Monday Inspiration: October 19, 2015

By: Gabriela Yareliz

It’s time for another week. It will bring its ups, downs and standstills.

Sometimes, time seems to go fast and slow and then disappear altogether. It’s cold here now; winter coats, heater drying contact lenses and ear pain. Ahhh… A taste of winter for the soul. This weekend, I had a lovely visit from a good friend, and it was nice to drink a steaming hot chocolate on the cold, windy ferry. Winter.

The cold allows us to appreciate warmth. I have a feeling the cold is here to stay, and soon our leggings and tights will be a permanent fixture in our wardrobes. A second skin, if you will.

I hope you accomplish all of your heart’s desires for this week. Stay warm.

Let’s rock.

“In the long run, the sharpest weapon of all is a kind and gentle spirit.”

Anne Frank, The Diary of Anne Frank 

“I like it when somebody gets excited about something. It’s nice.”

J.D. Salinger // The Catcher in the Rye

“I enjoy the simple things, talking deeply for hours, going on random adventures, looking at the stars, dancing to the music, living my life.”


“You don’t find peace until you love somebody else.”

Ben Rector in his song “Note to Self”

Who God has called you to be is the you that you’ve been wanting to be all along.”


“To love means loving the unlovable. To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable. Faith means believing the unbelievable. Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless.”

G.K. Chesterton
