Good Sunday morning!
It's a crisp, sunny Autumn morning here at our sweet cottage on the water.
So much nicer than the rainy, cold day we had yesterday.
Although, it was a great day for reading by the fire.
After some Bible verses, I read my book I received from Sue (Shabby ESP). Sue sent "Words to Warm A Woman's Heart" (Summerside) while I was recovering from illness three years ago.
The pages are well worn, and dog-eared. I keep the book next to my favorite chair. It's full of scripture verses, and quotes from women like Helen Keller, Mother Teresa, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Joni Eareckson Tada, and many others.
There are various topics, or chapters.
My favorite one is Finding Joy.
"To be able to find joy in another's joy,
that is the secret of happiness."
Insomuch as any one pushes you nearer to God,
he or she is your friend.
Some days, it is enough encouragement just to watch the clouds break up and disappear,
leaving behind a blue patch of sky and bright sunshine that is so warm upon my face.
It's a glimpse of divinity;
a kiss from heaven.
(Taken from the chapter, Encouragement for Your Heart)
So even though yesterday seemed to be gloomy outside....
inside I was warm, and content.
"Live your life while you have it. Life is a splendid gift-there is nothing small about it."
