Day 21 - Quote

Thinking over the tons of quotes I have collected, and narrowing it down to one favorite is next to impossible for me.   There have been so many quotes over the years that have spoken to me, but I've narrowed it down to just a few.  First, a couple of older quotes:
This has been a favorite quote for years, and one that I try to keep in the forefront of my mind as I love my life, day to day.  I was raised in a church that emphasizes reaching out to others and serving others, but only later did I realize that this quote originated with John Wesley, the founder of our denomination (Methodist).  
I've had this picture as the screen-saver on my phone for quite a while.  It's a good reminder to take action rather than just sitting on the sidelines complaining about my situation.  

And some quotes that have more recently become meaningful to me:
While I have tried to "write" my life story well, there have been lots and lots of mistakes and I find myself editing it daily.   The good news for me God gives us to begin again every single moment!

And last, but not least:
I'm trying to live more on the front row, but I generally find myself more in the middle---not too bad a place to be, I suppose.  Especially if you have a someone great seated beside you!!

If you want to take a look at some other ideas/quotes that I find inspirational, check out my Pinterest board.

Thank you for the post. For more on John Wesley, I would like to invite you to the website for the book series, The Asbury Triptych Series. The trilogy based on the life of Francis Asbury, the young protégé of John Wesley and George Whitefield, opens with the book, Black Country. The opening novel in this three-book series details the amazing movement of Wesley and Whitefield in England and Ireland as well as its life-changing effect on a Great Britain sadly in need of transformation. Black Country also details the Wesleyan movement's effect on the future leader of Christianity in the American colonies, Francis Asbury. The website for the book series is www.francisasburytriptych.com. Please enjoy the numerous articles on the website. Again, thank you, for the post.
