My Faith in the Light
"Men seek, often without realizing it, to know what they are and what may arise from the depths of their own being to give meaning and direction to their life" ---Howard H. Brinton
"God can lead us by more ways than one. Some he makes ready before he sends them out, others he sends out so that they may be made ready" ---Mildred Young
Listen, then to the silence. Listen to what they say who say nothing. Open yourself to the silence within, to the Inward Light that shines in every soul." ---Frederick Parker-Rhodes
"Once having the vision, the second step to holy obedience is this: Begin where you are. Obey now. Use what little obedience you are capable of even if it be like a grain of mustard seed." ---Thomas Kelly
The final quote is particularly important to me now as I commence with creating a home school for our son. And while I didn't know of it's existence before starting Knees and Paws, the line "begin where you are" is a thought that gave me the courage to try.
