Chloe Rattray
“People aren’t always what you want them to be. Sometimes they disappoint you or let you down, but you have to give them a chance first. You can’t just meet someone and expect them to be everything you’re looking for and then be angry when they’re not every hope and aspiration you projected onto them. It’s foolish to believe that someone will be what you imagine them to be. And sometimes, when you give them a chance, they turn out to be better than you imagined. Different, but better.”
Chloe Rattray, Sacré Noir

C. JoyBell C.

Karen Kingsbury
“I tell of hearts and souls and dances...
Butterflies and second chances;
Desperate ones and dreamers bound,
Seeking life from barren ground,
Who suffer on in earthly fate
The bitter pain of agony hate,
Might but they stop and here forgive
Would break the bonds to breathe and live
And find that God in goodness brings
A chance for change, the hope of wings
To rest in Him, and self to die
And so become a butterfly.”
Karen Kingsbury, Oceans Apart

better than just one.”

You wish you could’ve learned to love yourself sooner. Well you know what? You didn’t. And that’s just something you’re going to have to learn to deal with. But just because you didn’t do it sooner, doesn’t mean you can’t start now.”

Chimnese Davids
“Not  everyone  is  chosen;  some  are  called.  When you  are  being  called  into  any  assignment  you  have to  go  through  some  difficult  tests.  Tests  that  are  not supposed  to  harm  you.  But  sometimes  people don’t  come  back  from  the  heavy  blows  that  they are  facing  in  their  lives.  I  for  one  never  realized  why I’ve  had  to  go  through  such  turmoil  of  being rejected,  abandoned  and  going  through  hardships being  trapped  in  a  lifestyle  that  was  not  of  God.  ”
Chimnese Davids, Redeeming Soul

Chimnese Davids
“I  humbly  seek  you  within  the  masses as  you  stepped  before  me,  I  believe  you   that  you  love  me  and  because  of  that   I  can  say  this:  There  is  no  greater  love   than  this.  No  other  love  can  separate  me  from  you. There  is  no  other  love  that  can  hold  me. Your  love  is  forever,  eternally  great, because  you  have  loved  me  before  I  came  to  be.  - No Greater Love”
Chimnese Davids, No Greater Love Than This
