“Lord Jesus, you are my righteousness, I am your sin.
You have taken upon Yourself what is mine and given me what is yours.
You have become what you were not so that I might become what I am not.”
MARTIN LUTHER

“God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him…”
JOHN PIPER, Future Grace

“The important thing is to stop lying to yourself. A man who lies to himself, and believes his own lies, becomes unable to recognize truth, either in himself or in anyone else, and he ends up losing respect for himself as well as for others. When he has no respect for anyone, he can no longer love and, in order to divert himself, having no love in him he yields to his impulses, indulges in the lowest forms of pleasure, and behaves in the end like an animal, in satisfying his vices. And it all comes from lying - lying to others and to yourself.”
FYDOR DOSTOEVESKY, The Brothers Karamazov

“Common sense is not so common.” – Voltaire

“I believe our homes are to be a visible reflection of our Lord and Creator, in whose image we are made, and are to draw first of all our families and then a lost and dying world to Christ. Beauty is a very powerful drawing card for people. Who chooses to be in an ugly and dark place when they can be in a light and beautiful place? When I read Scripture it seems to me that heaven will be very beautiful with no effort spared to make it so. Am I not to do the same with my home on earth?”
Edith Schaeffer, The Hidden Art of Homemaking
(I think this is my favorite book apart from God’s Holy Word)
