“… … We declare this day that we are One Nation Under God and that the United States of America loves You Lord, Jesus. It is in YOU whom we trust. Never let us lose our freedoms to openly serve and obey You Jesus, and proclaim You as the risen Savior, King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
Lord fulfill every dream You have in Your heart for this nation which was founded in You, and remains in You.
We ask You to make this America’s finest hour — where Your Kingdom is advanced like never before in every sphere of influence, where we will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
We pray all these things in the name of Jesus, the Author and Giver of life.”

I was bullied until I prevented a new student from being bullied.
By standing up for him, I learned to stand up for myself.”

“There are so many famous people now that are
not really gifted or talented at doing anything
other than getting made up, putting on tight dresses, acting badly, getting married.
I mean, what the hell? I don’t know where we are
going with this here in America. And we are setting a tone
for the world, because everyone looks at what we do.”
“There was a time when fame meant that you were either
someone who is really gifted in your field or you were making an impact,
or you are famous because you were a really horrible person, you know?
But now, you can become famous by eating a frog. It’s just not the same thing.”

“You cannot define a person on just one thing.
You can’t just forget all these wonderful and good things
that a person has done because one thing
didn’t come off the way you thought it should come off.”
“RISE UP, BELOVED”, cries JESUS. “You are NEARLY through transition. You are SO close.
Don’t lie down on the battlefield, now, when you are SO close to victory.
I AM your strength, I AM your future, I AM your purpose, I AM your Deliverer.
You shall surely see My goodness in the land of the living.
Your harvest is upon you.”

“I always say to people when I have the chance to talk to them
about Orphan’s Promise: we can’t change them all,
but we can speak to the ones who cross our paths.
We can make a difference.

You gotta do what you can with what’s in front of you.”

“It’s true, Christmas can feel like a lot of work, particularly for mothers.
But when you look back on all the Christmases in your life,
you’ll find you’ve created family traditions and lasting memories.
Those memories, good and bad, are really what help
to keep a family together over the long haul.”
~ Caroline Kennedy,

“When I wake up, I expect things to be good.
If they’re not, then I try to set about trying to make them as good as I can
’cause I know I’m gonna have to live that day anyway.
So why not try to make the most of it if you can?
Some days, they pan out a little better than others,
but you still gotta always just try.
