Did you ever think that since you're not some famous old person or you're not dead:), you don't have anything to say, or at least anything profound that people want to hear? Well, maybe you really don't:) (kidding!), but...maybe you do! I think there is a famous quote or profound finding or statement inside of everyone, if you dig for it. Some may not have to dig too deep; they may be gifted that way. I'm not, but I like thinking, and I like hearing from the Holy Spirit and people that have thought carefully about their words, and when they utter them, it's profound, or needful, or interesting, or something like that. I'd like to hear from you. Let's make you "famous" right now. Why wait until you're dead? Let's celebrate your thoughts today!! You DO have something to say! Give me a thought of yours, that in the future, could be compared to some of the greatest quotes made by those who've passed away. Even if no one ever sees it but us (my readers...all 3 of them:) kidding's 4!), you'll be celebrated and appreciated (and maybe even quoted!) TODAY!! As usual, I'll start us off. You leave me a comment and give me your best, your own, personal quote...GIVE ME YOU!

"Think about trials. Can God trust you with one?"

"If you can tell how a man will treat his wife by the way he treated his mother, you can tell how a woman will choose a man by the way her father treated her."

"Train up a dog in the way he should 'go,' and when he poops, he will depart from it."

"What your grandparents pour into you, you should pour out on paper; let the ink spill across the pages, then you use it to pour into the next generations, to pour across the ages."

"To raise a child, you really don't have to make more than a one-time investment. You make the decision once to invest in them for the rest of their lives."

"There will always be many ways to get from point A to point B, but there will never be more than one way to get There from here."

"Rather than trying to figure out how to get along with others, how to come across, how to help, etc., just love them and everything else just falls into place, every time."

"Love is eternally fail-safe and fool-proof."

"Whoever said that 'sugar and spice and everything nice' is what girls are made of must not have known mine, but they sure know their cup of chai!"

"If you could see the average mind at work, it would be waiting on something bad, hoping for something good, and doing the limbo in between."

"Babies remind us of many things: When we're young-why we're having them, when we're older-why we don't need anymore of our own, and when we're elderly-why we've lost our minds because of them."

"It's a sin to trash a great mind. Just know when it needs to go into the recycle bin."

"Some people don't need to write 1 quote or 12, because they really DON'T have anything to say:)"

Have yourself a thoughtfully "quotatious" Thursday!!!

Hello, Thank you for stopping by the other day. I have had a sick child in my care for a few days so my visit was delayed. Your visit was a sweet encouragement to me that day.
God has been very trusting of us lately Ha! :)
We are embarking on a wild obedient adventure that is hard work.
What doesn't kill ya makes you stronger.

"No man was ever shot while doing the dishes" is a fun one I like
"rise and shine" is my favorite
"Kindness is power"
"Husband and wife, best friends for life"

I like "Rise and Shine" too. It takes on a whole new meaning when you think of how you can use it to really start your day--arise and be light or "shine" for the Lord before men. Make that your intent every morning. Or it can mean rise above your circumstances and let God's light shine through you. Thanks for stopping by.
