Quote Challenge – Day Two

Does it mean consecutive days? Sorry…didn’t make that one!

I was nominated to participate in the Quote Challenge. I will give it a go, and try not to slave over which quotes to use…many more favorites than three!

For Day Two…

“I wish you enough” – Anonymous (this link sends you to the full quote)

In this busy world full of the desire for instant gratification, more things and, perhaps, lack of attention to the important things, I wish YOU enough.

Apparently, this quote is anonymous. Frankly, I don’t care who said it, when, where or why! The concept is what I think is so meaningful. I will be the first to admit that I am totally blessed with much…and I am grateful. I don’t have as much as some, but more than I might have ever thought about. What I know, though, in my heart is that enough is all I really need. And enough of the good things…love, family, friends, health…the things that don’t have a price. Like MasterCard (NOT) – PRICELESS!!!

My thanks and gratitude, from my heart, for all those who grant me this joy. I have enough!

I wish YOU enough!

Today, my three nominees are:

Jo – my very brand-new friend at charlieandjo (don’t hold it against me already)

Norm – so he can post something with or without a picture at miscellaneousmusingsofamiddleagedmind

Bekki – who says great things, so who would she quote? thecreativitycauldron

Quote Challenge – Day One

My quote for day one…the first one that came to my mind…

“Be still and know”

stones and white sand 3

This quote is from the Bible. (Psalm 46:10) It is completed with “that I am God”.

In itself, this quote could lead to much discussion. What is your belief in God? Does it imply a rigid God? I could go on, but you can go where you might with these questions.

What I like about the quote is the “be still” part. We are so rarely still in this busy world. When we are still and we listen, we can hear/learn so much about ourselves, the world, others. Be still and know your own heart. Be still and hear the needs of others. Be still and know who/what your source (or higher power, or whatever word you would use for God) is.

My nominees for today are:

Alex – https://ontheroadgoingnowhere.wordpress.com/about/

Emily – http://emilyannlou.com/about/

Carrie – https://mamacarriemakes.wordpress.com/about/

So, thank you, Berryduchess. I am going to go away from the computer now and find a still place to just be for a few minutes! Hope everyone finds even little moments of still time today!

It is always a surprise and a blessing to be nominated/granted any award. The idea is to share my purpose in blogging…

Well, to be honest, I started my blog, Facetfully, as a means to promote my Etsy shop. (That said, here is the link to that.) A big “however” follows that statement. Now that I have been blogging for a while, I find it really has nothing to do with that shop on Etsy. Actually, it seems I spend more time blogging than working on items for my shop! So, why blog now? It is an interesting addiction, you might say. I have made “friends” that I really enjoy “following” here. I find it much more interesting than Facebook or Twitter and it is a place where people feel free to express themselves. I am not one who likes to talk about the weather or your new red shoes very much, but I do like the real things that life is about. I read blogs from those who are younger, older, male, female, healthy, ill, happy, depressed, outspoken, shy…need I go on? I am inspired by them all. I begin to wonder how their days are going. I hope to be able to spark a good thought or a smile in them, at least occasionally. Generally, I am hooked on this thing called the blogosphere.

I have seen my blog evolve, as all things do in life. My posts are generally shorter in length and I have been using it as a way to get back into photography. Following photographers is inspiring to me and some of the challenges are fun.

I am not terribly outspoken. I believe people should be able to have their own opinions and beliefs, so I won’t generally go on about politics or religion or other hot topics. I do have my opinions, but that is not my mission. I write from my heart, often on the spur of the moment. I wish all to be at peace. I think we are here to love. Yes, I am probably the perfect “Pollyanna”…until I get mad! Thankfully, that is not often!

Gail, thanks again. I think I have rambled on enough here. My selections for the Encouraging Thunder Award are:

http://simplelivingover50.com/about/ – a blog that inspires about many things, including health and life (and look at his garden!)

http://inoirvelvet.com/about/ – a gorgeous blog…beautiful images and 6 to 50 word stories

http://beautifullifewithcancer.com/about/ – sharing from the heart about life, family, God and just good inspiration

What do I dislike about awards? The fact that I would nominate MANY of the blogs I follow. So, until next time, I hope you check out the ones noted here and thanks to all for sharing!

Be IN-joy!
