Multitudes on Monday

“It is absurd for the Evolutionist to complain that it is unthinkable for an admittedly unthinkable God to make everything out of nothing, and then pretend that it is more thinkable that nothing should turn itself into everything.”   

“The main point of Christianity was this: that Nature is not our mother: Nature is our sister.”   


I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought; and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder. 


You say grace before meals. All right. But I say grace before the concert and the opera, and grace before the play and pantomime, and grace before I open a book, and grace before sketching, painting, swimming, fencing, boxing, walking, playing, dancing and grace before I dip the pen in the ink. 

Giving thanks today for these wonderful quotes by G.H. Chesterton, and people like Ann Voskamp who got me started with all these thankful Mondays, Tuesdays and every other day of the week.....Gratitude as a way of life, a way of living each day as if it might very well be the last......And taking that further, we give the Ultimate Gratitude to our Father, who says it doesn't have to end only begin with Him......It means that when we take our last breath here, we take our first real breath the way we were truly meant to live all along.......I am grateful for all the people this past Sunday who came up out of the waters of Baptism to new life, and a way beginning again.......Blessings #736-746

Grace and peace to you today, in Jesus wonderful name.......... Lori


  1. This was lovely-but I adored reading about Rosie....It does make sense about the first pancake too!

  2. Amen.

    I was thinking how smart you were until you gave credit for those wonderful quotes to the appropriate person.


    You're still smart.

    I am humbled by this word this morning. I especially love the quote about thanks being the highest form of thought and gratitude being happiness doubled by wonder.

    Awesome post.


  3. Harriet: If I were that smart, I would be retired already, like you...HEE HEE. Hugs to you too. Lori
