Just some quotes I ran across

"What is defeat? Nothing but education; nothing but the first step to something better."

~Wendell Phillips

"I've learned that every loss or defeat reveals an important surprise…for time will prove each setback, was a blessing in disguise."
~Linda Ellis

"We don't know who we are until we see what we can do."

~Martha Grimes

"The real difficulty is to overcome how you think about yourself. If we don't have that we never grow, we never learn, and sure as heck we should never teach."
~Maya Angelou

Hugs to all today!

sand and water

Do you have those moments when you have a picture that comes from nowhere and is stuck in your head for days? I have one that did just that to me last week.

A picture of a mold and sand, or light colored dirt. When you tilted the mold, the sand fell out in a pile of nothing.

Put the sand back in the mold and add water and tilt it and a form comes out.

The sand was us, the water God. Add God to us and He forms us into the mold He wants. Pure water. And dust.

Stop and smell the flowers


Stop what you are doing.

Smell the flowers.

And Thank God for them.

Thank Him for everything.

Good and Bad.

For the Good because it makes us realize that we need Him in the good times to make it through.

For the Bad because it makes us realize that we need Him to give us strength to make it through.

Give thanks for ALL things because we need Him to guide us at ALL times and through ALL times.
