"Both harder and easier than what we are trying to do....The real problem of the Christian life comes the very moment you wake up each morning. All your wishes and hopes for the day rush at you like wild animals. And the first job each morning consists simply in shoving them all back; in listening to that other voice, taking that other point of view, letting that other larger, stronger, quieter life come flowing in. And so on, all day..."

-C.S. Lewis

This wonderful quote was spotted at Laney's sister's blog, Running with Sissors.
Laurie is a relatively new blogger...but she's a natural, just like her big sister.(Laurie is facing many changes and writes a very touching blog about it on Aug. 15th)
And ya know what, their mom blogs too! And she is funny and wise and has raised a super family, find her at Jersey Girl
(Check sidebar for Laney's link)


Now, back to that great quote. I would add fears and worries to the things that come rushing at me like wild animals each morning. But Mr. Lewis sends us in the right direction...

...listening to that other voice, taking that other point of view, letting that other larger, stronger, quieter life come in...


I just love that....so much!


This quote brought a little tear yesterday, too.

Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. ~Christopher Robin


Well..that just breaks my heart.
Doesn't everyone need to hear those tender words whispered to them...
just once.


Always Remember,
Donna
