Success Sunday

Success Sunday Banner

"Pray that success will not come any faster than you are able to endure it."
--Elbert Hubbard

This is a nice reminder that wishful thinking isn't always what is best for us and that God's timing is always ON TIME. Kinda goes back to this post and this post. It makes me mad sometimes that he isn't on my timetable, but when I step back from the situation and try to find that silver lining, I typically end up telling myself that I have to grow somehow in order for me to get there. That's when I pray, "Hurry up and tell me what I'm suppose to learn from this so I can grow already!" Yeah, that doesn't always work either...

I've updated the code there to include a backlink in a "footer" so you don't have to worry about that, however I still appreciate a comment on the current post (ie. this one) so I know to go visit your site when it is up! Thanks..

I think this is so true! And I love the idea of posting something like this on Sunday to start out the week on the right foot. I didn't create the backlink right, but my quote is on my blog at Thanks, Jen!

OK I've got my quote up. Not much beyond that - but it's a start! Sundays are generally not my most thoughtful day :o)
