 With the captain of the American Navy Admiral Porter, there was a young officer who never yawned. Whenever the captain called on him, he found him ready, put on his clothes and showing up soon cheerfully. The captain said to him once, “I will promote you if you tell me why are you always ready?”

The officer replied, “Whether sleeping or waking up my heart is ready whatever the case is. I’m always ready to respond even if I’m asleep, so I never complain.”

Ready is my heart, O Lord, ready is my heart.

Call on me by day or by night.

I am waiting for Your coming.

Your voice is sweet.

Come to me and let me come to You.

The Power of Love

 

A rock is strong but iron can split it.

Iron is strong but fire can melt it.

Fire is strong but water can quench it.

Water is strong but the clouds can carry it far away.

Clouds are strong but the winds can move them.

Winds are strong but man can resist them.

Man is strong but fear can destroy him.

Fear is strong but love can casts it out.
