I did a boo-boo. I didn’t post Day 2’s quotes until really late last night or super early this morning so Day 2 and Day 3 are going to coincide. Now, that I confessed to that….moving on.
June is a good month, a great month actually. My youngest daughter was born in this month and this is the month I got married oh so many or so few years ago, depending on how you look at it. To newlyweds it might be a long time, but to those that have been married for a couple decades, it’s a short time 🙂
So in honor of our anniversary month and the birthday of my youngest child, my quotes will center on those two things. And since I failed to make a birthday tribute to my smiling, happy little girl, I will honor her with a quote just for her. But, the highest honor here goes to the Lord as He is the reason I have been so blessed.
Quote #1 focuses on the many different ways we can receive grace from God to endure or sustain our lives.
I asked for strength…And God gave me difficulties to make me strong. I asked for wisdom…And God gave me problems to solve. I asked for prosperity…And God gave me a brain and energy to work. I asked for courage…And God gave me danger to overcome. I asked for love…And God gave me troubled people to help. I asked for favors…And God gave me opportunities. I received nothing I wanted, but I received everything I needed. – Unknown
Quote #2 as promised, goes to my husband. I once said that you’d probably hear much about him as he is the part that makes me whole. I will forever be thankful for God’s help in bringing us together. And I want to do whatever I can to help him to be the very best that he can be.
A wife of noble character is her husband’s crown, but a disgraceful wife is like decay in his bones. – Proverbs 12:4
Quote #3 is to honor my beautiful, happy, smiling, loving, tow-headed, lively 3 y/o whom fills that space in my heart that only she can fill. Nobody else would suffice in the space reserved just for her. But, that same sentiment applies to all 8 of my children. She, as with each of her siblings, has taught me many things about being a mother. I am grateful for each of them.
Her Smile makes me smile. Her laugh is infectious. Her heart is pure and true. Above all, I love that she is my daughter. – Unknown
And that’s a wrap for the 3 day 3 a day quote challenge. As always, I hope the words have encouraged someone. My words (or borrowed quotes in these 3 days) were meant to focus on the goodness I have been blessed with, and I am confident that it helped others as well. In my heart, I know that we can’t ever hear (or read as the case may be) too much encouragement. Remembering to pull together, to reach out to others to help lift them up is the best way to create a world of kindness and love.
In my final words for this challenge, I’d like to nominate:
And once more, many thanks to Good, Beautiful and True for the nomination to challenge. I really did enjoy it. Searching for the perfect quotes was very inspiring and rewarding. There so much to life, to God that gets skipped, ignored, or forgotten. It’s refreshing to recognize the goodness that surrounds us.
Don’t worry my nominees, if you don’t want to take part in this challenge, don’t fret. It’s not required, but it is highly encouraged.
I hope you all have a wonderful Saturday afternoon. Thanks for stopping by 🙂
