Well yes….I was busy embroidering…..I was going to try and space these out a bit more….but I am afraid I will forget to post them if I don’t get them here. Due to my crisis being averted ( for now) I will be making less progress on these, I think?
But Anyway…..I wanted to get them posted and talk about them.
I asked for some quotes from my friend on Fb ….I am always copying quotes and I have books of them…..but I was in a place of not having time or really wanting to look for what I wanted. I love my friends….they had such good ones it made my job easy and they were perfect for me. So here is the next 13 quotes:
How true is this? I tend to over analyze things and sort through every scenerio that I an think of….trying to avoid mistakes. They still happen. I have learned that my biggest lessons are my mistakes…so it’s easier to jump in. I see that a few of my kids struggle with this too….and they stop themselves from living a full experience because of it…it saddens me. Fear is from the devil!!
I am thinking this is a Maya Angelou quote…but I could be wrong. I love her philosophy on life. We get in our own way in more than 1 way. I hate that insecure -inferior feeling. I used to live in that place….I don’t anymore and it’s freeing. It’s all about freeing our own mind …not what other people do.
This is a quote by Viola Davis. I am always trying to get people around me to own who they are…once you know who you are and how you operate..life is so much easier. We have to accept our flaws and all. But also just knowing who we are…we can make our own choices and embrace ourselves.
This is a quote by Barbara Walters.
We all know how amazing she is and successful. n my own life I have made something from nothing plenty of times..in fact I thrive on it. So lets be magnificent!!
“If it is to be, it is up to me”
Well there is not much to say about this except to say…..it’s all up to us. we can accomplish great things with each step….we just have to make the choice.
“Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud”
Honestly, if you knew the house i lived in..it’s is full of negative energy and complainers. I am always trying to point out the “silver linings” ..which now I shall call rainbows. So much more cheery. I try to always be a good positive place for people to fall. 🙂
I made this quote in honor of Rob’s grandmother. She passed a few years ago. She was an AMAZING lady and she was kind, generous, thoughtful, loving and all the lovely words you can think of…she was a constant presence in Rob’s life. She would say this ….and I believe in this philosophy. It speaks volumes. I hope I am a lady like her.
How true is this? There is always a reason and a lesson after a painful rain.
Love the rainbows.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future
I was going to embroider the whole quote…but I already know the quotes myself….and I thought anyone who were to look at this later may actually want to look them up ..:) My little research project. I included 3-4 verses to look up.
I will be posting some later.
Many of you know my LOVE of Anne of Green Gables (AoGG). So I have several quotes from her in my quilt. Honestly, I use her quotes on almost a daily basis. as many of you know. I quote lines from books, movies and songs in my everyday life…..and she is one I quote often. I have to spell all Anne’s with an “E” because of Miss Anne Shirley.
“To despair is to turn your back on God”
This is also from AOGG. I find such truth in this because in our hard times we need to look to God to provide the answers, comfort and strength. we must rely on him.
I have learned that sometimes..we absolutely need to rejuvenate by re-fueling our souls with something we love. We can’t just run on an empty tank forever. so if that means a good book, a cup of tea or a hot bath…..we need to take time for ourselves. It’s important.
This is also from AoGG.
I love when my imaginations come true ….it’s magical and beautiful…and it keeps me sustained for life.
Thanks for following along. I am hoping I can keep making progress on this quilt. I am thinking of my settings to see how I am going to get them together.
more day dreaming. 🙂
Many blessings on your Sunday!
