Finding Joy, Regarless of our Circumstances – Crumbs
“One of the secrets of getting more done is to make a to do list every day, keep it visible, and use it as a guide to action as you go through the day.” Jean De La Fontaine
“When introverts go to church, we crave sanctuary in every sense of the word, as we flee from the disorienting distractions of twenty-first-century life. We desire to escape from superficial relationships, trivial communications and the constant noise that pervade our world, and find rest in the probing depths of God’s love.” Adam S. McHugh, Introverts in the Church: Finding Our Place in an Extroverted Culture’
“To an extrovert, living alone is hell. To an introvert, living alone is paradise.” Unknown
Note: I had to include the above for our daughters Mary Beth (introvert) and Millie (extrovert). Mary Beth has graciously opened her home to Millie while she looks for a place to live in San Antonio. No problem there. Their love for God and one another blends their differences, rather than magnifying them. Right, girls?
“The goal of prayer is to live all of my life and speak all of my words in the joyful awareness of the presence of God. Prayer becomes real when we grasp the reality and goodness of God’s constant presence with ‘the real me.’ Jesus lived his everyday life in conscious awareness of his Father.” John Ortberg Jr., The Me I Want to Be: Becoming God’s Best Version of You
“Remember to light the candle of joy daily and all the gloom will disappear from your life.” Djwhal Khul
