sometimes in stories.
Sometimes inward,
And sometimes outward.
Sometimes my mind tries to understand
incomprehensible things.

“ In order to move on, you must understand why you felt what you did and why you no longer need to feel it. ”
