Favorite Fall Quotes

“Autumn – that season of peculiar and inexhaustible influence on the mind of taste and tenderness, that season which has drawn from every poet, worthy of being read, some attempt at description, or some lines of feeling.”
Jane Austen

“Every leaf speaks bliss to me,
Fluttering from the autumn tree.”
Emily Brontë

“I cannot endure to waste anything so precious as autumnal sunshine by staying in the house. So I have spent almost all the daylight hours in the open air.”
Nathaniel Hawthorne

“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.”
George Eliot

“Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting
and autumn a mosaic of them all.”
Stanley Horowitz

“Autumn burned brightly, a running flame through the mountains,
a torch flung to the trees.”
Faith Baldwin

“Even if something is left undone, everyone must take time to sit still
and watch the leaves turn.”
Elizabeth Lawrence

Mid-Week Pep Talk

If you’ve never been given a pep-talk by the Kid President, you’re in for a treat.

If you’ve heard this before, you’ll enjoy hearing it again. I never get tired of it.

Because you can’t get tired of getting inspired!

Whatever you’re doing today, I hope you know that you can make a difference. No matter what challenges you may be facing, your heart is beating for a reason.

So, lets go out and, in the words of Kid Pres, “Create something that will make the world awesome!”

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

The Dawn of a New Day

A new year, like the pages of a book, lies open before us. 

Each chapter offering new adventures.

Each adventure drawing us further into God’s story,
closer to the Author of our days. 

We owe everything to Him. 

From sunrise to sunset, every second we draw breath is a gift. 

So let’s dedicate our 2013 to finding the inspiring,

praising our Creator for every single moment of grace
we are given along the way.

The failures of the past are past. A new day dawns…

…forgetting those things which are behind,
and reaching forth unto those things which are before…

Philippians 3:13
