a New thought Thursday




Miscellaneous Monday…NEW stuff i gotta share


Happy Monday!

This peach-colored iris wowed me! I see variations of purple iris all the time, but not many of this hue.

And other miscellany: I use the notes app on my phone A LOT!…just for random stuff.  I recently cleaned out my notes (and stuck a few of them here :o)…so did i really ‘clean’ them out, or is this the equivalent of paper shuffling?

  1. Quote from the book,  The Caliph’s House…page 257:  “…seek out what is not immediately seen. On the surface, the carrot is a mere tuft of green, but under the ground there’s a root waiting to be found.”
  2. A question I heard (or read) somewhere:  “When was the last time you had a defining spiritual experience?”
  3. GOALS (Gaining Opportunities And Life Skills)
  4. “Think to Thank”  and “Observe Then Serve”
  5. “It’s better to be at the bottom of the ladder you want to climb than the top of the one you don’t”.
  6. “Most successful people start with dominant talent and then add skills, knowledge and practice to the mix”.
  7. “All truly great thoughts are conceived while walking”

Have a great day! Do or learn something NEW!


Miscellaneous Monday…NEW stuff i gotta share {Look, Look, Look!}


Happy Monday!  I’ve posted this photo before….(along with Snoopy too {here}.  But this photo just went soooo perfectly with my NEW random, miscellaneous findings this week, I had to re-post them!


For starters, I LOVED this quote:

“As long as you are proud you cannot know God. A proud man is always looking down on things and people: and, of course, as long as you are looking down you cannot see something that is above you.”

~ C.S. Lewis


And lastly…a great post quoting Psalm 121 at Tidbits n Treasures

It LOOKS like my theme of the day is: LOOK UP!  Have a great day.  Do or Learn something NEW!



Thursday’s Thought


As I’ve previously mentioned, I’ve made a goal to use photos from my own stash to post along with quotes I love.  Well, I really like this photo of a rodeo clown, but as you can imagine, I haven’t come up with any good quotes to go along with it! 😮 !!!  So, for today’s THURSDAY THOUGHT, I attempted a Haiku:


Warm Summer Evening

The Clown Elicits A Smile

Do Unto Others

a NEW project (memorization program)


***Francis Bacon, the philosopher, scientist, and author said, “It is not what we eat but what we digest that makes us strong; not what we earn but what we save that makes us rich; not what we learn but what we remember that makes us wise.”***

Isn’t that so true!?!?!   So…I’ve started a NEW memorization program!  It’s awesome and so far so good!!! (I’ve been at it a little over a week:o)  There are sooo many things I can use this program with….scriptures, vocabulary words, quotes, foreign languages etc etc etc.!  I’m starting with scriptures.  My son introduced me to this program (see instructions he emailed me below…sorry for the quality, it looks like it’s been passed around a bit).  My son has memorized hundreds of scriptures!  It’s a GREAT program which I think I’ll try to implement with various projects!  

Have a great day everyone!  Learn (AND REMEMBER) something NEW today!
