Wisdom From The World

“Love withers with predictability; its very essence is surprise and amazement. To make love a prisoner of the mundane is to take its passion and lose it forever. – Leo F. Buscaglia

“Love is full of surprises and serendipity. Being open to unexpected turns in the road is an important part of success. If you try to plan ever step, you may miss those wonderful twists and turns. Just find your next adventure. Do it well. Enjoy it and then, not now, think about what comes next.” – Condoleezza Rice

“The best way to cheer yourself up is to try to cheer someone else up.” – Mark Twain

“The greatest test is when you are able to bless someone else while you are going through your own storm.” Anonymous

Wisdom From The Word

The God of the universe is a God of creativity, surprise and love.

“26-28 God spoke: “Let us make human beings in our image, make them reflecting our nature
So they can be responsible for the fish in the sea,
the birds in the air, the cattle,
And, yes, Earth itself,
and every animal that moves on the face of Earth.”
God created human beings;
he created them godlike,
Reflecting God’s nature.
He created them male and female.
God blessed them:
“Prosper! Reproduce! Fill Earth! Take charge!
Be responsible for fish in the sea and birds in the air,
for every living thing that moves on the face of Earth.”
29-30 Then God said, “I’ve given you
every sort of seed-bearing plant on Earth
And every kind of fruit-bearing tree,
given them to you for food.
To all animals and all birds,
everything that moves and breathes,
I give whatever grows out of the ground for food.”
Every sort of seed-bearing plant on Earth
And every kind of fruit-bearing tree,
given them to you for food.
To all animals and all birds,
everything that moves and breathes,
I give whatever grows out of the ground for food.”
And there it was.
31 God looked over everything he had made;
it was so good, so very good!
It was evening, it was morning—
Day Six.” Genesis 1:26-31 (The Message)

Keep Me Real, Lord!

“Lord, you have surprised me with love, joy, and creativity. Help me to love those in my life in such a way that they feel my love and that it brings them joy. Help me to be creative in my expression of love to my mate.”
