Weekend Wisdom: The Last Sunday of Summer

Welcome to the last Sunday of Summer. Let celebrate with some wisdom from Ralph Waldo Emerson. Love his quotes.

“When summer opens, I see how fast it matures, and fear it will be short; but after the heats of July and August, I am reconciled, like one who has had his swing, to the cool of autumn.” –

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Bible Verses for Painful Times

Whether it’s mentally processing a nationwide event such as 9/11 or a painful event in your personal life, may these verses comfort, encourage and/or give you hope

“We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down but not destroyed” 

2 Corinthians 4:8-9

He will cover you with his feathers,

    and under his wings you will find refuge;

    his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

Psalm 91:4

I trust in you;

    do not let me be put to shame,

    nor let my enemies triumph over me.

No one who hopes in you

    will ever be put to shame,

but shame will come on those

    who are treacherous without cause

Psalm 25:2-3

Weekend Wisdom: Weapons

The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.
