“Say what you mean, mean what you say, but don't say it mean. A girl named Heather used to say that to me.

“ Seek the Lord with all your heart (Deuteronomy 4:29). My daddy told me this when I was a little girl, and this passage has served me well. It has helped me to have a different outlook on life in that no matter what comes about, that God is greater than my circumstance when I keep my eye on Him.”
