they marry and they keep their sex between the two of them.
They’re not going to get chlamydia, and gonorrhea, and syphilis, and AIDS. It’s safe.”

“I think that comedy is such a tool to open the heart, to loosen up the muscles, to loosen up the brain.
God knew how important it would be to laugh because He said it is a great medicine,
and when used properly, it is the greatest of medicines.”
“To receive man’s recognition, you will have to abide by man’s rules.
And man’s recognition might lead you to success, but it will never lead you to satisfaction.

“People are valuable regardless of the color of their skin.
You can be open about it and talk about it. You don’t have to pretend that you are not different,
but you can learn about those differences God didn’t say, ‘Ooh, I made you brown on accident.’
He made them that color on purpose. And if you do not have friendships with other races,
then ask God to bring you some. He will.”
~ Nicole C. Mullen,

“Dear God, I prayed, all unafraid (as we’re inclined to do),
I do not need a handsome man, but let him be like You;
I do not need one big and strong, nor yet so very tall,
nor need he be some genius, or wealthy, Lord, at all;
but let his head be high, dear God, and let his eye be clear,
his shoulders straight, whate’er his state, whate’er his earthly sphere;
and let his face have character, a ruggedness of soul,
and let his whole life show, dear God, a singleness of goal;
then when he comes (as he will come) with quiet eyes aglow,
I’ll understand that he’s the man I prayed for long ago.”
~ Ruth Bell Graham,
Philanthropist, Poet, Author & Painter
“I establish My covenant with you; and all flesh shall never again be cut off
by the water of the flood, neither shall there again be a flood to destroy the earth.”
God said, “This is the sign of the covenant which I am making between Me and you
and every living creature that is with you, for all successive generations;
I set My bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a sign of a covenant
between Me and the earth. It shall come about, when I bring a cloud over the earth,
that the bow will be seen in the cloud, and I will remember My covenant,
which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh;
and never again shall the water become a flood to destroy all flesh.
When the bow is in the cloud, then I will look upon it, to remember
the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh
that is on the earth.”
“Jesus kinda fools around and gives you parables.
He doesn’t oftentimes say exactly what He means.
But, in Matthew 25, He’s very, very clear.
And He delineates what it takes to get into the Kingdom of Heaven
very, very clearly. And He says how you treat the least among us,
the least of our brothers, that’s how you treat Him.”

“Oh, I have never walked on water, and I have never calmed a storm.
Sometimes I’m hiding away from the madness around me
Like a child who’s afraid of the dark, but when I call on Jesus,
All things are possible; I can mount on wings like eagles’ and soar.
When I call on Jesus, mountains are gonna fall
’cause He’ll move Heaven and Earth to come rescue me, when I call.
Weary brother, broken daughter,
Widowed, widowed lover, you’re not alone.
If you’re tired and scared of the madness around you,
If you can’t find the strength to carry on
call Him in the morning, in the afternoon time
late in the evening. He’ll be there.
When your heart is broken,
And you feel discouraged,
You can just remember that He said
He’ll be there.”
~ Nicole C. Mullen,
Singer, Songwriter & Choreographer.
