Q. Quotes? Anything spoken by Paul, the book "Jesus Calling," CS Lewis or Oswald Chambers. 

And anything from "A Beautiful Offering" by Angela Thomas

"If you want your life to be a beautiful offering to God, then one of the attributes that He blesses is becoming a woman of peace. Maybe the woman who has become a peacemaker would look something like this:

-She has surrendered her life to God and she's not mad about it. She is learning to trust Him with the outcome and, even beyond trust, she anticipates that His plan will be more exciting and better than she could have imagined.

-She tends the hearts of those she loves. Petty details decline in value. Love matters more.

-She is beginning to see what counts for eternity and gives her attention accordingly.

-She is interruptible.

-She looks into the eyes of neighbors and strangers and the goofy friends of her kids and sees the person who wants to be loved and valued and applauded.

-She understands that life doesn't always turn out right and people don't turn out right and just about everything needs to be covered with forgiveness.

-She is slow to mumble stupid words of discouragement.

-She considers when it is appropriate to become angry.

-She is way past appearances and pretense.

-She surrounds herself with passionate contentment."
