    “I have faith in your eternal, comprehensive plan, and I believe that someday I will be able to see that you have made my life a beautiful tapestry. Right now I can see only sections of the back, with all of its knots and loose ends. But I trust that someday in heaven I will see the front in its entirety—the picture of world history and my own life from your perspective. How amazing that will be! So today give me the grace to interpret unexpected and even unwelcome circumstances as part of your grand plan. When I do, I know I'll be able to embrace both the good and the bad, knowing that you are weaving a beautiful picture with my life.”

  • #6
    “In my mind, a first date really boils down to selling what you have, what you almost have and what you wish you had. First, what you have: wit, humor, intelligence, beauty, confidence. Second, you want to convey that you have ambition and a desire to grow as a person but not talk yourself up too much——basically what I almost have. And third, you have to reveal that you’re human but not a high-maintenance hot mess. This requires being slightly exposed by showing that you don’t have it all together, and there are things that you still want and need, or things you wish you had. Of course, all of this must be accomplished while not being too serious or too silly, and while looking particularly cute. Not to mention being mysterious enough to leave them wanting more. Dang, this dating thing is hard!”
    Megan Carson, A Year of Blind Dates: A Single Girl's Search for "The One"

  • #7
    “My non-negotiable list remains short. I want a man who loves God, others and me. That’s it. If he loves God, he will be kind and respectful and thoughtful. If he loves others, he will be a servant, generous and loyal. If he loves me, he will have a sense of humor (he’ll have no choice if he’s going to deal with me—after 20 blind dates), be responsible and romantic.”
    Megan Carson, A Year of Blind Dates: A Single Girl's Search for "The One"

  • #10
    Kevin Paterson
    “The motive for a Christian marriage is, 'I really want to meet my husband or wife’s needs. I want to be loving and kind to my spouse, and make sure that I am caring for, and meeting his or her needs.' However, kingdom marriage takes the definition of Christian marriage much further——it’s about 'how can the two of us stand side by side and discover why God has put us together and then actually fulfill His purposes.”
    Kevin Paterson, Straight Talk to Christian Singles: Moving from "Hi, how are you?" to "Yes, I do"

  • #11
    Melanie Shankle
    “When I look back on the sixteen years Perry and I have been married, I can see the places where we've made each other better. There are parts of us etched into each other like the rings in the trunk of a tree. We've grown, we've changed, we've been forever marked. And ultimately, we are so much better together than either of us would be on our own.”
    Melanie Shankle, The Antelope in the Living Room: The Real Story of Two People Sharing One Life

    “I’ve drawn this as a circle because the seasons will come and go. Joy always leads to another season of romance . . . which always leads to another season of trouble . . . which always leads to disillusionment . . . which always leads to more joy— if you hang in there.”
    Kurt Bubna

  • #17
    “Comparison is a trap. It will kill our joy. It will rob us of our peace. It makes us act foolish and stupid. It causes dissension and division in the body of Christ. It creates terrible tension in our relationships with others. So here’s what you need to focus on: Let God use you the way he sees fit to do so. Embrace what he is doing in and through your life.”
    Kurt W. Bubna, Epic Grace: Chronicles of a Recovering Idiot

    Dawn Crandall
    “The moon reminds me that God made it just for us. And that back when Jesus lived on the earth, He went to sleep every night, just like me, and He, too, likely looked up at it---at the same exact moon I see every night---from wherever He laid His head. And where did he lay His head, compared to where we lay ours every night? On the dirt and grass of the earth. He took nothing for Himself, and now He provides me with a bed, and a roof, and all these friends, and meals...and this music class.”
    Dawn Crandall, The Bound Heart

    Truman Capote

    Truman Capote

  • #24
    “Time is free, but it's priceless. You can't own it, but you can use it. You can't keep it, but you can spend it. Once you've lost it you can never get it back.”
    Harvey MacKay

  • #25
    “I would hesitate to use the word 'success' in the way many people do. I don't know that I would apply it to what I've done as though I have now reached the ultimate goal. To me success is a continuing thing. It is growth and development. It is achieving one thing and using that as a stepping stone to achieve something else. Success comes as you have confidence in yourself. Self-confidence is built by succeeding, even if the success is small. It is the believing that makes it possible.”
    Walter Knott

    Stephanie Rische
    “All along I'd vaguely assumed the emptiness and the pain meant I was doing something wrong. But maybe it was all just part of the process so something new could be born. First the barrenness, to make space. Then the pain, which is the only way to a birth.”
    Stephanie Rische, I Was Blind (Dating), But Now I See: My Misadventures in Dating, Waiting, and Stumbling into Love

  • #32
    Lisa Wingate
    “Like the beach glass, the wood was more beautiful because of its journey, because of the things it had been through.

    Inside the perfect shells is dim,
    It's through the cracks, the light comes in.”
    Lisa Wingate, The Prayer Box

  • #33
    Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
    “Above all, trust in the slow work of God.”
    Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
