„Time is your most precious gift because you only have a set amount of it. You can make more money, but you can't make more time. When you give someone your time, you are giving them a portion of your life that you'll never get back. Your time is your life. That is why the greatest gift you can give someone is your time.
It is not enough to just say relationships are important; we must prove it by investing time in them. Words alone are worthless. "My children, our love should not be just words and talk; it must be true love, which shows itself in action." Relationships take time and effort, and the best way to spell love is "T-I-M-E.“

While your offender has probably forgotten the offense and gone on with life, you continue to stew in your pain, perpetuating the past.

You are only hurting yourself with your bitterness. For your own sake, learn from it, and then let it go.“ The Purpose Driven Life: What on Earth Am I Here for?


„Our culture has accepted two huge lies. The first is that if you disagree with someone’s lifestyle, you must fear or hate them. The second is that to love someone means you agree with everything they believe or do. Both are nonsense. You don’t have to compromise convictions to be compassionate.“

„God sometimes removes a person from your life for your protection. Don't run after them.“
