Thoughts from the week.

My favorite thoughts and phrases from the week....

On mornings ......"Alarm clock bad. Coffee good". (from my mother's coffee mug)

On a daily quiet time.... "A mother of small children gets a dozen unpleasant surprises a day! She needs time to settle her heart with God and be a growing Christian" (Anne Ortlund, Disciplines of the Beautiful Woman)

In song.... "Be still and know that He is God, Be still and know that He is holy. Be still O restless soul of mine, bow before the prince of peace, let the noise and clamour cease" (Steven Curtis Chapman)

Out of the mouths of babes... "Mommy, you are my BEST girl" (Andrew, age 3)

While shopping.... "Ma'am, did you realize this outfit was 30% off today?" (Sales clerk in children's boutique)

In print..... "No! She wept. Oh, God, I'm sorry, I'm so sorry. I'll take it back. I'll do anything...". Yet even as she reached out, the defilement disappeared and he stood before her, perfect again. "I am the way Sarah. Follow me." (Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers)

Happy Weekend and
Much Love,

I'll have to pick up "Redeeming Love" and add it to my list of reads. That one passage hooked me!

And boy, do I need your mom's coffee mug! ;D

I like the quotes! I love that book, by the way. Oh, and on another subject, I didn't realize until I was back in the States for a few months, just how very much you do look like Kathering McPhee! I can see why people say that to you. She's very beautiful, so I think that's a big compliment!
Blessings!
