Good day to you! In my Susan Branch journal, Days from the Heart of the Home, I found this beautiful Helen Keller quote:
"No pessimist ever discovered the secrets of the stars, or sailed to an uncharted land, or opened a new heaven to the human spirit."
Let's put that in our pipes and smoke it, okay? (I love that saying! I can just see a bunch of old ladies gathered around a beach fire, smoking their corn cob pipes and smiling with their twinkly eyes!) I don't smoke a pipe, by the way! Just saying! (smile)
I thank my Jenny for introducing me to sweet peppers by the bag. YUM! Aren't they gorgeous? I've even been in love with them enough to take the time to make myself a lovely salad for lunch. Yesterday, I was finishing my salad after school and a bunch of kids were in the room for Homework Club. They were fascinated with my salad and the brown egg I ate. They had never seen a brown egg.
Even the peelings are pretty when we make salads.
I leave you with another quote that has to do with your faith AND your intention.
"When a man sets out on a journey to a great city, every step he takes is voluntary; he does not need to say, "I wish to go to the great city, I wish to go to the great city." That first step is an indication of his intention. He journeys without saying it, but he cannot journey without intending it."
Thank you for popping on by, friends!
