Re: ~Daily Inspirational Quotes.....

This thread seemed to have stopped in 2007. Thought I'd add to it and see what happens.
My refrigerator magnets...

Get on your knees and thank God you're still on your feet.

Each day I make my To-Do list and the only thing I cross off is "lose mind."

We plan God laughs

smiles to everyone

Re: ~Daily Inspirational Quotes.....

Cat, if you look on the left side, right above the member's name, you can see the date of the last post. Believe51 started this in 2007 and it's kept going with some breaks in between. There's an interesting collection of quotes if you look back. Believe51, PinkGirl, Andi, Fauxgypsy, Chris, Jackie, and anybody else who used to post quotes in this thread or others who also enjoy quotes---you guys have any new ones you'd possibly want to add to the thread? Who else has some quotable quotes they want to share?

I took a look back a ways and saw Brenda (Hutchibk) posted quotes periodically too. Here's one she passed along:

"Beware what you read in medical books, you might die of a misprint..."

Oh, you said inspirational. Sorry. I'll get back to you.

Re: ~Daily Inspirational Quotes.....

Some quotes from Oct 2012 Prevention Magazine:

"They told me I had Stage 4 breast cancer.
They told me there was little hope.
They clearly don't know me."
--Bridget Spense (who is still fighting 7 years later)

"...instead of a midlife crisis, I was having a midlife opportunity."
--Lisa DePaul

Re: ~Daily Inspirational Quotes.....

"What you think you can’t handle — might actually be God handing you a gift."
"...Giving thanks isn’t a pollyanna game — but a powerhouse game-changer...."
"...And a gravelly voice speaks of cancer and a grave and a child whose name she wears around her neck, and we finger that name together and fiercely believe in a Father who knows and holds and cups like relief, like a lung, when we can’t breathe."
"And I think of everything I have chaffed against and railed about and howled to the heavens and who am I to know what is best or not — but when you bow and surrender to the sovereignty of God then you are in the posture to receive all as a gift."
Direct quotes above copied and pasted from: http://www.aholyexperience.com/2012/...nge-our-lives/ This book referred to in the link , "One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to live Life Fully" was what spurred me on to keep a Gratefulness List of some of God's ordinary and extraordinary treasures for me has been such a rich blessing.

Re: ~Daily Inspirational Quotes.....

"Not everyone should have a front row seat in our lives. There are some people in your life that need to be loved from a distance. It's amazing what you can accomplish when you let go of or at least minimize your time with draining, negative, incompatible, not-going-anywhere relationships. Observe the relationships around you. Pay attention. Which ones lift and which ones lean? Which ones encourage and which ones discourage? Which ones are on a path of growth uphill and which ones are going downhill? When you leave certain people do you feel better or feel worse? Which ones always have drama or don't really understand, know, or appreciate you? The more you seek quality, respect, growth, peace of mind, love and truth around you, the easier it will become for you to decide who gets to sit in the front row and who should be moved to the balcony of your life."

Become a possibilitarian. No matter how dark things seem to be or
actually are, raise your sights and see possibilities - always see
them, for they're always there.

Re: ~Daily Inspirational Quotes.....

“Most of us miss out on life’s big prizes.
The Pulitzer.
The Heisman.
Oscars.
But we’re all eligible for life’s small pleasures.
A pat on the back.
A kiss behind the ear.
A four pound bass.
A full moon.
An empty parking space.
A crackling fire.
A great meal.
A glorious sunset.
Enjoy life’s tiny delights.
There are plenty for all of us.”
–Source unknown

Re: ~Daily Inspirational Quotes.....

“God loved you before you were born
His arms were around you before you ever knew your mother’s embrace
You are in His thoughts a thousand times over
He loves you from the heights and from the depths of His being
His love covers you today with grace
You live in the atmosphere of His love and inhale it with every breath of your spirit”
–Roy Lessin
