Daily Things

The following quotes have been very helpful and uplifting as I have been struggling with contentment in the monotonous every-day, which is even more trying when winter has been going on so long. The quotes don't all emphasize the same aspect of the day-to-day, but they all have something to do with the day-to-day, so I decided to post them all together. Think seriously about each one; let the truth sink into your hearts. God wants us to use the everyday things in life to glorify Him as well as the great and grand things.

"This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever; in its place is something that you have left behind...let it be something good."
-Author Unknown


"We must try to take life moment by moment. The actual present is usually pretty tolerable I think, if only we refrain from adding to its burden that of the past and the future."
- C.S. Lewis


"If we have God's assurance behind us, the most amazing strength becomes ours, and we learn to sing, glorifying Him even in the ordinary days and ways of life."
~Oswald Chambers


"The person who would do great things well, must practice daily on little ones; and she who would have the assistance of the Almighty in important acts, must be daily and hourly accustomed to consult His will in the minor affairs of life."
-Fanny Forrester (a.k.a. Emily Chubbuck Judson)


"The true way to live is to enjoy every moment as it passes, and surely it is in the everyday things around us that the beauty of life lies."
-Laura Ingalls Wilder
