New Beginings!

As we move forth into a new year; I love the opportunity for change and new beginnings, that second chance on life!

We all have big changes in our lives that are more or less a second chance.
Harrison Ford

Change your thoughts and you change your world.
Norman Vincent Peale

When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.
Victor Frankl

Works of Art:
Hand Blown Glass by Wayne Fitzpatrick! Also a stunning vintage pendant recently added to our collection.
One of a kind treasures, I love the little flowers in the glass, unbelievable!
(My photography doesn’t do them justice!)

May the Lord bless this New Year!

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
When I get so hurried with life and the emergencies of the day, I forget what really matters!
I am one of those people who need that quiet time each day to refresh my soul.
Emerson’s quote is just the perfect reminder for me today!

“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Thought of the Day:

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
-- Marianne Williamson
