From the Pastor...

This life therefor is not righteousness, but growth in righteousness, not health, but healing, not being but becoming, not rest but exercise. We are not yet what we shall be, but we are growing toward it, the process is not yet finished, but it is going on, this is not the end, but it is the road. All does not yet gleam in glory, but all is being purified.
- Martin Luther

Blessed is he who submits to the will of God; he can never be unhappy. Men may deal with him as they will... he is without care; he knows that 'all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to His purpose.'
- Martin Luther

Cry for grace from God to be able to see God's hand in every trial, and then for grace.. to submit at once to it. Not only to submit, but to acquiesce, and to rejoice in it... I think there is generally an end to trouble when we get to that.
- Charles Spurgeon

If anyone could tell you the shortest, surest way to all happiness and perfection, he must tell you to make it a rule to yourself to thank and praise God for everything that happens to you. For it is certain that whatever seeming calamity happens to you, if you thank and praise God for it, you turn it into a blessing....
- William Law

I thank God for my handicaps, for through them I have found myself, my work and my God.
- Helen Keller
