~PERPETUAL QUIETNESS~

“Humility is perpetual quietness of heart. It is to have no trouble. It is never to be fretted or vexed, irritable or sore, to wonder at nothing that is done to me, to feel nothing done against me. It is to be at rest when nobody praises me and when I am blamed or despised; it is to have a blessed home in myself where I can go in and shut the door and kneel to my Father in secret and be at peace, as in a deep sea of calmness, when all around and about is trouble.”

Have a blessed Memorial Day as you honor those who gave all they had...and then some.
  Love to you~

Oh my goodness, this is absolutely beautiful! If we can only grasp it and truly live it, life would be so SWEET! I must copy these words and keep it to savor again when I slip and allow harsh words or other insenstive behavior which comes across my way to haunt my thoughts...let them all be washed away with knowing God is all that matters! :)

Thank you, Rebecca! :)

Hugs, Carolyn
