Thursday Thirteen -Quotes

Sometimes you read something or someone speaks and it touches your heart (or punches you in the guts). These are some quotes that have reached out to me.

1. Life isn't about how to survive the storm,
But how to dance in the rain.-unknown

2. Hillary Clinton says it takes a village to raise a child. I've seen the village; and I don't want it raising my child." -unknown

3. Once in a while in the middle of ordinary life, love gives you a fairytale.-unknown

4."Fair is whatever God wants to do." -Reuben, Peace Like A River

5. Let me not be blind with privilege. Give me eyes to seek the pain. Let the blessing You've poured out on me. Not be spent on me in vain. Let this life be used for change. ~Starfield

6. It matters not if the world has heard. Or approves or understands. The only applause we're meant to seek is that of nail scarred hands.

7. Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten
-Natasha Bedingfield

8. Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God. - Corrie ten Boom

When a train goes through a tunnel and it gets dark, you don't throw away the ticket and jump off. You sit still and trust the engineer. - Corrie ten Boom

10. A man who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back on the crowd.-Max Lucado

12. Children seldom misquote. In fact, they usually repeat word for word what you shouldn't have said. -unknown

I love you sooooo much! -Hudson Scott (my son)

So many great quotes! Corrie ten Boom, Max Lucado, & Stormie Omartian have been huge in helping me understand more about God and what faith in Him looks like. Oh how I am thankful for them and their writing!
