Thursday Pearls


"Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work."

 ~ Thomas A. Edison

"For thou shalt eat the fruit of thine hands: happy shall thou be, and it shall be well with thee."

~ Psalm 128:2

Thursday blessings, dearest friends...and a happy first of October!
{And thank you all for your very kind, encouraging words about my exciting new business venture!}


~ The Lord shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven to give rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand:  and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow.  Deuteronomy 28:12 ~

Oh, Kelly-Anne, this is a wonderful quote, and it's so true! My grandfather actually worked with Thomas Edison (at the end of Edison's life), and it was quite enlightening. He always tried and saw failures as something that didn't work and would continue to find what did work. I pray that you will enjoy the fruit of your hands' work. Hugs!
