Fave Quote Friday: On Becoming Aware & Appreciative

"think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple
in a field somewhere and don't notice it....
People think pleasing God is all God care about.
But any fool living in the world can see He's always trying
to please us back."
 ~Alice Walker (from The Color Purple)

Apologizing for not being able to post much this week due to schedule
and computer issues...but here it is Friday, and here's my fav quote for this week!


  1. I could not resist reading a couple more posts of your wonderful blog before getting back to my deep breathing exercises. Yes, I am trying to learn how to do that at least twice a day to calm myself.

    What a wonderful quote. Yes indeed -- let us all stop and smell the roses and appreciate the beauty around us in an unhurried way.

    "The world is so full of a number of things
    I’m sure we should all be as happy as kings."
    -- Robert Louis Stevenson

    . . . To which, I would add:

    If only we take the time to notice and enjoy them.

  2. @MikeB- How very wonderful that you have stopped to take a moment to enjoy and (yay!) to share a few lines of thoughtful advice. Not to mention some RLS! (Keep going you your exercises...they will help you more than you will expect!)
