It seems like I've been mentioning a good lot of books lately. Perhaps that's because we have a good lot of them, and we love them so much.
The book I'm looking at right now is one that a dear heart sent me a few years ago. She was done with it, and wanted to find it a new home...and that new home was ours. It is a lovely book, and any time I feel a bit down, I pull it out, read a bit, and I feel some better. It is The Book of Positive Quotations, compiled and arranged by John Cook.
Thank you, Stacey, wherever you may be these days. (Stacey and I have since lost touch, due to changes in message board membership, time spent online, and other such things. I miss her.)
It recently occurred to me that I should share some of these lovely quotes with you, because then they will bless you too. Also, there are 543 (double column!) pages of them, so when I'm having a busy day, expect a positive quote...or two...or five!
Without further ado...
"Let God love you through others and let God love others through you."
"We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand...and melting like a snowflake. Let us use it before it is too late."
-Marie Beynon Ray
"It is quite useless knocking at the door of heaven for earthly comfort. It's not the sort of comfort they supply there."
"If you would hit the mark, you must aim a little above it; every arrow that flies feels the attraction of earth."
-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
"Courage is the power to let go of the familiar."
I will share more on another busy day.
