Thought I’d pass along a few quotes I’ve recently read or been given:

Great works are performed not by strength, but by perseverance.  

~ Samuel Johnson


He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.”

~ Jim Elliott


Child, all our times are in His hand, even the difficult ones.

~ Corrie Ten Boom


But God is not proud; He stoops to conquer. He will have us even though we have shown that we prefer everything else to Him and come to Him now that there is nothing better to be had.

~ C.S. Lewis, The Problem Of Pain
