"If it sounds like writing I rewrite it. Or, if proper usage gets in the way, it may have to go. I can't allow what we learned in English composition to disrupt the sound and rythm of the narrative."
- Elmore Leonard
The person born with a talent they are meant to use will find their greatest happiness in using it.
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Playing small doesn't serve the world....
All your fun isn't worth a fail.
Is time like money, does it grow on trees?
Are you wasting yet another great commodity?
Your gifts and time, your heart -- opportunity.
Don't you pretend, when you and I know...
Yes, you and I know...
There's more, much more...
Wisdom will change your course.
Only courage will beg your try.
Yes...you must try.
You know, and I know, what you prefer...
You. Prefer. Peculiar.
Try... You must try.
Give yourself permission to fall.
Give yourself permission to soar.
Give your voice permission to speak.
Give your heart permission to roar.
Own. Embody...Live your truth.
Grow and Give...
There's more to you...
I believe the joy of the Lord is my strength...
I believe the Lord hears, the Lord listens, the Lord cares...
I believe the Lord loves me at my worse.
He loves me to my best..
I believe the Lord helps.
He's with me.
Going before me...leading the way.
I believe the Lord claims me, saying proudly - "She's mine.."
"Her name is written on my palm... She'll never be snatched from my hand."
I believe the Lord watches.
He guards me jealously.. Protecting me from destruction, covering me with new mercies..
I believe the Lord heals...
Making me whole..
Keeping my mind...
Holding my heart.
I believe the Lord speaks..
Feeding me daily..
Words of purpose. Words of truth...
Words that soothe.. Words that peel -
.. at the layers of me... at the issues that be..
The Lord is faithful to complete...
The Lord, He's committed to patience.
The Lord is faithful to deliver..
The Lord, He's committed to love..
Great Anchor of My Soul..
My Lord -- my lifeline..
If nothing else is real.. I know that You are..
Have you noticed..how the world turns??
How everyone needs inspiration;
And everyone needs a friend?
So much talk about getting out of the boxes we've put ourselves in.
..There must be an enemy...
a worldwide discourager
that we're all up against
because we're all fighting for:
freedom, expression... joy - settled hearts.
Each morning, like a team, we take swings at the dream killer..
We post public minute motivators, happy quotes and choice words...
...we push forward...
Jubilantly. Unrelenting. With tact.
We advance together as an army, with the Champion of the skies.
For we know and we're sure,
We're champions in disguise.
Everyday realizing, that we are not alone.
Everyday we realize that we are not alone.
Did you notice how the world turns?
how everyone needs a friend,
and everyone wants inspiration...
...that everyone wants to win?
Our victory is here: He's near.
He is Present. He is Friend. Daily strength and unmatched courage...
...hovering above... ...residing within.
