Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.Love never ends.1 Corinthians 13:4-8a


  • “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.John 10:10 (ESV)


  • “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”Hebrews 13:5 (KJV)

  • He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
        will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.”Psalm 91:1 (ESV)


  • “And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.”Hebrews 11:6 (ESV)


  • As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. 39 She had a sister called Mary,who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. 40 But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!”41 “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, 42 but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.””Luke 10:38-42 (NIV)
