“It's amazing the things you realize
when you lose someone:
you get mad at yourself for not
saying the things you could've a million times,
you take for granted the days
spent doing nothing when
you could have been with them.
Anyone can be taken,
at any time in our lives,
but we always wait until they're gone to say
the things we never had the courage to before.”
Melody Carlson, Finding Out Who You Really Are

“I’ll never be lonely
Even if I am alone
For I've a precious Savior
Who’ll come to take me home.
But while I’m here
His servant I will be
With one foot on earth
And one in eternity.
And I’ll gather His crops
To populate His land
And if I feel weary
I’ll cling tighter to his hand.”
Melody Carlson

“I welcome each new day with a hopeful expectancy that I, too, will rise above the ordinary. For I am not content to live a merely "normal" life or settle for an average existence. No, I am destined for more--much, much more.”
Melody Carlson, Finding Alice
