The Daily Post weekly photo challenge is Lines. We took advantage of a sunny day, to try to alleviate, a little cabin fever. Our main priority was to hunt for agates, which took us to two different locations near Newport, Oregon. Rock hunting is never boring. Later on these crab pots captured my attention.
I am completing day three, of the quote challenge. I must admit, that I have enjoyed searching for quotes. The are many morsels of words to chew on. I consider myself to be a flexible person. So in my style, I am ending the challenge with not having followed directions. I choose to call it flexibility.. Lol! Well, it wasn’t funny in high school. Anyway it has been fun.. and thank you for reading.
Several days ago, I reflected on certain people that came into my life for a short duration. As I look back they appeared in my eyes to have been mature individuals of good character, integrity and displayed kindness. I see them now as quiet and gentle messengers from God. At the time, I didn’t grasp the understanding of who these people were and why I was meant to meet them in my lifetime. Now, that I am older I have an appreciation for those that I was gifted to have met. As I searched for a quote today, I thought this was fitting for what I had been pondering on lately.
On day two of this three day challenge, I would like to nominate Rachel from rachelmankowitz: the cricket files to share a quote. Rachel has an ability to make me laugh with her wit and sense of humor. She has a love for furry friends and a desire to help humanity, in a field that takes very special people, to work in that capacity. I am extremely sensitive to those that live very busy and full lives. There is absolutely no pressure to do this. Rachel is gifted as a writer, and another writer that I can visualize her work in print. I have modified this challenge, but the following are the real rules for this..
The rules for the 3 Day Quote Challenge are
- To thank the person that nominated you
- Post a quote for three consecutive days. (one quote for each day)
- Nominate 3 bloggers every day
Mama, at Mama’s Empty Nest has nominated me, to share 3 quotes for 3 days . With the continued rain and cold weather, I feel as though I have been hibernating and waiting for warm weather to show up. So, I will get out from under my comforter and participate in this challenge. Mama, writes sweet endearing short stories of faith and family. They make me think they should be in the Guideposts magazines, that I used to read, in years past.She also shares her love for photography and includes quotes for all to ponder on. Thank you Mama, for nominating me.

make my heart flutter
Strength and honor are her clothing;
She shall rejoice in time to come.
She opens her mouth with wisdom,
And on her tongue is the law of kindness.
She watches over the ways of her household,
And does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children rise up and call her blessed;
Her husband also, he praises her:
Many daughters have done well,
But you excel them all.
Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing,
But a woman who fears the Lord,
she shall be praised.
Give her of the fruit of her hands,
And let her own works praise her in the gates..
Then I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, Write: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on. Yes, says the spirit, that they may rest from their labor, for their deeds will follow them.
Revelation 14: 13
