Words of wisdom

Post some words of wisdom that speak to you

Q: Why do you cry so often?
A: For the same reason I laugh so often...because I'm paying attention 
~ Glennon Doyle Melton

Ring the bells...that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in.
~Leonard Cohen

We need only reach out to discover that God reaches back. We are led a step at a time even when we feel we are alone. Sometimes God talks to us through people. Sometimes God reaches us through circumstances or coincidence. God has a million ways to reach out to us, and when we are open to it, we begin to sense the touch of God coming to us from all directions~ Julia Cameron

I have faith that God will show you the answer. But you have to understand that sometimes it takes a while to be able to recognize what God wants you to do. That's how it often is. God's voice is usually nothing more than a whisper, and you have to listen very carefully to hear it. But other times, in those rarest of moments, the answer is obvious and rings as loud as a church bell.

~Nicholas Sparks, The Last Song

Hello Friend!
I’m thinking of you this morning, wherever you are, and of the difference you’re making.
You might think it’s small.
You might think no one really sees.
You might think you should do something bigger, better, more spiritual
But lean in and listen close…
The best gift you can offer this world is you
And that’s what you’re doing–
just putting messy, glorious, imperfect, made-new you out there. 
In your home, your family, your office, your community, your world. 
We’d miss you if you weren’t there. It just wouldn’t be the same. And no one could take your place. 
So keep it up, my friend. Keep giving and loving and living right where you are. 
It matters more than you know, more than you see. 
{And you do too.}
xoxo—Holley Gerth

Thanks for reading,
Love, Lolly

  1. I love Leonard Kohen. Sad that he is gone but grateful for the words he left is. I listen to, "You Got Me Singing" over and over again.
