Weekend Wisdom Goes To The Birds

In anticipation of Monday’s “Movin’ and Groovin” song, I decided that “Weekend Wisdom” would go to the birds today.

Just wait till you see what I have in store for your weekly exercise, mood picker upper song on Monday.       😉

 

I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself. A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough without ever having felt sorry for itself.

D. H. Lawrence

Be as a bird perched on a frail branch that she feels bending beneath her, still she sings away all the same, knowing she has wings.

Victor Hugo

It’s best to have failure happen early in life. It wakes up the Phoenix bird in you so you rise from the ashes.

Anne Baxter

God gives every bird his worm, but He does not throw it into the nest.

P. D. James

 

Weekend Wisdom: Faith

Be like the bird that, passing on her flight awhile on boughs too slight, feels them give way beneath her, and yet sings, knowing that she hath wings. 

Victor Hugo

Weave in faith and God will find the thread. 

Author Unknown

Oh, brethren, be great believers! Little faith will bring your souls to heaven, but great faith will bring heaven to you.

C.H. Spurgeon

Faith is believing that the outcome will be what it should be, no matter what it is. 

Colette Baron-Reid

Weekend Wisdom: Carolyn Larsen

Today’s Weekend Wisdom comes from “daily inspirations of comfort” by Carolyn Larsen, published by christian art gifts.

All the water in the world, however hard it tries, can never sink the smallest ship unless it gets inside, and all the evil in the world, the blackest kind of sin, can never hurt you in the least, unless you let it in.

The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved – loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves. 

Victor Hugo

The love of God is like the Amazon River flowing down to water one daisy.
