“Never forget what Jesus did for you. Never take lightly what it cost Him. And never assume that if it cost Him His very life, that it won't also cost you yours.”

What We Keep

"No, sir, 'tain't what a man gets that makes him rich; it's what he keeps.
And these folks that are swoppin' the old-fashioned sort of love that builds homes and raises families and lets man and wife work together, an' meet trouble together, an' be happy together, an' grow old bein' happy together—if they're swoppin' all that for these here new, down-to-date ideas of such things, they're makin' a poor bargain, accordin' to my way of thinkin'.
There is such a thing, sir, as educatin' a man or woman plumb out of reach of happiness....."

When A Man's A Man by Harold Bell Wright


  1. It's not what we keep... so true. Goodness, this is exactly what I'm learning right now. Have you read "Death by Living" by N.D. Wilson, Lisa? I think you'd love it.

    1. No I haven't......but if you like it, chances are pretty good I would, too ;) I will definitely look it up....thanks for mentioning it!!! =)

  2. Hate to quote a secular song....
    "it's funny how it's the little things in life that mean the most.
    not where you live, what you drive, or the price tag on your clothes.
    There's no dollar sign on peace of mind - this I've come to know...."
    And I won't quote the last line because it talks about drinking. :)
    But true - so true.
    Are you ever gonna comment on my posts? :D JK

    1. It took me a couple minutes to remember which song that was ;)
      And, by the way, you would really, REALLY enjoy the book the quote was from.

      I promise I'll get my thoughts to you one way or another....blog or in person.... ;)
