Fun Monday-Inspirational Quotes...

Robin is our hostess for Fun Monday this week. The theme is: Quotable quotes and words that inspire. So here's some of my inspiration...

"Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase." - Martin Luther King, Jr.

In the bulb there is a flower; in the seed, an apple tree; In cocoons, a hidden promise: butterflies will soon be free! In the cold and snow of winter there’s a spring that waits to be, Unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see. - Hymn of Promise (Methodist Hymnal)

To have a mother's sensibility, you don't need to be female; you don't even have to have children. You just need to have a soul that cares about the future more than you care about yourself. That's what mothering is--laying down your life for the young so they can grow up into full people. - Sally Field

and from my recently discarded favorite show on CBS:
Jake Green: Did you ask Mom?
Johnston Green: Son, I'm 59 years old, I was mayor of this town since the Carter administration, I'm a retired Army Ranger, and I'm a combat veteran. Of course I asked your mother.

:-)

You reminded me I forgot to include an MLK, Jr. quote. Oh, well, mine was long enough as is.

I love the imagery of the one you used.

The Hymn of Promise is not one I'm familiar with, but there's such beauty in those words! Aptly named.

And your last Jericho conversation? Giggle-licious!

:)

I never saw JERICHO, but that conversation? I think they were eavesdropping on my dad...

The Hymn of Promise is beautiful. The father /son conversation is very amusing :)

Love the first quote, and the Jericho quote made me laugh...I remember that scene!

Actually, I'm catching up on this last season this week, and will be back to discuss it with you once I've watched it all. ;-)
