“Recipe for longevity:
leave the table hungry.
leave the bed sleepy.
leave the table thirsty.”
“May there be sprig enough in your life
to outlast the winters;
May there be music enough to lift your
spirits whenever needed;
May you be gentle enough to comfort those
who are hurting,
But revolutionary enough to bring Jesus to
whose who need Him now.
May there always be laughter in your home
And may God always hold you in the palm of His hand.”
“Smiling at death seems like a pretty bold act.
And so I smile like a damned fool.”
~ Emm Cole, Keeping Merminia ~
