Weekend Wisdom

Figs, Grapes and Olives

Whatever happens in life, make a commitment to be joyful in God our Savior. He is with us every step of the way no matter how steep the mountains or how low the valley.

“Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will be joyful in God my Savior. The Sovereign LORD is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to tread on the heights.”

Weekend Wisdom – Happy Sunday!

Good Morning,

I am under the weather and have been since yesterday.  So I thought today’s Weekend Wisdom needed to be quotes containing the word “sun.”

Enjoy and may your day be sunny even if it is raining.

It is so small a thing to have enjoyed the sun, to have lived light in the spring, to have loved, to have thought, to have done.

Matthew Arnold

Hope is like the sun, which, as we journey toward it, casts the shadow of our burden behind us.

Samuel Smiles

The sun, with all those planets revolving around it and dependent on it, can still ripen a bunch of grapes as if it had nothing else in the universe to do.

Galileo Galilei
