With A Little Help
I am quote hoarder. I know. There was no surprise in that sentence. The cool thing is that I am not the only one. Again, no surprise. Still, I visit a number of quoting bloggers from time to time just to see what I can find and occasionally I stumble across a jewel or even a life altering (to me) saying. This week I send out many thanks to Todd in Hell’s Kitchen for the following quote he posted on his “And I Quote Blog” on May 1, 2008. It is a quote that I have now read over and over … almost to the point of memorization. I have sent it to countless friends as I believe every woman of faith needs to hear these words. I, myself, have had to let it sit in … to absorb.
“When the mirror is no longer telling you what you thought you would like to hear and the culture is no longer telling you what you thought you would like to hear, sometimes that’s when you finally have ears for what God wants to say to you. That’s when you hear him say things sweeter than the mirror ever told you and sweeter than the culture ever told you. That’s when you finally realize that you are loved, and you finally realize you are enough... When you have really allowed that in, you emerge into a different place within yourself, and from that place … LIFE ROCKS!”
~Marianne Williamson, Beliefnet
[I did change it a little by putting “Life Rocks” in capital letters as I felt those two words needed as much emphasis as possible.]
Thank you, again, Todd! I would never have found this quote if you had not posted it first!
