You Didn't Say Saturday

"For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men. 
It teaches us to say 'No' to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, 
upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope -- 
the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ." 

-- Titus 2:11-13

You Didn't Say Saturday

I know it has been quite a while since I have blogged. I have reasons, not excuses, as to why: homeschool, two college classes, Bible study, friends, home remodeling (actually, it's been a lot of painting), and everything in between. I do apologize for being away for a few weeks. Believe me, I have missed sharing my heart and thoughts with y'all.

So in my absence of usual blog posts, I have decided to include a "You Didn't Say Saturday" usual. I know, I know ... I do not keep up with my usual posts. But this one has me thinking. There are so many quotes out there with purpose, meaning, inspiration -- and I want to share them with you. Maybe, just maybe, one quote will come from me from time-to-time. Maybe.

This one is honor of one of my best friends:

"The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, 
who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, 
who can tolerate not knowing...not healing, not curing...
that is a friend who cares." 
-- Henri Nouwen
