Thursday Pearls

"Let us, then, be up and doing,
With a heart for any fate;
Still achieving, still pursuing,
Learn to labor and to wait."
~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
 "God has made us what we are.  He has created us in Christ Jesus to live lives filled with good works that he has prepared for us to do."

~ Ephesians 2:10
Blessings on your Thursday, dearest friends!

I really like this quote Kelly-Anne. It's motivational but also reminds us that waiting is sometimes the right thing to do! Thanks for sharing!

An invigorating verse - we put the work in and wait upon the Lord to shape the outcome according to His will.
Blessings to you!

Oh, sweet Kelly-Anne, such a sweet painting, and I just love these young girls and the geese/ducks. I especially love the one with the wings. And what a precious quote from Longfellow...may we continue to labor and press on. Yes, God has created us to work, and we will work in heaven one day under the best conditions ever! Hugs, precious friend, and have a joyous weekend and glorious Lord's Day!
