The Power of Words

Words.  Do you fully understand their power?  Can any of us really grasp the mighty force behind the things we say? Do we stop and think before we speak, considering the potency of the words we utter?  ~Joni Eareckson Tada


Don’t forget that a single sentence, spoken at the right moment, can change somebody’s whole perspective on life.  A little encouragement can go a long, long way.  ~Marie T. Freeman

New Opportunities

Those who are fired with an enthusiastic idea and who allow it to take hold and dominate their thoughts find that new worlds open for them.  As long as enthusiasms holds out, so will new opportunities.  ~Norman Vincent Peale


I don’t know about you, but I want to do more than survive life — I want to mount up like the eagle and glide over rocky crags, nest in the tallest of trees, dive for nourishment in the deepest of mountain lakes, and soar on the wings of the wind.   ~ Barbara Johnson

Be Thankful

It is always possible to be thankful for what is given rather than to complain about what is not given.  One or the other becomes a habit of life.   ~Elisabeth Elliot


Forgiveness is the key that unlocks the door of resentment and the handcuffs of hate.  It is a power that breaks the chains of bitterness and the shackles of selfishness.  ~Corrie Ten Boom
