25 In Glimpses

Quotes To Ponder // Glimpses

I’ve tried to write a post for this link up a few times now. But I don’t have anything to write. I don’t like when my mind is blank and nothing appears to be happening. So instead of forcing the issue, I am simply going to share some quotes I’ve come across on the web recently and hope they will bless you.

There is comfort in the center of the storm, in the midst of it you can hear the whispering words, “Fear thou not, for I am with thee. . . ” – Deborah Ann Belka

To love means loving the unlovable. To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable. Faith means believing the unbelievable. Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless. – Gilbert K. Chesterton

Every man’s life is a fairy tale written by God’s fingers. – Hans Christian Andersen

Ah, but a man’s reach should exceed his grasp, Or what’s a heaven for?
– Robert Browning

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart. – Helen Keller

Keep your face always toward the sunshine – and shadows will fall behind you.
– Walt Whitman

What lies behind you and what lies in front of you, pales in comparison to what lies inside of you. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.  – Edith Wharton

And now I continue to list the beauty that I’m finding in my every day life.

    I love that old New-Englander, Robert Frost. And your quote reminds me of another quote (from somewhere) that our God is the God of Through — He doesn’t leave us in the middle of our messes, but goes Through them with us.

    I’m rejoicing with you, Barbie, as you celebrate the great biopsy results! I love these wisdom quotes. It’s hard to play favourites, but the Walt Whitman and Ralph Waldo Emerson ones seemed to shout out to me most of all. May you be enabled to rest, be refreshed and gather strength to write whenever inspiration is present. Life can be draining enough, without us putting pressure on ourselves to perform when we don’t feel up to it. Take good, essential soul care of yourself, because YOU are important too. Blessings, love and prayers. xo <3

    Barbie, I hate it when my mind is blank and no matter how hard I try I can’t think of a thing to write. But I love how you decided to share some favorite quotes. They are all so good. I especially love the G.K.Chesterton one and also the one by Hans Christian Anderson.

    Blessings on your week!

      It seems like I’m having more of these moments where the writing doesn’t come as easily. It’s great that I can pull something from the web to encourage others with. Have a blessed week Gayl.

    The Joseph Campbell quote reminds me of my One Word last year, “Welcome.” It’s hard to do, but welcoming what comes helps us live a more contented life than constantly trying to shift gears into somewhere God doesn’t plan for us to be. Lots of good quotes here, Barbie! Congrats to your youngest daughter for opening up a bank account. A milestone moment. 🙂 So thankful your husband’s biopsy was clear!
