Earth laughs in flowers... Ralph Waldo Emerson

A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, 'darkness' on the walls of his cell.

Sunday Blessings!!!


Men spend their lives in anticipations,—in determining to be vastly happy at some period when

they have time. But the present time has one advantage over every other—it is our own. Past

opportunities are gone, future have not come. We may lay in a stock of pleasures, as we would

lay in a stock of wine; but if we defer the tasting of them too long, we shall find that both are

soured by age.

Charles Caleb Colton

Have a wonderful Sunday!!!

God bless you all!!!

Lots of Love!!!

Yes, we need to live life NOW, and not worry about things we want to happen in the future. Thanks for the reminder. I can often be guilty of saying, "When" we do this, or "When" we do that.
Time flies and we can never get it back...

Hi Cathy, this is so true! Time does pass so quickly. We need to enjoy everyday and not worry so much about the future (I'm guilty of that) Thanks for posting this!
