“It takes a good habit to replace a bad habit.”
― Melody Carlson, Blade Silver: Color Me Scarred

 “It’s amazing the things you realize
when you lose someone:
you get mad at yourself for not
saying the things you could’ve a million times,
you take for granted the days
spent doing nothing when
you could have been with them.
Anyone can be taken,
at any time in our lives,
but we always wait until they’re gone to say
the things we never had the courage to before.”
― Melody Carlson, Finding Out Who You Really Are

“While Owen and Miles talk sports, I people watch. And this is what I see: teenagers trying to act like adults. Or how they think adults act.

― Melody Carlson, Just Another Girl

Even if I am alone
For I’ve a precious Savior
Who’ll come to take me home.

With one foot on earth
And one in eternity.
And I’ll gather His crops
To populate His land
And if I feel weary
I’ll cling tighter to his hand.”
― Melody Carlson

One Final Bonus – Melody Carlson Quote 

“Instead of thanking God for my two strong legs that are able to run and jump and climb, I whined about my “thunder thighs” and “thick” ankles. Instead of rejoicing that I have two capable arms that can lift and carry and balance my body, I complained about the flab that hung beneath them. I have been totally and unbelievably ungrateful for everything. Like a completely spoiled brat, I took my healthy body for granted. I criticized it and despised it. With crystal clarity, I know that I do not deserve the good health that God has mysteriously blessed me with. Not only have I been unappreciative of my body and its amazing working parts, I tortured it by overexercising, and I put my entire health at serious risk by starving myself. What on earth was wrong with me? As I watch these kids with their less-than-perfect bodies, I feel so thoroughly ashamed of myself. I mean, how could I have been so stupid and shallow and self-centered?”

― Melody Carlson, Faded Denim: Color Me Trapped
