Golden Apples


apples of gold framed2

I often post signs from writers who have encouraged and guided me in my walk with God.  Some means of inspiration, however, have come from people who have never written a book.

These people have left memorable comments in some  off-the-beaten-track setting. Some have passed on and others may have forgotten the words they spoke, but I have treasured these “aptly spoken words” for 10, 20, even 60 years.

Some people’s hearts are better than their theology. Leslie Wilcox

Things may be black and white for me but I have to allow for gray in other people’s lives. A missionary in Haiti

Some trials in life knock the fluff right off your faith. Cheri Santiago

 God doesn’t tease. Lena Price

I know more than I understand. Daniel Frost

I don’t pray that God will lighten the burden but that he will broaden and strengthen my shoulders. Spoken by Marie Ditto in a prayer meeting when I was a small child.

How good is a timely word. …
A word aptly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver.
Proverbs 15:23: 25:11
