Quote for the Day

What do you think of your pet(s)?

"Animals are such agreeable friends – they ask no questions, they pass no criticisms.” – Mary Ann Evans (aka George Eliot), 1819-1880

Our bunny, Coco, loves it when I scratch under his chin and nuzzle his nose. He’ll sit for hours if I just keep petting him. He reminds me daily of what it means to live 'simply' and 'agreeably.'
Although my kids sometimes give him a little too much love, he still seems to enjoy being part of our family. I’m so glad we have him in our lives.

Quote for the Day

Question: How many of you think prayer is a real way to communicate with deity? Why or why not?

The following Quote for the Day describes how I feel:

"Ere you left your room this morning,
Did you think to pray?
In the name of Christ, our Savior,
Did you sue for loving favor
As a shield today?

Oh, how praying rests the weary!
Prayer will change the night to day.
So, when life gets dark and dreary,
Don't forget to pray."

-Mary A. Pepper Kidder, 1820-1905

Quote for the Day

“A word is not the same with one writer as it is with another. One tears it from his guts. The other pulls it out of his overcoat pocket.” - William Wordsworth

I think today might be a 'guts' day. Time to take care of that blank screen staring back at me.
