Three Gifts in What I am Reading:

#474  "I don't believe God wants our church life to be centered on buildings and services. Instead, God wants our churches--whatever specific forms our gatherings take--to be focused on active discipleship, mission, and the pursuit of unity."

--Erasing Hell by Francis Chan

--------------------------

#475  "If you are pessimistic about your lot in life, science suggests, you can create a self-fulfilling prophecy that leads to disease.... No matter how dire your lot, just being optimistic engenders success, health, and happiness. [...] So what is it that makes 'the days of the oppressed' so wretched? I believe it's their own tendency to see the cup half-empty, instead of half-full. They are oppressed by their own fears and anxieties, their own selfish desires, their own ungrateful hearts--hearts that dwell on the bad instead of believing the best, hearts that covet what they've been denied instead of contenting themselves with what they've been given. [...] 'Happiness is not having what you want, it's wanting what you have.'"

--Love Your Husband, Love Yourself by Jennifer Flanders

----------------------

#476  "...dying's part of the wheel, right there next to being born. You can't pick out the pieces you like and leave the rest. Being part of the whole thing, that's the blessing."

--Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt
