Sparks of Willingness to be Patient

Annie over at McGuffy’s Reader says:  I believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world!

Sparks and Awww Mondays

I am participating in the Sparks blog hop established and hosted by Annie from McGuffy’s Reader.  It’s a new one and a fun and inspirational one.  To see more or to participate, please click on the badge below.

I also wanted to add this to another new (for me) blog hop at Comedy Plus entitled Awww Mondays. Click on the link below for more.

I have previously posted this quite some time ago on my blog. I fell in love with this little feral guy who would often come for breakfast but I was never able to get close to him before moving away. His whereabout still haunts me.

 

Nurturing Thursday

To “give this planet a much needed shot of fun, support and positive energy”… I am dubbing Thursdays as Nurturing Thursday.

Come join in the fun!

Be like the bird who,
pausing in her flight awhile
on boughs too slight,
feels them give way beneath her,
and yet sings,
knowing she hath wings.

–Victor Hugo

Though we have rightly applauded our ancestors
for their spiritual achievements
. . .those of us who will prevail today will have done
NO SMALL THING

(Neal A. Maxwell)

I have often looked back on the history of my ancestors and thought how difficult things were for them and wondered how could they have persevered. Then I once read the words that if our ancestors could have looked into the future and seen our trials of today, they would have shuddered and wondered how on earth we could persevere.

So, I believe we are all born into the time in history for which we are best suited. Next time you think that you can’t handle your current trial, always remember that you are here, now, because you can. Have faith in the Lord and all things are possible.
