No matter how dark the moment,
love and hope are always possible.
~ George Chakiris

For I know the plans I have for you,"
declares the LORD,
"plans to prosper you and not to harm you,
plans to give you hope and a future.
Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)

Marriage is like a deck of cards.  
In the beginning all you need is two hearts and a diamond.
By the end you'll wish you had a club and a spade!

Be content with what you have, rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.   -Lao Tzu

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.
It turns what we have into enough and more.
It turns denial into acceptance
chaos into order,
confusion into clarity...
it turns problems into gifts,
failures into success,
the unexpected into the perfect timing
and mistakes into important events.
Gratitude makes sense of our past,
brings peace for today
and creates a vision for tomorrow.
  -Melodie Beattie
Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. Try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books written in a foreign language. Do not now look for the answers. They cannot now be given to you because you could not live them. It is a question of experiencing everything. At present you need to live the question. Perhaps you will gradually, without even noticing it, find yourself experiencing the answer, some distant day.
 -Rainer Maria Rilke

To be content with little is hard; to be content with much, impossible."
 -Marie Von Ebner-Eschenbach

Faith is walking face first and full speed into the dark.
 -Elizabeth Gilbert

We are cups, constantly and quietly being filled. The trick is knowing how to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff out.
 -R. Bradbury

The only journey is the one within.
 -Rainer Maria Rilke

Any fool can make a rule, and any fool will mind it.
 -Henry David Thoreau

I may have lost my virginity,
but I still have the box it came in!

A person's a person no matter how small.
-Dr. Suess
