Mom's Overture by Anita Renfroe

Here is a video that all moms can relate to. I saw her at the women of faith conference. She was great!

just a couple more quotes

"Belief is a wise wager. Granted that faith cannot be proved, what harm will come to you if you gamble on its truth and it proves false? If you gain, you gain all; if you lose, you lose nothing. Wager, then, without hesitation, that He exists."
"Between us and heaven or hell there is only life, which is the frailest thing in the world."
These quotes are by Blaise Pascal. It wasn't until I started home schooling that I realized he left sciencific pursuits and devoted the rest of his life to Christian apologetics and philosophy.

more quotes

"Only God knows how to humble us without humiliating us and exalt us without flattering us." author unknown (by me) That makes me think of the passage in James, which goes something like," Let he who is poor take pride in his high position (because he is a son of God.) And let he who is rich take pride in his low position for he will soon be gone like a flower."

And on a lighter note. Of all people, I've heard Woody Allen quoted a number of times by Christian authors. Here's one of my favorite, " I'm not afraid of dying; I just don't want to be there when it happens."

I have to admit I'm a collecter of quotes. I love the compact, pithy sayings of others who can get the point across so much better than I. Here's my favorite. I read it to my family but didn't get much more than a grunt, so I have it on a piece of paper on the fridge. Maybe over time its meaning will sink in. "He is no fool who gives up what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose." This was written by a man, Jim Elliot, who gave up his life to take the gospel to a hostile tribe in South America, and gained an eternal reward. When he said that, he meant it.
I'll look back in my journal and share some more treasures in the weeks to come.
