Letters from a Hill Farm
Such a fascinating quote. I've been made more aware of G.K. Chesterton through Renovare's list of 25 Books Every Christian Should Read. I hope to work through them, probably starting at Lent, in 2012. Well, not all of them, but to get a start anyway. I'm never disappointed in the books which express the foundation of Christianity.
Quite true.Contentment is worth fighting for.
More true words - I do try to get the best out of situations but don't always succeed I'm afraid.
What a wonderful thought for a Monday and a start to a new week. I think it should be something reflected on each day as so many are no longer content in this world. I am content watching the birds out in the snow eating the bread crumbs I have set out for them. :-)Hugs from Holland ~Heidi
Ah, Chesterton. What a happy human he was. I have admired him since I read "The Man Who was Thursday" and the "Father Brown Mysteries". I am in the midst of weeding out my too many books, but these two I will never weed out.
I agree. But then, I love quoting Chesterton :-)
Bellezza, there's more here:http://www.chesterton.org/wordpress/Pamela, I think he expressed is so well. We often think of contentment as a passive thing, not an active one.Rowan, there must be a quote about the worthiness of simply trying!Heidi, you are a model for this quote.Betsy, I haven't read any of his work, except for one Father Brown a long time ago. I need to remedy that. Deniz, yeah, he's like Churchill that way!
One of my favourite quotes and a great reminder. Thank you, Nan!
They are great words to ponder, Colleen.
Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
