“The only true way to live in this world, constituted just as we are, is to make all our employments serve the one great end and aim of our existence, namely, to glorify God and to enjoy him forever.”
Elizabeth Prentiss, Stepping Heavenward
Quick, before I get Sidetrack'd
To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury; and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable; and wealthy, not rich; to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly; to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart; to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasion, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious grow up through the common. This is to be my symphony.William Ellery Channing
I came across this quote the other day at my IRL friend Leah’s blog. It pretty well sums up many of my thoughts on simplicity, stopping to recognize God, and living intentionally.
Have a great weekend everyone!
Last night’s episode of The Office was great! The writers were in rare form when they wrote this script. I laughed all the way through the episode, from Andy coming in and saying he goes by Drew now to the “shunning” by Dwight to the bets (Kelly’s explanation of Netflix was great) to Michael on the roof. There were several good quotes, but the one I remember right now is:
“I worked in a warehouse once. Men’s Warehouse. I was a greeter.” ~~ Michael Scott
