A Quote That I Need To Remember

I pray to you, O Lord, to give me a ready sympathy with others, that I may look at things from their standpoint and see myself as they see me.

"if your heart desires, for your top ten post you can leave a link to my blog so that all of your followers can check out all the other links here, however you don't have to if you really really don't want to {but it would be nice so we could all share.} also, if you don't want to make a top ten post, you can always leave your ten favorite songs in a comment.

ready, set, go!"

Feel free to post your own top ten and the put a link over at her blog.
Any way, here are my "top" ten:
 Crucified by Salvador

Hiding Place by Steven Curtis Chapman

David Danced by Salvador

Live Out Loud by Steven Curtis Chapman

I Need Thee Every Hour by Fernando Ortega

Little Bit Of Love by Rebecca St James

Psalm 139 by Sons of Korah (I also like this one by Rebecca St James)

You Put This Love In My Heart by Keith Green

Rescue the Perishing by Cindy Foote

Happy Day by Tim Hughes

(Bonus song: Give Me Jesus by Fernando Ortega.... Of course I could have dozens of bonus songs and all of them would be hymns. I love hymns so much that they need their own list. One site I use with my everyday is They have the music and the lyrics to nearly every hymn. So it's easy to sing along to because they play the tune for you. (Organ, bells or piano!) Another thing I like is the "Play a Random Hymn" button; it's a great way to learn new hymns!)

It's Been a Little Quiet

       I know I haven't posted in a while, but being a normal human being I have an excuse for that. (This blog post doesn't starting off sounding to good...) =)
       It's something I would say is a pretty good excuse, but it may not be that good.
WARNING: I usually make short stories long.
       I was working in Missouri. My dad, one of my sisters, and I were helping my grandma's sister (my great aunt) move. She's coming to live with us for a little while because my grandmother (her sister) isn't well.
       We worked long days and were busy all day. It was a very long drive to MO. However, the drive back was much worse. The vehicle we were in broke down, but there is a catch! Before our car broke down my great aunt said she was hungry and asked us to turn off at the next stop. (We were on a toll rode with only three stops, this was the only stop that vehicles could come on from both sides.) Right when we we about to park the back end of the vehicle jerked really hard, as if we hit something going fast. We began to pull in to the parking space even slower and it happened again. There was nothing in the road.
       My dad knew that it was something in the gears and we were able to call a tow truck. We were stuck in another state between MO and our home for about two days the we finished our long drive.
       I really want to point out something that probably isn't very clear to you because of how I wrote out the story. God saved us through a hidden miracle. My great aunt said she wasn't hungry after we pulled into the rest stop. But, if she hadn't asked to stop off there, we would have been going eighty miles an hour when that vehicle jerked! We may have died or wrecked, or who knows what! Not only that but that particular stop was perfect for a tow truck to come into, because that was the only stop that was open on both sides.
       When we got home *huge sigh of relief* my sister added that if we had been driving all that day, we might have had to drive through the big storm that came through. Praise the Lord for His protection!
       My next post is going to be on driving, but for now I'm exhausted...ZZzzZZzzzzz

Pure Religion Before God -Part III (Quotes)

"Children are great imitators. So give them something great to imitate."(unknown)

"Children are the hands by which we take hold of heaven." -Henry Beecher

"An aware parent loves all children he or she interacts with for you are a caretaker for those moments in time." -Doc Childre

"There can be no keener revelation of a society's soul than the way in which it treats its children." -Nelson Mandela

"No one has yet fully realized the wealth of sympathy, kindness and generosity hidden in the soul of a child. The effort of every true education should be to unlock that treasure." -Emma Goldman

"Why is it that a child's death amounts to a tragedy, but the death of millions is merely a statistic?" -Patrick McDonald

"If I could relive my life, I would devote my entire ministry to reaching children for God!" -Dwight L. Moody

"Let us be the ones who say we do not accept that a child dies every three seconds simply because he does not have the drugs you and I have. Let us be the ones to say we are not satisfied that your place of birth determines your right to life. Let us be outraged, let us be loud, let us be bold." -Brad Pitt

"Every child you encounter is a divine appointment." -Wess Stafford

"Nothing that you have not given away will ever truly be yours." C.S. Lewis

"When a poor person dies of hunger, it has not happened because God did not take care of him or her. It has happened because neither you nor I wanted to give that person what he or she needed." -Mother Teresa

"The Bible insists that the best test of a nation's righteousness is how it treats the poorest and most vulnerable in its midst." -Jim Wallis

"It's the greatest poverty to decide that a child must die so that you may live as you wish." -Mother Teresa

"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good people to do nothing." -Edmund Burke

"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter." -Martin Luther King Jr.

The Last quote I have is from a tombstone inscription in England. "For the Lord Jesus Christ's sake, Do all the good you can, To all the people you can, In all the ways you can, As long as ever you can."

Verse For The Week

I've decided that it would be nice if every Monday I posted one verse (or maybe two) to start the week with. I don't know how long I'll do this, or how consistant I'll be, but I hope you are encouraged by reading the verse that I felt I should post. :)

Give Away!

For Melanie's give away, she has made these two hats.

I think my little sis would love the first for her birthday! ;)
