When God Whispers Your Name by Max Lucado, Religious Poems, Touching Stories:""It's quiet. It's early. My coffee is hot. The sky is still black. The world is still asleep. The day is coming.

The calm of solitude will be invaded by decisions to be made and deadlines to be met. For the next twelve hours I will be exposed to the day's demands. It is now that I must make a choice. Because of Calvary, I'm free to choose. And so I choose."http://www.inspirationalnursing.com/name
