A Quote by Frederick Buechner on gifts, god, grace, life, love, separation, universe, and world

The grace of God means something like: Here is your life. You might never have been, but you are because the party wouldn't have been complete without you. Here is the world. Beautiful and terrible things will happen. Don't be afraid. I am with you. Nothing can ever separate us. It's for you I created the universe. I love you. . . . There's only one catch. Like any other gift, the gift of grace can be yours only if you'll reach out and take it. Maybe being able to reach out and take it is a gift too.

A Quote by Francis Quarles on gifts, god, and quality

He that gives all, though but little, gives much; because God looks not to the quantity of the gift, but to the quality of the givers.

A Quote by ElRay L. Christiansen on blessings, death, eternity, fatherhood, gifts, glory, guidance, honor, indifference, laws, life, mercy, merit, salvation, and time

So this estate is given each of us to determine whether or not we will merit glory and honor "for ever and ever," or whether we will rebel and refuse or be indifferent and not comply with the conditions and the laws and the ordinances provided by a merciful Father for our guidance through life and our protection and our salvation and thereby, by so doing, deny ourselves the fabulous gift and blessing of eternal life. This life, then, is a time of "sifting," a time when the "wheat" is separated from the "chaff," a time of deciding who is who and where we will live after we die.

ElRay L. Christiansen (1897 - 1975)

A Quote by Elizabeth Hardwick on experience, gifts, kindness, knowledge, passion, reading, and world

The greatest gift is the passion for reading. It is cheap, it consoles, it distracts, it excites, it gives you knowledge of the world and experience of a wide kind. It is a moral illumination.

Elizabeth Hardwick (1916 -)

A Quote by Elizabeth Barrett Browning on angels, babies, gifts, gold, simplicity, and sleep

The Holy Night We sate among the stalls at Bethlehem; The dumb kine from their fodder turning them, Softened their horned faces To almost human gazes Toward the newly Born: The simple shepherds from the star-lit brooks Brought visionary looks, As yet in their astonied hearing rung The strange sweet angel-tongue: The magi of the East, in sandals worn, Knelt reverent, sweeping round, With long pale beards, their gifts upon the ground, The incense, myrrh, and gold These baby hands were impotent to hold: So let all earthlies and celestials wait Upon thy royal state. Sleep, sleep, my kingly One!

A Quote by Elizabeth Barrett Browning on gifts and god


God answers sharp and sudden on some prayers, And thrusts the thing we have prayed for in our face, A gauntlet with a gift in 't.
