One reason I love quotations is because it becomes clear that wise people of various times, places and experiences come to the same conclusions.

Marley your last quote reminded me of a book I read as a teenager, about 50 years ago. Our church had a little lending library and I found a story that I checked out because it had horses in it. But I've remembered for all these years for the beauty of the story. In the story a troubled girl was taken in by a foster family, who were involved with a rodeo or circus. The foster mom changed her life and made her a true part of the family, as she taught her the 121st Psalm which was her focus as she learned to stand up on a horse as it ran.

<< Psalm 121 >>
King James Bible
I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.

2 My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.

3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.

4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.

5 The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.

6 The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.

7 The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.

8 The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.

Susan

Susan, I know that psalm. Absolutely beautiful. Thank you for sharing it with me again. It is comforting to read such words.
Hugs to you.

Marly,
I'm one of those people who will talk with strangers in lines as I wait for checkout at the grocery or other store. I've met some wonderful people and heard some heart tugging stories from people who just want someone to smile and listen. What an easy gift to give!

"If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace, you are living in the present." Lao Tzu

Hope I'm not repeating something I've already posted, but even if I am this one is worth hearing again.

Susan
