Words for my Wednesday

Earth Day was on Monday, and I'm still on the nature theme, so I hope you find today's words inspiring.

The beauty of trees always amazes me.  

"He that plants trees loves others beside himself."
~ Thomas Fuller

 More shots of trees around my neighborhood.

And because I know that it snowed on Earth Day in other parts of the U.S., I'm including a snowy tree.  Beautiful, isn't it?

This next quote is from Miss Val's Creations, from last week's comments.  I love it (and sometimes I need to remind myself of this quote).

"Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather."
~ John Ruskin

Happy Wednesday!  If you have a quote, saying, or words you would like to share, please do with a comment.  =0)  Thank you for reading.  Have a great day.

Gorgeous photos of the trees! I had found this quote for Earth Day by Chief Seattle: “The earth does not belong to us. We belong to the earth.”

Lovely photos! I have been reading Rumi for school, so here is part of one of his poems:

"...Good and evil, dead and alive, everything blooms from one natural stem..."

Glad you stopped by. Sorry you havent been able to view it til now. Had to do some changes due to cyber bullying and cyber stalking going on about 4 or 5 mths.

but here's some quotes that I love and I also shared them on my blog a while bk

you aren't going to be his first, his last, or his only. he cared about someone else before and he will again. but if he cares about you no one else matters? he's not perfect-you aren't either; and the 2 of you will never be perfect. but if he can make you laugh at least once, hold on to him and give him the most you can. he is not going to quote poetry; he is not goin to be thinking about you every moment. but he will give you a part of him that he knows you can break, so don't hurt him, don't change him, and don't expect more than he can give you, don't analyze. smile when he makes you happy-yell when he makes you mad-and miss him when he's not there~Angelina Jolie

"i've built a wall not to block anyone out, but to see who loves me enough to climb over it."

"i believe that everything happens for a reason. people change so that you can learn to let go. things go wrong so that you can appreciate them when they're right. you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together."

"when life knocks you down to your knees, just remember that you are in the perfect positon to pray."

"life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets. so love the people who treat you right, forget about the ones who don't, and believe that everything happens for a reason. if you get a chance, take it. if it changes your life, let it. nobody said it'd be easy. they just promised it'd be worth it."

“Relationships-of all kinds-are like sand held in your hand. Held loosely, with an open hand, the sand remains where it is. The minute you close your hand and squeeze tightly to hold on, the sand trickles through your fingers. You may hold onto some of it, but most will be spilled. A relationship is like that. Held loosely, with respect and freedom for the other person, it is likely to remain intact. But hold too tightly, too possessively, and the relationship slips away and is lost.”

"i've made mistakes in my life. i've let people take advantage of me, and i accepted way less than i deserve. but, i've learned from my bad choices and even though there are some things i can never get back and people who will never be sorry, i'll know better next time and i won't settle for anything less than i deserve."

“Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back when you hang up on him, who will lie under the stars and listen to your heartbeat, or will stay awake just to watch you sleep... wait for the boy who kisses your forehead, who wants to show you off to the world when you are in sweats, who holds your hand in front of his friends, who thinks you're just as pretty without makeup on. One who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares and how lucky his is to have you.... The one who turns to his friends and says, 'that's her.'”

Eventually all the pieces fall into place….until then, laugh at the confusion, live for the moment, and know that everything happens for a reason”~Carrie Bradshaw

...I'm still waiting for this to happen.

As Steve Harvey said today, God didnt make your soul mate and not intend on you to meet them.
