Welcome to The Week In Words, where we share quotes from the last week’s reading. If something you read this past week inspired you, caused you to laugh, cry, think, dream, or just resonated with you in some way, please share it with us, attributing it to its source, which can be a book, newspaper, blog, Facebook — anything that you read. More information is here.
Also, if you’ve posted a quote on your blog this past week, feel free to link it here as well. You don’t have to save it for Mondays. And please do read and comment even if you’re not posting quotes.
Here are a few that stood out to me this week:
From a friend’s Facebook page:
“There are exactly as many special occasions in life as we choose to celebrate.”– Robert Brault
I love that. Celebrations aren’t so much about what’s on the calendar, but about what you do.
From another friend’s Facebook page:
Why is it we only acknowledge that God answers prayer when He does what we want Him to do?
He answers all the time, but sometimes the answer is “No” or “Not now.” And some day when we see the big picture we’ll be just as thankful for those answers as we were the positive ones — though we should be thankful for them by faith now.
And from yet another friend’s Facebook page:
“When things go well, it’s not that we’re so smart; it’s that God is so good” ~ Drew Conley
Who knew Facebook could be so educational? 🙂
You know, when I started participating in this meme, I thought I would be sharing quotes mostly from books I was reading, but I tend to save most of those for when I review the book. But that’s all right — as the description up top says, the quotes that resonate with us in some way can come from any readable source.
If you’ve read anything that particularly spoke to you that you’d like to share, please either list it in the comments below or write a post on your blog and then put the link to that post (not your general blog link) in Mr. Linky below. I do ask that only family-friendly quotes be included.
