9: "Thanks | 43. I love you for your faith, for loving and trusting in God. | Romans 12:9,10 Don't just pretend that you love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Stand on the side of the good. Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other. | Ecclesiastes 4:9-11 Two people can accomplish more than twice as much as one; they get a better return for their labor. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But people who are alone when they fall are in real trouble. And on a cold night, two under the same blanket can gain warmth from each other. But how can one be warm alone? | Proverbs 5:18-20 Let your wife (companion) be a fountain of blessing for you. Rejoice in the wife (companion) of your youth. She is a loving doe, a graceful deer. Let her breasts satisfy you always. May you always be captivated by her love. | 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. Love does not demand its own way. Love is not irritable, and it keeps no record of when it has been wronged. It is never glad about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. | I Peter 4:8 Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins | Luke 16:13 "No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money." | Ephesians 4:26 And "don't sin by letting anger gain control over you." Don't let the sun go down while you are still angry. | Proverbs 22:6 Teach your children to choose the right path, and when they are older, they will remain upon it. | Philippians 1:9-10 And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, | 1 Corinthians 13:13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

11: 41. You are a problem solver - a decisive, results oriented go getter. And that is hot. | “There is a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results.” ~ Ken Blanchard | “If you believe in yourself and have dedication and pride - and never quit, you'll be a winner. The price of victory is high but so are the rewards.” Paul Bryant | “We compete, not so much against an opponent, but against ourselves. The real test is this: Did I make my best effort on every play?” Bud Wilkinson | "The inches we need are everywhere around us. They're in every break of the game, every minute, every second. On this team we fight for that inch. On this team we tear ourselves and everyone else around us to pieces for that inch. We claw with our fingernails for that inch. Because we know when add up all those inches, that's gonna make the fucking difference between winning and losing! Between living and dying! I'll tell you this, in any fight it's the guy whose willing to die whose gonna win that inch. And I know, if I'm gonna have any life anymore it's because I'm still willing to fight and die for that inch, because that's what living is, the six inches in front of your face." Tony D'Amato (Al Pacino in Any Given Sunday)
