Sunday - Quotes to Ponder #3 - Be Kinder than necessary.....







Happy Sunday Morning 
Sweet Friends,

Hope this day finds you well and happy
and 
that it will be a quiet restful day for you.

I was reminded of this quote this week
due to a comment someone left on my
blog.......and I think it is a quite good one
 as well.  You may have read it before too,
 but it bears repeating especially at this
 time of the year, when everyone seems
 to be in such a rush, and hopefully we 
will carry it with us through the
 New year and beyond...............



"Be Kinder than necessary, for every-
one you meet is fighting a hard battle."
(or at least some type of battle even if it is from within -
 that part is from me)  lol


I was trying to find the author of the
 quote and below are my findings.


It’s a great quote, but it’s unclear who
 said it. It actually seems to be an
 amalgamation of two separate quotations.
 Author James M. Barrie, of Peter Pan 
fame, said “Be kinder than necessary.”
 But his advice stops there. Plato is 
quoted as saying “Be kind, for everyone
 you meet is fighting a hard battle.”
Whoever pushed these two together
 actually created a more thoughtful and 
salient point. It’s worth remembering
 the next time you find yourself about
 to be ungracious with someone.

Note to self......
We can all act out in our problems, 
pain and stress at times.....and when
we do we want someone to give us
Grace.........We sometimes need to
remember to give others grace when
they are acting out in their problems,
pain and stress...............


Happy Pondering!!


Love, Hugs and Blessings,

"Growing more to be like Christ" is the result of remembering those with kind words, prayers for their needs, and sharing the love of our LORD Jesus with them. I've found in the last few years that no matter what my situation, I am thankful. There are so many others that are in worse conditions of this fallen world than I am. All the more your words are true about us not acting out when there are so many who would gladly "trade places and situations" with us who are in more need than ourselves. Thank you for this "pondering" thought. I love you all, Susan
HI Susan,
Thanks for coming by and for your comments..........
Even when growing in Christ we all have temptations to deal with, we are forgiven, but not
yet perfect.........lol Sometimes wish we were tho!! lol

Merry Christmas,
Love, Nellie

I adopted that advice when I was 21 and right out of college. I was working in a doctor's office and some of the patients (many had cancer) were not very nice. But, I reminded myself that they were hurting and went out of my way to be kind to everyone. It has served me well.
Morning Carol,
Wow, you had a tough job right out of college. Yea, think people are typically at their worst when they are feeling bad or overtired.......
I agree it does serve us well anytime we are kind, but I think when people are hurting they
so appreciate the kindness more than they or we will ever know.
Appreciate the comments and your visit.

HOpe you have a Merry Christmas.
Blessings, Nellie

Happy Sunday Morning to You Sweet Friends, And Happy Spring!! She has finally officially arrived. I decided to try a new meme today,  it is called  "Shadow Shot Sunday". I am going to combine it with my Sunday verse   for  the day  which I haven't done for  awhile.  Thought it would  work great  together. I am linking up to the "Hey Harriet blog" So.....if you want to check out all the other shadow shots,   just click here. The header photo is of my bathroom  window,  very early  in the morning,  just as day is breaking. You will see the sun coming up more and more. I only wish the camera could have captured the way the light was dancing on the window pane, truly a beauty to behold! I took these at different stages as you can probably tell from the amount of light coming in the window, and now onto the valance. It was truly fun and fascinating to watch! Remember.......................... He who dwells in the shelter of th

Psalm 148:3 NIV   Greetings Sweet Friends, Hope you week has been a good one. Mine has been good in spite of the fact the antibiotics they gave me didn't work.  They seemed to be working the first few days but then it seemed like my symptoms were coming back,  so now I am on a new antibiotic for another week.  Ugh!!  Hopefully this  will  do the trick...........Nope! I had to quite taking it as  I  was  having bad side affects.  So not  taking anything now  and hoping  that I got enough  in me to take  care of the  problem............So far, so good,  but it has only been 2 days off............. Pictures today are from our house this Fall 2020. So on with my Thankfuls...... #1 Thankful for a nice time with our  Son  and Lil darling,  He was sweet to bring dinner for all of us, and then we played some wii and a card game.  A Fun Surprise..... especially
