Favorite Quote:
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you,” declares the LORD, “and will bring you back from captivity. I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you,” declares the LORD, “and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile.”

Jeremiah 29:11-14


A slight twist on the famous Forrest Gump quote.

To me, each jelly bean in the jar represents a different event in life...whether it's graduating college, getting married, or watching your children grow into adults. But, even as one stage of your life ends and you finish eating one jelly bean, a whole myriad of possible adventures await, just like the bright assortment of jelly beans in the jar waiting for your pick.

You know what they say... "Life is like a jar of jelly beans, you never know what you're gonna get."
