Quotables: Flannery O'Connor


At its best our age is an age of searchers and discoverers, and at its worst, an age that has domesticated despair and learned to live with it happily.
-- Flannery O’Connor, “Novelist and Believer”

Sunday Thoughts: St. Therese of Lisieux

There is in the Community a Sister who has the faculty of displeasing me and everything, and her ways, her words, her character, everything seems very disagreeable to me. And still, she is a holy religious who must be very pleasing to God. Not wishing to give into the natural antipathy I was experiencing I told myself that charity does not consist in feelings but in works; then I set myself to doing for this Sister what I would do for the person I loved the most.
– St. Therese, Story of a Soul

Friday Before Memorial Day Trivia

Did you know today is the most popular day of the year to close on a house?

I know this because I've been temping at a title company and today was a zoo and a half.  (And all week, everyone was saying: "Just wait until Friday.")

Happy Memorial Day Weekend, everyone!

Eggshell Mosaic Tutorial - part 2 - by Eggshelllady - #Eggshell #Mosaic #Crafts - pb†å
I haven't tried this, but I think it would be fun.  Although I suppose I'd have to collect egg shells for six months first!

Today I'm Grateful For...

Friends.

And their cute kids.

(Ann S. also has a cute kid.  She just never seems to bring him when I have a camera in hand.  Maybe we'll have to plans something....)
