If I stand, let me stand on the promise that you will pull me through.
And if I can’t, let me fall on the grace that first brought me to you.
And if I sing, let me sing for the joy that has born in me these songs.
And if I weep let it be as a man who is longing for his home.

 -Rich Mullins

-Jack London

All excellent things are as difficult as they are rare.


With God a thing is never too good to be true; it is too good not to be true.

-Oswald Chambers
