Quotes for the Soul: Changes

That thing you keep fighting against isn’t “them”. Its your spirit telling you it’s time to operate differently. But like the humans we are, our natural reaction is to fight against it. Enter that other zone! Step away from all you’ve known and take hold of the discomfort needed to level up in all aspects, it’s time! No more excuses. Just do it.

“Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” –Barack Obama

Quotes For The Soul: Time

“Prayer becomes more meaningful as we counsel with the Lord in all of our doings, as we express heartfelt gratitude, and as we pray for others.” -David A. Bednar

Its time I go back to what I know
Its time I seek my usual cure-all remedy
Its time I reach for the one solution that has always fixed every problem
Its time I re-focus my mind, body and spiritual being
Its time I return to the path I unknowingly strayed from
Its time I seek a better me
Its time I go back to him
Father, here I am.
I surrender all in prayer

When did you know that you loved your spouse?

Jerry: “Right around the time my old man started getting sick she was always just there. I could have gotten help from friends but didn’t need to because she was just there. That’s when I knew, around that time.”

Heather: “I don’t know. It was just weird. We were always around each other so I can’t just say exactly when. Like he said, his dad was getting sick so we were coming to Houston a lot. My dad was also sick so we had that connection.”  Continue reading “Love Talks: Bond”
