Dale‘s favorite verses were:

But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

John 15:13 ESV

Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.

Dale used to often say, There are only three things I know for sure...

1). I know that God is

2). I know that God is Good

3). And I know that God holds me fast
