Tidbits

To learn how to pray is to enter the world of a child, where all things are possible. --Paul Miller

You don't create intimacy; you make room for it. This is true whether you are talking about your spouse, your friend, or God. You need space to be together. Efficiency, multitasking, and busyness all kill intimacy. In short, you can't get to know God on the fly.  --Paul Miller

"Preach the gospel; if necessary use words" is like saying "feed the poor; if necessary use food." --David Sitton

Love is not love / Which alters when it alteration finds. --William Shakespeare
