Godly character requires knowing God first hand. The route to knowing God eventually passes directly through the valley of profound loneliness. It is the times when there is no one but God that we learn to know Him most fully. Those times - those moments of utter aloneness - come only from emptying our lives into the lives of others...At those moments when the loneliness is greatest, we must turn in desperate dependency to God...Then Godly character will grow. His Glory bursts through most brightly when the night is darkest. His strength is proven most sufficient when we are weakest. His love penetrates most deeply when we feel unloved.-The Key to Caring by Dr. Larry Crab & Dr. Dan Alle

Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds you plant.-Robert Louis Stevenson

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.-Ralph Waldo Emerson
