It’s Friday. That means I’m at the rehearsal dinner tonight and the wedding is tomorrow! But for all of you in bloggityville, it’s the Oh Amanda A Few Of My Favorite Things Week Long Meme. (*snort*)
If you missed Part 1. Well, you are really missing out. Really.
Let’s do a quick one today. This is one of my favorite favoritest things.
Do you have a fave? I have so many. Here’s a few serious ones…
If anyone proved to me that Christ was outside the truth…then I would prefer to remain with Christ than with the truth. –Fyodor Dostoevsky
“The thing I mean can be seen, for instance, in children, when they find some game or joke that they specially enjoy. A child kicks his legs rhythmically through excess, not absence of life. Because children have abounding vitality, because they are in spirit fierce and free, therefore they want things repeated and unchanged. They always say, “Do it again,” and the grown-up person does it again until he is nearly dead. For grown-up people are not strong enough to exult in monotony. But perhaps God is strong enough to exult in monotony. It is possible that God says every morning, “Do it again” to the sun, and every evening, “Do it again” to the moon. It may not be automatic necessity that makes all daisies alike; it may be that God makes every daisy separately, but has never got tired of making them. It may be that He has the eternal appetite of infancy; for we have sinned and grown old, and our Father is younger than we. The repetition in Nature may not be a mere recurrence; it may be a theatrical encore.”–G K Chesteron
And a few that make me laugh…
Get involved! The world is run by those who show up! –Bumper Sticker
If friends were flowers, I’d pick you! –that one is for my sisterchicks! lol!
And probably my very favorite ever…
God cannot give us happiness and peace apart from himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing. –
So, what’s your favorite quote?
