Quotes.

In the spirit of themes, I've been collecting these little quotes for a while and I wanted to group them all together for a post. (Remember what I told you about the power of grouping) I hesitate to reveal my thoughts instead of simply posting images and letting the images speak for themselves, but I will explain why I find them meaningful.

I admire words (and people that can convey them articulately). Communication has never been my strong suit- I just cannot unleash my thoughts in an adequate fashion. The internal and external do not always match up and I find this disparity frustrating. I often enjoy reading other people's words and lyrics and say "that's exactly what I couldn't pin down"

If you want to read a beautiful excerpt on the quote below I recommend Miles Stanford, Principles of Spiritual Growth. The time chapter has changed my life but the whole book is wonderful.



I have to preach this to myself because I can be quite a bit selfish.





I took this picture below when Tony and I were in New Orleans.


The majority of these little wits of wisdom are from The Bottom of the Ironing Basket plus Pink Wallpaper.
