Jehovah was not in the wind. And after the wind, an earthquake: Jehovah was not in the earthquake.
And after the earthquake, a fire: Jehovah was not in the fire. And after the fire, a soft gentle voice. (1Kings 19:11-12)

Words of Wisdom for the Weekend: "Far Too Easily Pleased"







"We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and s_x and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased."
~ C.S.Lewis [word altered to avoid undesirable traffic]

"You make known to me the path of life; 
in your presence there is fullness of joy; 
at your right hand are pleasures forevermore."
Psalm 16:11

  1. The pictures are adorable. The quote went straight to my heart. I wonder how many times I "settled" when true joy was waiting had I accepted it.
