Christian love is finding one’s own joy in actively working for the joy of another, even at the self-sacrificial cost of one’s own private pleasure, all for the glory of God. And that is the kind of love we are to possess as Christians and the kind of love we are to exercise. -Steve Roy
“God is not a belief to which you give your assent. God becomes a reality whom you know intimately, meet everyday, one whose strength becomes your strength, whose love, your love. Live this life of the presence of God long enough and when someone asks you, “Do you believe there is a God?” you may find yourself answering, “No, I do not believe there is a God. I know there is a God.”
~Ernest Boyer, Jr.

Seize upon that moment long ago
One breath away and there you will be
So young and carefree
Again you will see
That place in time…so gold
Still away into that way back when
You thought that all would last forever
But like the weather
Nothing can ever…and be in time
Stay gold ~ Stevie Wonder
