“Does that mean,” asked Mack, “that all roads will lead to you?”
“Not at all,”, smiled Jesus as he reached for the door handle to the shop. “Most roads don’t lead anywhere. What it does mean is that I will travel any road to find you.” (WM. Paul Young, The Shack)
“You don’t think your way into a new kind of living. You live your way into a new kind of thinking.” (Henri Nouwen)

(I used to hate doing dishes until I read this on a plaque on my aunt’s kitchen wall)
Thank God For Dirty Dishes
Thank God for dirty dishes;
They have a tale to tell.
While others may go hungry,
We’re eating very well
With home, health, and happiness,
I shouldn’t want to fuss;
For by the stack of evidence,
God’s been very good to us.
“We live in a world of disposable things but you are not one of them. You are irreplaceable, one of a kind and there will never be another you. You are not disposable. Do not let anyone tell you differently” (unknown)
“just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly” (anonymous)
“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” (Howard Thurman)
“If there is to be peace in the world,
There must be peace in the nations.
If there is to be peace in the nations,
There must be peace in the cities.
If there is to be peace in the cities,
There must be peace between neighbors.
If there is to be peace between neighbors,
There must be peace in the home.
If there is to be peace in the home,
There must be peace in the heart.”
― Lao Tzu
