"The Church is looking for better methods; God is looking for better men." ... "What the Church needs to-day is not more machinery or better, not new organizations or more and novel methods, but men whom the Holy Ghost can use -- men of prayer, men mighty in prayer. The Holy Ghost does not flow through methods, but through men. He does not come on machinery, but on men. He does not annoint plans, but men -- men of prayer." ~ E. M. Bounds ~
" I don't know who my grandfather was: I am much more concerned to know what his grandson will be."

You say, "my father wasn't all he could have been; he did...thus and so... Or, my mother wasn't all she could have been; she did...thus and so... ." For your sake, not theirs, please forgive them for real and imagined wrong doings. I beg you, permit the healing to begin and become the parent to your children you wanted your parents to be to you. Be the generation that stops "the sins of the fathers...". ~ skb ~
"There's one sad truth in life I've found
While journeying east and west -
The only folks we really wound
Are those we love the best.
We flatter those we scarcely know,
We please the fleeting guest,
And deal full many a thoughtless blow
To those who love us best."
"A man's children and his garden both reflect the amount of weeding done during the growing season."
