"God does not waste an ounce of our pain or a drop of our tears; suffering doesn't come our way for no reason, and He seems especially efficient at using what we endure to mold our character. If we are malleable, He takes our bumps and bruises and shapes them into something beautiful."
— Frank Peretti
"The cross symbolizes a cosmic as well as historic truth. Love conquers the world, but its victory is not an easy one."
