Please forgive me but this is how we learn more...........can you explain this one to me?

Lisa Loo said...

I don't think you need forgiveness at all. It is all about learning in my opinion. This is an illustration by Mary Engelbreit and she is always doing fun things with words and pictures. She has one entitled--Life is just a chair of bowlies---etc.
Anyways--I have always taken this to mean the miracle of Christ's life and death and all that He did for us. It is a magnet I have had for years that I found at Christmas time--so I guess that is part of why I have always thought that. In my life it has seemed particularly pertinent (I KNOW the spelling is way off on those last 2 words--sorry) also as the miracle we just experienced with my Kelly and her surgery. What do you think of that idea?? Does it ring true for you or am I up in the night??

This is a beautiful reminder for me to not waste the blessings in my life including the opportunity to be here. And of course, like you said Christ's life and death--- not to squander that through indifference and/or disobedience.

I'm glad you posted.

Love this picture! I am a huge Mary Engelbreit fan! My kitchen and dining room is filled with her art.

I agree, we see and witness many miarcles, do we record them? DO we retain that memory? Do we credit God....

Love this. A great reminder.

I love this and had not seen in before. Thanks! (Hope things are looking up for you and your fam...)

Well this is timely for me. I just got done snapping at my 8 year old daughter for making a mess on the kitchen table with her art stuff. She is a miracle. She is supposed to have Cerebral Palsy because of the circumstances of her birth but, instead, we got a miracle. A miracle who is capable of making art messes on the kitchen table.

I need to find more patience

Wow! Mary E. (can't remember how to spell her last name) always nails it doesn't she???

Carla said...

I also wanted to say, I love your Gordan B. Hinckley quote. I passed it on:)

I love this thought. Check my blog and let me know what you think of me going private. Would you like to be on my list if I do?

Redhoodoos said...

Love the picture, my friend.

Well said, my kindred spirit. I have so many miracles in my life. The greatest being the knowledge of my Savior. How I don't want to waste the miracle of His atonement. What a great thought to start the season.

(((hugs)))

This is perfect. I love it Lisa.

Adventure girl wanna be said...

Oh! Thanks. Is everything OK? Haven't seen you in a while!

Just checking in to see how life is treating you. I'm thinking about cancelling cable today. I definitely have to keep my internet. My husband doesn't want to bz it's basketball season and the Jazz are playing. The problem is, then it will be the superbowl, then baseball, then golf, then football, then back to basketball. SIGH. If only women ruled the cable companies life would be so much nicer and less expensive! Have a happy day Lisa.

Redhoodoos said...

Miss you.

Let me know if you didn't get the email I sent this morning about the gift exchange.

Marivic_Little GrumpyAngel said...

Hi, Friend. Just checking to see how you're doing. And also to let you know I will be on blog-cation and will not be able to visit and comment for awhile, in case you have new posts scheduled. I will be back to check on you again when my blog-cation is over. Have a great Thanksgiving holiday!

kitchenditcher said...

Just wanted to let you know that I am thinking about you.

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. And I hope that all is well.

All my love.

imbeingheldhostage said...

ok, where'd you go....
You alright?

onlymehere said...

Hope you have a happy Thanksgiving. I hope everything's okay over there.

Redhoodoos said...

Have a great thanksgiving, my friend!

Carla said...

Thinking of you, and sending you and yours love! Happy Holidays:)

onlymehere said...

Just wanted you to know that I lost the cable debate. Internet jumps up considerably if we drop cable so it really isn't that much more than having internet and cable. I still think we can cut back on cable but I definitely lost that argument. Hope you're okay and enjoyed Thanksgiving. Cindy

Messy Jess said...

Lisa Loo, Where are you?

Happy Thanksgiving. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.

McEwens said...

Hey you... just thinking about you. Are you ok? Is there anything we can do?????

Cynthia said...

I just wanted to check in on you- it's been awhile. I hope you and your family are doing okay. I'm feeling just a little worried but hopefully you've just been busy.
