Too Good Not to Share

It caught my eye as I was walking by the bookstore door. The title was so catching that it, well, it caught me! One Month to Live by Kerry and Chris Shook.   I'm still barely into it but there are a few quotes just too good not to share:

'God created us to take risks, in faith, and to conquer the giants that paralyze us with fear.'

'For some of you, the last six months have seemed like the longest six months of your life because you have no energy and no passion for life.' How would you describe your current season of life? Does it feel like you're buried beneath frozen tundra, emotionally hibernating? Or is it more like spring, with signs of new life in view?

'The mundane can become magnificent if we're plugged into each hour and each other.'

And last (for now)...

'If you waste your time, you waste your life.'

I'm telling you - great stuff!

Great quotes. I'd be copying a lot of them.

Here is one I heard at church,

"... if nothing changes ... nothing changes."

Love it!

Oooh, "if you waste time, you waste life" is especially good for me right now. I think that one may be going up on the fridge!

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Bev.

I just made a copy of your "Too Good Not To Share". I plan to keep it handy in a pocket, in case I need to read it more.

Have already got the house prepared, in case there's a showing today. Thanks for helping me remember to keep my attitude in shape.

Becky, Dave Ramsey quoted someone else when he said this: "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results." Amen to that!

Oooo, you should link these up at Breath of Life. She has a weekly carnival on Monday's for us to share a great quote that touched us out of anything we are reading that week.
