For the Love of Words by Diana
I Love Words. Like many of you I read everything. Toothpaste tubes, Cereal boxes and passing buses with their quirky signs. Words have gladdened my heart during times of sadness,inspired me to reach toward new enterprises as well as filled me with inexpressible worship for my God.
This morning I got up early and settled in with a book I have been reading. It is a self help title and has been another fortuitous read I came across by accident. In a used book store. Just what I needed to read at this time in my life.
God is Good, All the Time.
Amongst it's helpful pages this morning was a quote by Robert Louis Stevenson.
"The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at hand, the path just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life's plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life."
Do the thing at hand. That has been a word I have been meditating on the past few months. When our paths are not so clear before us, do the thing at hand.
"Trust in the Lord with all of your heart and lean not on thine own understanding and He will direct your path."
What wonderful words to meditate on today.
May they be an inspiration to you as they have been to me.
Feel free to share a short word that came to you recently through a book, a friend or a blog.
