3 Day Quote Challenge – Day 3

3 Day Quote Challenge – Day 3

Some people insist on holding on to grudges. Some people seem to be held captive by their negative thinking. Some people find someone else to blame for everything bad that comes their way. These are unhappy people, who will never be able to come out from under that dark cloud hanging over them, until they are able to give up their bad attitude. I know from my own experience that I needed medication to dispel the gloom, and let the sun peek through once more, but I wasn’t purposely seeing worst case scenarios in my depressed state, and I certainly didn’t want to stay stuck there. So, if you can change your attitude, do it, and, if you can’t do it on your own, get help. Life is too short to spend trying to move forward on a flat tire.

Rules:

  1. Thank the person that nominated you.
  2. Write one quote each day for three consecutive days (3 quotes total) I hope you can forgive me for not doing them consecutively.
  3. Explain why the quote is meaningful for you.
  4. Nominate three bloggers each day to participate in the challenge

3 Day Quote Challenge – Day 2

3 Day Quote Challenge – Day 2

I chose this quote because hard times are sure to come your way if you are a living human being. It’s just a part of the normal life cycle in this mixed up, by that I mean fallen, world in which we live. But even though very few will be spared a walk down the rocky road of hardship or heartbreak, there is always hope. Like the song says, “The Sun’ll Come Out Tomorrow.” And for the Doctor Who fans out there, like me, I have heard him say more than once, “While there’s life, there’s hope.” And for those of us who take the long view, our hope is found in Christ, who is much wiser than Annie, or the Doctor.

Rules:

  1. Thank the person that nominated you.
  2. Write one quote each day for three consecutive days (3 quotes total) Please forgive me for not posting on consecutive days.
  3. Explain why the quote is meaningful for you.
  4. Nominate three bloggers each day to participate in the challenge

3 Day Quote Challenge – Day 1

3 Day Quote Challenge – Day 1

I’ve participated in this challenge before, but I did enjoy it, so, when I got nominated again, I thought, “why not?” There are so many great quotes out there, so many worth sharing.

I chose this quote because conversation and relationship are built on two way communication. One’s words should always be spoken with the listener’s feelings in mind, and our ears should always be ready to listen, especially when someone needs a shoulder to cry on. I’m sorry to say that I have some work to do in my speaking and listening, but I do strive to speak and listen in the way as portrayed in this quote.

Rules:

  1. Thank the person that nominated you.
  2. Write one quote each day for three consecutive days (3 quotes total) Please forgive me if mine aren’t consecutive.
  3. Explain why the quote is meaningful for you.
  4. Nominate three bloggers each day to participate in the challenge

A Chance Meeting

A Chance Meeting

I see them as I walk. They are black, brown, or white. They limp on old arthritic legs, or trot with jaunty steps. They are short and stubby, or tall and thin. Some have long hair, some short. Some eyes meet mine, and others ignore me as I pass. I even saw one being pushed in a stroller! What am I meeting as I ramble through the neighbourhood? Dogs, of course. The dog walkers take their family pets out of their yards and into the world, where they can enjoy some new and unfamiliar sights and smells. The friendly ones stop to get aquatinted, and we may share a moment or two if their person is willing to pause. The contentment of these canines is evident on their faces. While they are out with their beloved owner, all is right with their world.
