Your life is a blank slate waiting to be filled.

Only one thing is necessary : to posses God.

Fear knocked at the door. Faith answered. No one was there.
Old English Legend

Such was the rule of life! I worked my best, subject to ultimate judgement, God's not man's.-Browning

What we must do, let us love to do. Never lose an opportunity to see anything beautiful. Beauty is God's handwriting.-Kingsley

Lizette Woodworth Reese

Who is in love with loveliness,
Need not shake with cold:
For he may tear a star in two,
And frock himself in gold.

Who holds her first within in his heart,
In certain favor goes;
If his roof tumbles, he may find
Harbor in a rose.

I have always been told, in order to be happy we must seek our own happiness.
Even if you are the poorest person on earth there is happiness all around you. We must be seekers of loveliness. Seekers of what truly makes us happy, because if we aren't happy how can we make others happy.
We have free libraries with magazines and books on decorating just waiting to be checked out. If you live in an apartment and don't have room for a garden, grow yourself a windowsill garden. African violets, herbs. vines, all grow well in windows. Look for ideas they are all around you. Have a blessed day. Nita

About Me

My photo
I love beauty, whether it is in nature, literature or art. And I love music... My day feels incomplete if I haven't had a chance to listen to some good music.. I also love beautiful souls, and kind hearts.

Please pray for the protection of Israel.
And for the Jewish people who live there. May God give them the strength they need to defeat their enemies.
“To love means loving the unlovable. To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable. Faith means believing the unbelievable. Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless.”

a time
when you believe
everything is finished.
That will be the beginning."

~Wishes are free~
So why not make one?
Psalm 138:7

Though I am surrounded by troubles, my God will preserve me against the anger of my enemies. He will clench His fist against my angry enemies! His Power will save me. The Lord will work out His plans for my life- for His faithful love endures forever.
