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!!!

Pink Sunday Blessings

"Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abides alone: but if it die, it brings forth

much fruit."  John 12:24

You can tell the size of a Christian by what it takes to stop him. Hebrews 12:1 says we are to "run

with patience the race that is set before us." And this word "patience" is not used in the sense that

we use the word. It literally means "endurance."

Everybody knows that a runner is going to win or lose primarily by his endurance. You cannot

quit. When it hurts, you cannot quit. When your lungs are on fire, you cannot quit. When your

feet feel like lead, you cannot quit. When your sides ache, you cannot quit! You'll never be a

spiritual athlete if you're a quitter! No pain. No gain.

Thank God for His power that enables you to run the race and gain the victor's crown!

Have a wonderful and blessed Sunday!

Lots of Love!!!

Wow - you really had me thinking on that one Cathy. I love how you explain that patience means endurance in that verse. And I also love all of the quotes throughout your blog - especially by C.S. Lewis. Those are great and so inspiring. May we all aspire to be Christians with endurance, that are impossible to stop!
