Sunday Dinner: Courage

in the courage that drives one person

to stand up for another.”

It comes from struggles and hardship. 

Everything that you go through

prepares you for the next level.”

“I love to walk.

Walking is a spiritual journey

and a reflection of living.

Each of us must determine which path to take

and how far to walk;

we must find our own way,

what is right for one may not be for another.

.

Edie Littlefield Sundby

“I am the bended, but not broken.

I am the power of the thunderstorm.

I am the beauty in the beast.

I am the strength in weakness.

I am the confidence in the midst of doubt.

I am Her!”

but it will get better, I promise.

It’s time for you to move on.

Get going.”

  1. your photos are beautiful – each with that quietude and winter mood – and then the quotes with the theme of encouragement and wise perspective on setback made for a nice pairing.

    “strength doesn’t come from winning”
    wish more people realized this – and I have seen some “ruined or spoiled people” who maybe won a little too much and needed some set back.

    and lastly – the “get going” ending – was like an encouraging thump.

    • We all need a little ‘thump’ from time to time 😉 Those of us of ‘a certain age’ get it, about strength from overcoming adversity. But honestly, don’t we all like winning a bit more ❤ ❤ ❤ ? Thank you for your kind words on the photos. Let us enjoy the seasons as they unfold….

      • well some winning is needed – or maybe some success or maybe achievement might fit better with my thoughts – cos it fuels and has a place –
        but too much winning loses its sweetness – sometimes one win can feel so sweet when it was fought hard for – oh I dunno
        cos I have also had success come after such a hard fight it was only laden with bitterness and seriously – most (maybe all) of the joy was lost – sad but true – ya know?
