“True love is an act of total surrender.” –Paulo Coelho

“It takes courage… to endure the sharp pains of self discovery rather than choose to take the dull pain of unconsciousness that would last the rest of our lives.”–Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of “A Course in Miracles”

“We all at certain times in our lives find ourselves broken. True strength is found in picking up the pieces.” –Jill Pendley

20140926-181542.jpgI am grateful for rain. I love the sound of it as it hits the window panes and roof, and I am sure the trees and plants outside are gobbling it up–since we have such a drought problem here. I love how it cleans the air, but more so, how it makes snuggling in bed so much more cozy!

“The big question is whether you are going to be able to say a hearty yes to your adventure.” –Joseph Campbell

“Prayers are always answered. You don’t have to beg or make deals with the Creator when you pray. The key is to pray with faith, knowing and believing that, what you ask for, you already have!” —Iyanla Vanzant
