Everyone has a favorite quote or quotes. Many times these quotes are something that stick with you because have a significant meaning in your life. For me, I have a collection of quotes that I love and that speak significant meaning in my life. I thought I would take this chance to share those quotes with you. Some of these quotes are serious and thought provoking while other are there for a great laugh.
First, I will start with my favorite bible verse:
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son so that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have eternal life” – John 3:16
This was the first bible verse I ever memorized. I am not the kind of person that has sat around memorizing bible verses or reading the bible in her spare time (though I should get my bible out more than I do), but this is just a verse that has always stuck with me. I never had to try to memorize it, it is just there. I think I had only read it once or twice in bible school when I was younger before I just knew it.
What’s more it has significant meaning in my husbands life as well. His paternal grandmother passed away on my 16th birthday. That day her nurse’s name was John and she was pronounced dead at 3:16. My husband’s father’s side of the family is very religious and took this as a sign to look up the verse. Looking at the verse, they took this as a sign that she was going to heaven.
I find all of this a sign that my husband and I are meant to be together, even though it’s a sad circumstance.
“When someone you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure”
This is on a bracelet my mom got me this past Christmas, which is in memory of my step-grandmother.
