This is love: to fly toward a secret sky, to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment. First to let go of life. Finally, to take a step without feet.

Nourish the Soul Quote For Today

April 3, 2013

 

Sleep that knits up the ravelled sleeve of care
The death of each day’s life, sore labour’s bath
Balm of hurt minds, great nature’s second course,
Chief nourisher in life’s feast.

- William Shakespeare -


Miracles Happen Every Day – Quote of the Day For Tuesday

March 5, 2013

Wow, what a quote:

For the person for whom small things do not exist, the great is not great.  – Jose Ortega y Gasset -

 

This one speaks hugely of God’s love and of the miracles happening to us every day.  How often have I missed them.  Yet, I speak the truth.  No matter how broke I am, no matter how swollen my foot is, no matter how much it hurts, no matter how unfairly I’m treated . . . God Is.  Jesus still died for me.  Manifestations of that exist in every homent – the good ones and the “BUT WHY LORD” ones.  It can be a great challenge to notice.  Make the effort.  If I sit and whine over the huge life changing event that I want, I miss the kisses from God which He sends to me all the day long.  Those are truly a BIG deal.


Thank You Lord – Quote of the Day

March 4, 2013

As I walk in pain to a long three days in a low paying and physically brutal job, I needed an encouraging word to lift me up.  The Lord put this one in front of me.  Thank you, Jesus, for you immeasurable love.

jesus

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for theLord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9

 


Quote of the Day – Dance!

February 26, 2013

One of my favorite people quoted this to me and I’d forgotten who said it.  Love it.  This is life in Christ!

Jesus

You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.

- William W. Purkey -

 


Eyes of the Heart Quote!

February 25, 2013

Wow, this is so true.  We have all read this sort of message in the Bible, sang of it in praise songs, etc., but I wonder as I think of some of the decisions and false judgments I have made whether “hearing it” requires a bit more thought.

It is only with the heart that one can see rightly. What is essential is invisible to the eye.

Quote of the Day – Money

February 23, 2013

Money often costs too much.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson -

995623-097

I can remember, in another life as they say, working hard and being so hungry for the VP title.  Those who had it said “it means nothing.”  It wasn’t until I had it that I realized how right they were.

As I write this and contemplate Emerson’s words, I do so having, in the past, had not so much to worry about and having now the constant awareness of my financial concerns.  As with the fancy title, money really doesn’t matter all that much.  True, knowing I could pay my bills felt good and now the monthly “I wonder how” is showing me a different viewpoint, but honestly?  I was more stressed back then even than now.

One way or another, the Lord provides in ways most important and I am a flawed human who needs constant reminder of His love.  His mercy is UNCEASING though and while I learn more and more about our relationship, His and mine, and grow deeper and deeper with Him – learning anew what the word trust means, He understands, loves, forgives, and provides.

Emerson’s right.  Money truly does cost too much.  It’s all about trusting the Lord and reflecting His love.  I can’t afford to deal with the rest of it.  He’s handling it.


How To Change the World Quote of the Day

February 20, 2013

How do you say “thank you” for sunshine or health…for clear days or gentle rains…for happiness, joy or love? You say it by sharing what you have. You say it by making the world a better place in which to live.  Thomas D Willhite
