It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness.
Trials teach us what we are; they dig up the soil, and let us see what we are made of.
May we have communion with God in the secret of our hearts, and find Him to be to us as a little sanctuary.
Men know not the gold which lies in the mine of Christ Jesus, or surely they would dig in it night and day. They have not yet discovered the pearl of great price, or they would have sold their all to buy the field wherein it lies.

The Lord gets his best soldiers out of the highlands of affliction.
Charles Spurgeon — quotes and aphorisms

A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.
