" Every breath of mine is His divine gift, every pleasant morning His gentle reminder of His abundant love, The humble family-surrounding where I was born & raised was His great gift; so is the happy family he blessed me to raise now: In this sea of life He protects me so that I don't drown when the might tides come up. Like the mother-hen that secures her chicks, He keeps me safe from all adversities. So lowly, that I am not worthy to look up to His Heavenly abode to praise him; but as I close my eyes and offer my devotion and my eyes become moist, I can feel His wonderful touch... Blessed be His Holy name for ever, for ever, for ever... "

" The grace of God means something like: Here is your life. You might never have been, but you are because the party wouldn't have been complete without you. Here is the world. Beautiful and terrible things will happen. Don't be afraid. I am with you. Nothing can ever separate us. It's for you I created the universe. I love you. There's only one catch. Like any other gift, the gift of grace can be yours only if you'll reach out and take it. Maybe being able to reach out and take it is a gift too."
Frederick Buechner

" What if we truly believed there is a God - a beneficent order to things, a force that's holding things together without our conscious control?

" I never met a person, I don't care what his condition, in whom I could not see possibilities. I don't care how much a man may consider himself a failure, I believe in him, for he can change the thing that is wrong in his life anytime he is prepared and ready to do it. When he develops the desire, he can take away from his life the thing that is defeating it. The capacity for reformation and change lies within."
Preston Bradley
