I love quotes! They challenge me, inspire me and provide much needed wisdom, encouragement and support. Last night I was reading old emails that I sent to someone few years ago after a long and deep emotional conversation. I am hoping this quote comes true but the verdict is still out!

“Nothing that we give up to sin from our earthly desires is worth more than what it takes from us.” –Beth Moore
“The greatest gift you can give to somebody is your own personal development. I used to say, ‘If you take care of me, I will take care of you.” Now I say, “I will take care of me for you, if you will take care of you for me.’” –Jim Rohn
