A SOUL STIRRING COMMENT ON MY POST


-->Here is another mind provoking comment by Danielle. As you can see she has used inspiring quotes from various authoritative sources to embellish and reinforce her thoughts. I am sure you would like to visit Danielle at Danielle’s realm and be enriched with her messages of inspiration.

Danielle&Hannah said...“Life's challenges are not supposed to paralyse you, they're supposed to help you discover who you are.” –Bernice Reagon

"While we may not be able to control all that happens to us, we can control what happens inside us." --Benjamin Franklin

To everything there is a season and a reason under heaven [Ecclesiastes]. God understands why and we may not always. That’s what makes Him God and us human. God is the author while we are the illustrators. This life is the only story we will make, so we must make it count.

Fear is the thief of dreams. Sometimes life and situations may make us fearful – we are fragile – but that fragility should demonstrate how blessed we are and how much hope there is. Strength is most often discovered when one looks outside themselves. There is a whole world out there.

Life is what we make it and yes it requires much effort, sometimes generations.

'The stronger the breeze, the stronger the trees'

Joseph, I agree that the “idle mind is the devil’s workshop’ because you can’t stop the bird from flying over your head, but you CAN stop it from nesting in your hair…

Our thoughts and choices produce the very fruit of our life. We need to fill our hearts and minds with the things which help us bear the fruit we would like. Being fertilised by faith and Gods pure love ~ not forgetting to fertilise others with love also.

Proverb. As a man thinks in his heart, so is he…

Like “Brian Miller” said – the eyes are the windows to the soul – are our windows clear enough to find the hope and beauty that IS out there… "While we may not be able to control all that happens to us, we can control what happens inside us." --Benjamin Franklin

Life is a sobering thought.

Best regards,
Danielle :)

Joseph, I don't remember seeing these hadicrafts (first 2 shots) anywhere in India... Are they typical from the area/state where you live? They look lovely!

Rajesh said...

That is truly inspiration comment. Very nice.

Danielle&Hannah said...

Joseph, thank you for your kind post. It is interesting how the Lord works.. in the last few days.. a devastating thing has happened.. I sense and see that God is building my character through it and allowing me to 'eat my words' i.e. see that I can not just speak them but actually live them through every day and every situation. It is easy to live positive and encouraged when life is smooth.. but it is when the BIG storm comes that He is interested in us really persevering and making it through.. thanks be to God for people such as you and how our paths interact! I look this fear in the face and say.. mountain.. be thou removed because my God in me is greater than he that is in the world.

Joseph, I don’t think I have ever expressed it in ‘typing’ – I do pray for you and your family, prayers for God’s peace that passes all understanding and His love that heals and protects you.
1 Corinthians 4: 8We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;
Love from us,
Danielle & Hannah

You had pondered the words deeply. Thanks for sharing.

It takes a thought to make a word
and it takes some words to make an action
it takes some work to make it work
it takes some good to make it hurt
it takes some bad for satisfaction

from a song of jason mraz...

It takes a crane to build a crane
it takes two floors to make a story
it takes an egg to make a hen
it takes a hen to make an egg
there is no end to what I’m saying

the tittle of the song is Life is Wonderful.

Thanks and thanks for visiting and leaving such nice words, it shows deep inside you, you have a heart that is beautiful.

Lucy said...

BabYpose said...

Hello Joseph
I like the Benjamin Franklin quote - someone wise once told me that our thoughts are merely electrical impulses - so why let them whirl around and around in our heads as worries?

simply beautifully captured shots....inspirational post!

Merle said...

Hi Joseph ~~ Greetings. Thank you
for your wonderful post and words.
Thanks for your words about my fall, but I am quite OK thankfully.
Daffodills always make me think of
William Wordsworth too. We learned to recite it at school, many years ago. I plan to be more careful in
future, Regards, Merle.

Life's challenges are not supposed to paralyse you, they're supposed to help you discover who you are.
