Every morning I try to read 1 entry from Max Lucado’s Grace for the Moment.  It serves as my daily source of spiritual strength.  This is where I get my inspiration from.  On weekends, especially on Sundays I spend extra time reading and re-reading the the entries.  This morning I cried because I felt like I have read one of the best love stories in existence.  It wasn’t lengthy, but it was enough to make me understand how loved we all are by our Creator.  Today I am blessed with the thought that I am an original, creative, and loving creation. May you all be blessed with this thought as well. Have an awesome Sunday! ^__^

"I cannot believe that the purpose of life is to be ‘happy.’ I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be compassionate. It is above all, to matter: to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all."
