One tear in the driving rain, One voice in a sea of pain
Could the maker of the stars, Hear the sound of my breaking heart?
One life, that's all I am, Right now I can barely stand
If You're everything You say You are, Would You come close and hold my heart
I've been so afraid, afraid to close my eyes, So much can slip away before I say goodbye.
But if there's no other way, I'm done asking why. I'm on my knees, begging You to turn to me
I'm on my knees, Father will You run to me?
So many questions without answers, Your promises remain
I can't see but I'll take my chances to hear You call my name
To hear You call my name
Hold my heart, could you hold my heart?

- Jonathan Edwards
The fact is, that to do anything in the world worth doing, we must not stand back shivering and thinking of the cold and danger, but jump in and scramble through as well as we can.
- Robert Cushing
Fear less, hope more, eat less, chew more, whine less, breathe more, talk less, say more, hate less, love more, and good things will be yours.
- Swedish Proverb
We shall find peace. We shall hear angels.
We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do.
- Mother Teresa
