LOVE

LOVE

Don't find love, let love find you. That's why it's called falling in love because you don't force yourself to fall, you just fall."

"Once you accept someone for who and what they really are, they will really surprise you by being better than you ever expected."

"Know love, know happiness. No love, no happiness."

"I love you not because I need you, But I need you because I love you."

"Love is loving/ accepting a person with all his/her strength and weaknesses."

"Never love a love that hurts, never hurt a love that loves."

"Love is not for the one you love, it is for the one who makes you feel special, with whom you laugh, cry, share, with whom you are yourself, who makes a difference to your life, makes you feel....love."

"Lucky is the man who is the first love of a woman but luckier is the woman who is the last love of a man."

"Pain is to know that someone whom you love, is in love with someone else."

"You came from no where, and in no time got close.., not to me, but to my heart."

"Love is not something that happens on first sight, it happens when you start knowing each other and in turn end up needing each other, for every feeling, for every thought and for every moment."

"When two friends fall in love they learn they are meant for each other. When they fall out of love they realize they want to keep each other forever."

"I love you not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you. I love you not only for what you have made of yourself, but for what you are making of me. I love you for the part of me that you bring out."

"Love is seeing yourself in someone's eyes and finding yourself in somebody's heart."

"Once you have loved, you will always love. For what's in your mind may escape but what's in your heart will remain forever."

"All my life I was afraid that I would never find love....
and now that I've found it, I'm afraid that I will lose it."

"Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer."

"If I am given a chance to change one thing in this world,
I will change the order of alphabets and place U and I together."

"No man/woman is worth your tears and
the only one who is, will never make you cry. "

"If a hug represented how much I loved you,
I would hold you in my arms forever."

"We laughed until we had to cry, we hugged right down to our last goodbye,
we were the best we'll ever be, just for a moment, you and me."

"I may not get to see you as often as I'd like. I may not get to hold you in my arms all through the night. But deep inside my heart I know, this is for real And no matter what, I'll always love you."

"The stolen kisses are always the sweetest."

"I'd walk half way around the world... for just one kiss from you..."

"Distance can't keep us apart 'cause you'll always live within my heart."

"If you love someone, put their name in a circle, instead of a heart, because hearts can break, but circles go on forever."

"Every moment of life is so precious and every moment I'm not with you is a moment wasted!"

FRIENDSHIP

A FRIEND IS LIKE A --

A friend is like a flower,
A rose to be axact.
Or maybe like a brand new gate,
That never comes unlatched.

A friend is like an owl,
Both beautiful and wise.
Or perhaps a friend is like a ghost,
Who's spirit never dies.

A friend is like those blades of grass,
You can never mow,
Standing tall and proud,
In a perfect little row.

A friend is like a heart that goes
Strong until the end.
Where would we be in this world,
If we didnt have a friend....


-- A BLESSING TO FRIENDSHIP --

Father, I ask You to bless my friend reading this right now!
Lord, show them a new revelation of Your love and power.
Holy Spirit, I ask you to minister to their spirit at this very moment.

Where there is pain, give them Your peace and mercy.

Where there is self-doubting, release a renewed confidence in
Your ability to work through them.

Where there is tiredness, or exhaustion, I ask You to give them
understanding, patience, and strength as they learn Your leading.

Where there is spiritual stagnation, I ask You to renew them by revealing
Your nearness, and by drawing them into greater intimacy with You.

Where there is fear, reveal Your love, and release to them Your courage.

Where there is sin blocking them, reveal it, and break its hold over my friend's life.

Bless their finances, give them greater vision, and raiseup leaders, and friends to support, and encourage them.

Give each of them discernment to recognize the demonic forces around them, and reveal to them the power they have in You to defeat it.

I ask You to do these things in Jesus' na
me!

IF YOU EVER FEEL LIKE CRYING,
LOOK UP AT THE BLUE SKY
BECAUSE THE FRAGMENT OF YOUR TEARS
WILL TURN INTO A CLOUD
AND FLOW AWAY WITH THE WIND . . . .

 

ALWAYS LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST
Don't let go of hope
Hope gives you the strength to keep going
When you feel like giving up

Don't ever quit believing in yourself
As long as you believe you can
You will have reason for trying

Don't let anyone hold your happiness in their hands
Hold it in yours, so it will always be within your reach

Don't let bad moments overcome you,
Be patient, and they will pass

Don't ever forget how to laugh
Or be too proud to cry
Or too stubborn to smile
We all need to be honest to ourselves

Don't feel like you've lost
When plans and dreams fall short of your hopes
Anytime you learn something new
About yourself or about life
You have progressed

Don't do anything that takes away
From your self-respect
Feeling good about yourself
Is essential to feeling good about life

With all the above live life to its fullest . . . .


WISHES
If I could have my wishes,
If wishes did come true;
I would wish for happiness,
And a long full life for you.

I would wish for laughter,
And fill your life with song;
Then ask for peace and joy and love,
To follow you all day long.

Then I would ask for peaceful rest,
To visit you at night;
And that your every morning,
Dawn shimmering and bright.

I would ask for nothing,
To give back myself;
As long as you are happy,
I want for nothing else.

For just to see contentment,
On your face and know you're fine;
Would truly satisfy me,
And bring joy to this heart of mine.

If I could have my wishes,
If wishes did come true;
I'd wish for the sun and the moon and the stars,
And I'd give them all to you.

Candidate For ordination:


A Candidate for Ordination was asked if he knew his Bible. “What part of Bible do you like best?” “I Like the Book of Parables.” “Well, can you give it?” And he proceeded:

“As a man went forth from Jerusalem to Jericho, he fell among thieves. And thorns grew up and chocked that man. And he had no money, so he met Queen Sheeba, who gave him a hundred changes of raiment and a thousand talents of gold. And he said, ‘What are these among so many?’ And he entered into a chariot and drove furiously. And as he passed under a great oak, his hair caught in the branches and left him hanging. And his wife Delilah came down the road she cut off his hair, and fell on stony ground. And it began to rain, and it rained forty days and forty nights. And he hid himself in a cave. When he came out of the cave he met a man who said, ‘Come and have supper with me.’ And he said, “I cannot come and have supper with you, for I have married a wife and I cannot come and have supper with you.” So, that man went out into the highways and byways and compelled that man to come and have supper with him. And, as he passed on up to Jerusalem, he saw Queen Jezebel sitting high up in a window. And she laughed at him. And they threw her down seventy times seven. And of the fragments they gathered twelve baskets full. Now, whose wife will she be in the Day of Judgment?”
