Thank You, God!

"I can no other answer make but thanks,

And thanks, and ever thanks..."


--Sebastian, Twelfth Night, Act 3, scene 3

Shakespeare

“If the only prayer you said was thank you, that would be enough.” 
Meister Eckhart

"How blessed are some people, whose lives have no fears, no dreads; to whom sleep is a blessing that comes nightly, and brings nothing but sweet dreams."

Bram Stoker




"Home is a name, a word, it is a strong one; stronger than magician ever spoke, or spirit ever answered to, in the strongest conjuration."

Charles Dickens



"Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see."

Mark Twain



"Behold I do not give lectures or a little charity, When I give I give myself."

Walt Whitman


"To love someone means to see him as God intended him."

Fyodor Dostoevsky




"It is a bit embarrassing to have been concerned with the human problem all one's life and find at the end that one has no more to offer by way of advice than 'try to be a little kinder.'"

Aldous Huxley



"Each one of them is Jesus in disguise."

Mother Teresa





Wishing a blessed Thanksgiving to you and yours.

I have been so lovingly and infinitely blessed!

I thank God for each and every one of you!

Please keep those who are less fortunate in your prayers and hearts as well.

  5. love Mother Teresa's quote...oh so true. once, I heard a preacher say, "who knows? you might be the only Jesus someone sees today." it always makes me stop in my tracks and say a prayer.
    wonderful ending to the story on Asia; how on earth do we let people slip through the cracks? God help us but, most importantly, God forgive us.

  11. How wonderful and heart touching post this is my friend, something you know so well how to do and have experienced in your own skin. I saw a Little old lady at least 85 or more today around here, in the Street and begging for some coins and mother and I gave her some money, as all she wanted was to have lunch...can you just imagine? I prayed for her and haven't stopped thinking about her.
    I hope you had a blessed Tksgiving, along with your dearest family. Your new pic with I'm sure it's your gorgeous Little girl! Thanks for coming over to visit, I love it when you do!
    Big hugs,
    FABBY

  13. OOOH! I want that frowzy little kitten walking doggedly in between the boots of indifferent passersby! I've never been able to pass a stray kitten without picking it up and doing everything I can for it. It's a wonder I haven't turned out to one of those people who have forty cats in a small house, but so far I've always been able to find homes for them.

    You really do have a great knack for finding marvelous material of all kinds, Andie. These quotations -- and the pictures accompanying them -- were appropriately poignant and encouraging to constructive thought and action. Just right for the Season.

    I hope your dinner turned out well? I felt a little guilty at having posted that recipe, after you said you were going to give it a whirl, but it has always worked very well in all the years I've known it (almost too many to count by now, I fear ;-). Do let me know what else you served, if you want to share the details. I'd love to know.

    HAPPY DAZE!

  14. The comments from Bram Stoker and Aldous Huxley strike me as highly ironic since both of them did so much to give us nightmares and heighten our sense of anxiety, but I am glad they came to those benevolent conclusions somewhere along the line. Thank you for sharing them.

  18. You are wonderful. You remind us of what is REAL.....my writing reminds others of what unreal, dreamy, but I hope to touch on such matters as you do. I feel ashamed in a way, of being so opulent in my mind....

    Thank you for visiting me. And I suppose those animals don't dance after the cameras are gone!

    Loving thanks and wishes to you. Anita

  19. Good evening Andie! Thank YOU for visiting again, and yes, I do believe that sometimes, the animals must do wild things when we are not looking! ENJOY THE SEASON! Anita
