Three Random Quotes

I have come to a point where the post-a-day challenge I took last Jan. 1 is becoming truly difficult for me to maintain. I think this is in part because I have come to expect too much of myself in terms of what I write and post. My desire is to write some pearl of wisdom that will really touch those who read it, but I have not the strength or time to do so. This week in particular is filled with too much physical pain to be able to focus on much else, and I don’t really want to write about that today.

So for My Tuesday Three I decided to take the easy way out and share three random quotes that I have received in my Quotemeal email from They are not connected in any way other than that they came to me in an email. Perhaps one will be just what someone reading my blog needed to read today.

“Pride is the utter poverty of soul disguised as riches, imaginary light where in fact there is darkness.”
      — John Climacus

“Unless the gospel is preached with contemporary relevance it has not been preached.”
      — Martin Luther

“God is in the business of restoration, and he’s been doing it for a long, long time. We’re merely his partners, his apprentices. We’re working with a pro! Today open your heart and let God’s touch bring restoration to those areas of your life that need repair. Then go and touch others with his restoring love.”
      — Amy Nappa

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

    • Thanks. God is trying to tell me something, but it’s not to give up writing each day. There are other things that He is calling me to give up, things that are not beneficial for me or a blessing to others. Thank you for the confirmation. Peace, Linda

  1. Linda, I was thinking of you today and praying. I think three quote Tuesdays sound wonderful, to me! 🙂 I was blessed by the last quote . . .go and touch someone with His restoring love. Thank you for so often being that person who touches with His restoring love. God bless you and touch and restore your body today. love and prayers!

  2. Linda! You don’t have to write when you’re sick and in pain. Only the Pharisees did stuff like that! ; ) Hahaha…

    I’m not sure why you’re feeling so bad, but when I was crippled with a migraine, I simply bailed. Sometimes there’s no other choice, it happens to everyone.

    I don’t have a great quote to share, but I will definitely pray for you whatever it is you’re going through. (God knows.) You contribute so much to the blogosphere and your friends who learn from your work. Don’t be discouraged, don’t feel guilty. Give yourself a break. ; ) Hugs…

    • Linda, Thanks. I appreciate the “encouragement.” 😉 I know I don’t have to post every day, but it is something I want to follow through with. It actually helps me to cope with whatever is going on. Tonight I wrote and scheduled tomorrow’s post, which is more about my pain and what helps me through, in hopes of helping someone else. If I didn’t do that I would feel like Satan had defeated me. But have no fear, come Jan. 1, 2012, the post-a-day challenge is over and I will be skipping days when I have nothing to write! 😉 Peace, Linda

  3. Thanks! I like the Luther quote a lot & strive to actually do what he says when I preach! Sometimes in our church, we do conversation sermons, in which the people work alongside the “preacher” to share how the gospel connects to this issues in their lives and in the news. It’s always amazing and powerful. Dietrich Bonhoeffer (another great German theologian!) said that Christ shows up in the space where the Word as written in scripture, the preacher, and the congregation meet. I like to imagine Christ standing right there in the middle of that holy triangle, when preaching! Peace to you, Amy
