A Week in Words
Melissa at Breath of Life has started a new meme this Monday. It's very simple. Here's her own words:

Although I'm not a wordsmith, I love words. Love them. (Just ask anyone who knows me. I've always got plenty to share.) One of the things I enjoy most is seeing how other people put them together. Think about it. A few carefully crafted words can make you laugh, cry, or dream. They can completely change your perspective and your life.

Anyone else?

Lately I've found an abundance of good words from many different sources. Words that have inspired and encouraged me. Words that have spoken to the depths of heart, and words that have made me laugh out loud. Words I want to share.

And I want you to share the words you've found. So I'm creating the "Week in Words" carnival. Playing along is simple, just write a post of the quote(s) that spoke to you during the week (attributed, of course) and link back here. They can be from any written source, i.e. magazine, newspaper, blog, book. The only requirement is that they be words you read.

Let's start on Monday the 25th, shall we?

I love quotes! So I thought I'd join in on this one. My first entry comes from a statement made in the book "Unexplainable - Pursuing a Life Only God Can Make Possible" by Don Cousins

"In most cases and on most days, the results of following God's guidance will not be dramatic. While we tend to focus on Daniel's dramatic rescue one night in the lion's den, what's even far more unexplainable is how Daniel chose earlier to continue "kneeling on his knees three times a day, praying and giving thanks before his God, as he had been doing previously" (Dan 6:10), despite the king's edict that made such prayer a capital offense."
-Don Cousins

Much to think on there!

Yes...good stuff to think about.

Amy @ Hope Is the Word said...

Oh, that's GOOD! Thanks for sharing!

Carrie said...

Definitely a lot to think about there!

This carnival is right up my alley -- I'll plan to join in next time.

And those words are food for thought. Too often we do focus on the big dramatic events rather than the everyday ones that make up most of our lives.

Great quote! Thanks for joining!

Leslie said...

Oh, love that good quote. I also love the lovely birds you have on your header and profile pic.

I love that quote. I've found that I need to follow God's guidance on the little things, so when the big things come, I'm good at recognizing His voice.

Sandra said...

Such a good quote Susanne, thank you :)

Karen said...

Great quote. It seems to fit in with your post today on patience. Funny how things come together that way.
