Be Alive



"Life is what we are alive to. . .
Be alive to. . .goodness, kindness, purity, love, history, poetry, music, flowers, stars, God, and eternal hope."

  1. What a terrific quote! If this doesn't embody our passions, why we would even invest our time in blogging, and how all things fall beneath the umbrella of God... I love this!

  4. Wonderful quote and I love the picture. I'm looking for the perfect lace to put on the shelves of my hutch. I want it to be old - to look old or handmade. Maybe I'll find it soon and post a picture. Thanks again for your wonderful inspiration. ~Adrienne~
