Many spelling mistakes---hmmm no spell checking???

Anne of Avonlea quotes

"After all...I belive the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softy, like pearls slipping off a string.

"...they found a road leading into the heart of acres of glimmering beech and maple woods, which were all in a wondrous glow of flame and gold, lying in a great purple stillness and peace.
"It's as if the year were kneeling to pray in a vst cathedral full of mellow stained light, isn't it?"

Commenting on the name Lavendar--It's so suggestive of sweetness and old-fashioned graces and 'silk attire.'

....a lovely idea....Living so that you beautify your name, even if it wasn't beautiful to begin with, making it stand in people's thoughts for something so lovely and pleasant that they never think of it by itself."

trying picture

answered prayer

Just praising God for the Thursday Beth Moore Study in Daniel. Had so many answers to prayer and a real sharing from the hearts of the women. May God continue to show himself powerfully, majestically, and personally.

Quote from Martin Smith's The Word is very near you----"Our prayer is not making conversation with God. It is joining the conversation that is alreaday going on in God. It is being invited to participate in the relationships of intimacy between Father, Son and Holy Spirit."

one purpose

One of our main purposes for living, aside from glorifying God, is to be a blessing to those around us.

First Thoughts

I will start with a quote from Anne of Avonlea:

"We make our own lives wherever we are, after all. College can only help us to do it more easily. They are broad or narrow according to what we put into them, not what we get out. Life is rich and full here--everywhere--if we can only learn how to open our whole hearts to its richness and fulness."
