If we ever forget we are one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under. –Ronald Reagan

Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.  Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates. Deut: 6:5-9

Sing to Him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy. Psalm 33:3

Trust in the Lord with all you heart, and lean not unto you own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3: 5-6

One person can make a difference and every person should try. John F. Kennedy

Everybody is a genius, but if you judge a fish by it’s ability to climb a tree, it will spend it’s whole life believing it’s stupid. Albert Einstein

Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire. William Butler Yeats

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Phil 4:13

A champion is one who gets up when he can’t.  Jack Dempsey

Children require guidance and sympathy far more than instruction. Anne Sullivan

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be rather a sort of amusement; this will better enable you to find out the natural bent of the child. – Plato

I am beginning to suspect all elaborate and special systems of education. They seem to me to be built upon the supposition that every child is a kind of idiot who must taught to think. Whereas if the child is left to himself, he will think more and better, if less slowly. Let him come and go freely, let him touch real things and combine his impressions for himself, instead of sitting indoors at a little round table while a sweet-voiced teacher suggest that he build a stone wall with his wooden blocks, or make a rainbow out of strips of colored paper, or plant straw trees in flower pots. Such teaching fills the mind with artificial associations that must be got rid of before the child can develop independent ideas out of actual experiences. – Anne Sullivan

There are many people who can do big things, but there are very few people who will do small things. Mother Teresa

Love generously, praise loudly, live fully. Elias Porter

You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. Jer. 29:1

Go in the strength you have and deliver Isreal from power of Midian.  Am I not sending you?  Judges 6:14

 This is my friend Debi Ogle’s signature on her email…to me she represents the absolute epitome of this verse…”I have told you this so that My joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.”   John 15:11

Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.” 1 Sam. 16:7

O Lord, you have searched me and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Psalm 139: 1-3
