Spiritual Quotes

If joy were the only emotion God intended us to feel, he could just zap us and take us to heaven right now. Instead, we are left facing a dead end. At such moments God offers strength so that we won’t give in to despair, but be salt in the world, ministering to those around us who are hurting too.

Fourth of July Quotes

The Declaration of Independence was approved this day, July 4, 1776. John Hancock, the first to sign, said: “the price on my head has just doubled.”

Benjamin Franklin signed saying “We must hang together or most assuredly we shall hang separately.”

Of the fifty-six signers: 17 lost their fortunes, 12 had their homes destroyed, 9 fought and died, 5 were arrested as traitors, and 2 lost sons in the War.

As Samuel Adams signed, he said: “We have this day restored the Sovereign to whom all men ought to be obedient. He reigns in heaven and from the rising to the setting of the sun, let His kingdom come.”

Gratitude Quotes – Famous Quotes

Gratitude is the heart of our religion. We pray on rising in the morning for a new day, for the beauty of the gift of life. We have regular prayer meetings, sweat lodges—we call them the little brother—and Sun Dances, the big brother. The whole adds up to a cycle of praise. What else should human beings be if not praising beings?

The Magic of Parents

Parents can plant magic in a child’s mind through certain words spoken with some thrilling quality of voice, some uplift of the heart and spirit.

Psalms 103:1-5

Bless the Lord, O my soul;
And all that is within me, bless His holy Name!
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
And forget not all His benefits.
Who forgives all your iniquities;
Who heals all your diseases;
Who redeems your life from destruction,
Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,
Who satisfies your mouth with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
Psalm 103:1-5

Quotes – Famous Quotes – Drinking from the Saucer

Quotes – Famous Quotes – Drinking from the Saucer
I’ve never made a fortune, and I’ll never make one now.
But it really doesn’t matter, ‘cause I’m happy anyhow.
As I go along my journey, I’m reaping better than I’ve sown.
I’m drinking from the saucer, ‘cause my cup has overflowed

I don’t have a lot of riches, and sometimes the going’s rough.
But while I’ve friends to love, I think I’m rich enough.
I’ll just thank God for blessings that his mercy has bestowed.
I’m drinking from the saucer, ‘cause my cup has overflowed.

If God gives me strength and courage, when the way grows steep and rough
I’ll not ask for other blessings, I’m already blessed enough
May I never be too busy to help bear another’s load
Then I’ll be drinking from the saucer, ‘cause my cup has overflowed.
