Thoughtful Spot Sunday . . . .



"To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich, to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly; to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart; to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.  In a word, to let the spiritual, unhidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.  This is to be my symphony."

William Henry Channing
1810-1884


Sunday Blessings and  Hugs,

  6. Hi Barb - this is such a good quote, and one we can incorporate into our lives - I think it goes right along with the Bible.

    Hope things are going well for you and yours, Barb - Lucky you winning the giveaway!

    Aspens - ahhh. We don't have them down here, but they sure are pretty! Take care ---
