Most Uplifting Quote

Some soothing greenery.

This morning, my mother sent me a forwarded e-mail from one of her favorite sights. Sometimes these quotes are beautiful, and sometimes, I find them barbed with intention of what my life should be and isn’t. That’s probably just me projecting, but nonetheless, is how I sometimes feel. Today’s quote, however, struck a chord with me and I wanted nothing less than to shout a hearty “Amen!!!” Since, it is still early for some members of my family, I held back, but I wanted to share it with you:

“Prayer is the place of refuge for every worry, a foundation for cheerfulness, a source of constant happiness, a protection against sadness.” ~ St. John Chrysostom

That just lifted me up, you know? You all know that I have my “prayer chair” and that I find such refuge when I swing in it, but this goes beyond that. I want to be a cheerful, worry-free person. I strive for it. How wonderful that what I do everyday will help me to achieve that goal, and for once, I’m doing something right!!!! Yay!!!!!!!

    1. Yeah. It really touched me. We’ve been going through an extremely difficult time with child #3 and her mental health. This really helped me to let go and let God. Glad it helped you too!
