From Papa

Whatever your cross, whatever your pain, there will always be sunshine, after the rain.
Perhaps you may stumble, perhaps even fall, But God's always ready, To answer your call.
He knows every heartache, sees every tear, A word from His lips, can calm every fear.
Your sorrows may linger, throughout the night, But suddenly vanish, in dawn's early light.
The Savior is waiting, somewhere above, To give you His grace, and send you His love.
Whatever your cross, whatever your pain, God always sends rainbows, after the rain.

Attitude That Matters

I find that it is not the circumstances in which we are placed, but the spirit in which we meet them....that determines everything.

Being Patient

Be patient till your wings are grown. I fear very much that you are too vehement and headlong in your wishes and attempts to fly. You rush forward, but in vain, for your Master has chained you to your perch, or else it is that your wings are not grown; and this constant excitement exhausts your strength. You must indeed strive to fly, but gently, without growing eager or restless. You resign yourself but, it is always with a BUT; you want this and that, and you struggle to get it. Do you know what you must do? You must be willing not to fly, since your wings are not yet grown. Do not be so eager with your vain desires, do not even be eager in avoiding eagerness; go on quietly in your path--it is a good path.

-St. Francis de Sales

Mercy Me - Bring the Rain

I can count a million times people asking me how I can praise You with all that I've gone through. The question just amazes me; can circumstances possibly change who I forever am in You.
