Saturday Meditations

Some things to mull over today as you go though your Saturday:

That they may have a little peace, even the best dogs are compelled to snarl occasionally. - William Feather

Measure not Gods love and favor by your own feelings. The sun shines as clearly in the darkest day as it does in the brightest. The difference is not in the sun, but in some clouds which hinder the manifestation of the light thereof. - Richard Sibbes

Meditate, engage in daily prayers, read uplifting books, commune with Mother Nature--in some way try to remove yourself from the discord of the everyday world that invades your sense of inner peace. - Stephen R. Covey

I love your new quotes, keep them coming! I have some pumpkin carvings to post, but you have trumped me on them, for sure!!

The quotes are great. Spent some of the afternoon walking and it's a beautiful day here and did not bring a phone. Bliss!

Doris Sturm said...

Are those pumpkins real pumpkins? Amazing work!

Can't help chuckling to myself when I read your blog title. Had a friend in college called Cathy Krone. Well, kinda similar!

Sandie - What fun it is getting to know you! I like your style - some thought-provoking quotes: "Wow, Sandie's really making me think today" - and then some of the scariest pumpkins I have ever seen: "Wow, Sandie's got another side to her!"

Had fun here today - both with the thinking, and the saying, "Ewww...how creepy!" (I'm weird, I happen to like creepy...just sayin'!)

Have a great weekend!

Thank you so very much for such an honorable mention! Thank you also for mentioning Ann, and for not including the one of David Letterman. For it really does spoke me.
