Unexpected Days

Today I was thinking about my day yesterday. It had been one of those rushed and stressful days-I am sure we all encounter these days from time to time.I had already known that this week for me would be action packed but....

it always seems as if more gets added and more complications and setbacks arrive!!The day then changes
shape and is full of unexpected challenges to deal with. Yesterday was not the quiet and peaceful day I had planned!!

Today I thought that I would share some favourite quotes. Some of you will already know that I have a huge collection of quotes. I find these quotes inspiring and uplifting and much wisdom can be found in them. I hope you will enjoy reading these and that in some little way they will inspire you too.

"A true friend is someone who reaches for your hand but touches your heart"

"Is prayer your steering wheel or spare tire?"

"Rich is the person who has a praying friend"

"Don't pray when it rains if you do not pray when the sun shines"

"When one door of happiness closes another opens,but often we look  so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us"
