Mines a little longer....................................................................................."Can Shape The World"--- Each of us has a divine assignment: to live in and express love. It is a task you are uniquely equipped to perform. Nobody else will ever know the exact mix of people that you do. Nobody else will ever have the opportunities you do to bless their lives. You have been designated to leave a loving impression on your partner, parents, children, neighbors, co-workers and a whole host of people you have yet to encounter. Like George Bailey in “It’s a Wonderful Life,” you cannot begin to imagine how your loving influence can shape the world. *********************************************** Leave it to me to screw up your Quotes..LOL..LOL..With Much Love and BIG HUGS...ALWAYS......john

That's a great quote, John, about the divine assignment.
With regards to the topic of the divine assignment, some things I would personally add for myself would be:
1) I should give God the credit for the impulses, abilities, opportunities, and successes I have in my divine assignment, since those are all things I have received, not things I made myself.
2) I should remember that no person's divine assignment is better or more important than anyone else's.
3) It's vital to have exciting dreams in life, and what's most exciting about a divine assignment is that nobody can stop it because God's favor is behind it -- and God's favor comes into our lives in order to benefit ourselves and others and in order to make God (not us) look good.
Those are some great quotes up there! I like the quotes about love and trust, which are often the same thing.
Some quotes I like are:
"Your grief will turn to joy."
"I've had a wonderful evening... but this wasn't it."
-- Groucho Marx
"You can't copy anybody and end with anything. If you copy, it means you're working without any real feeling. No two people on earth are alike, and it's got to be that way in music or it isn't music."
- Billie Holiday
"If your daily life seems poor, do not blame it; blame yourself that you are not poet enough to call forth its riches; for the Creator, there is no poverty."
-- Rainer Maria Rilke
And, there are so many musicians with songs featuring excellent lyrics: The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, Al Green, and many more. How about this song by the band Fleet Foxes:
"Meadowlarks" by Fleet Foxes
Meadowlark, fly your way down
I hold a cornucopia and a golden crown
For you to wear upon your fleecy down
Meadowlark, sing to me
Hummingbird, just let me down
Inside the broken ovals of your olive eyes
I do believe you gave it your best try
Hummingbird, sing to me
Hummingbird, sing to me
Don't believe a word that I haven't heard
Little children laughing at the boys and girls
The meadowlark singing to you each and every day
The arc-line on the hillside and the market in the hay.
You're welcome, Sara. Yes, I believe that God is like a divine alchemist, with the ability to turn things that are sorrowful, sinful, unbecoming, and foolish into things that are joyous, noble, beautiful, and wise.
