Miracles, soaking it in and the Hot Light

Two quotations caught my eye this week and are the first two things.  

"There are two ways to live:  you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle."
― Albert Einstein

“I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don't notice it.”
― Alice Walker, The Color Purple

- Another of life's wonders - the Hot Light was on at Krispy Kreme Doughnuts when I stopped to get some for the crew at work.  I might have had one of those hot doughnuts myself.  :)  Yum.

I hope you weekend is filled with miracles, beauty and wonders.  Have a great one!

Albert was a very smart man:)

It is rare to seen any purple in our field. We do have Irises but they are gone now. Sometimes tiny wildflowers will pop up in purple. I hope I never fail to notice them.

You know how to win the troops. We always loved anyone who brought donuts to work, and no, I wasn't a policeman! LOL

Both quotes remind me of the goodness and greatness of our God. btw, I've heard if you eat a KK donut while it's hot it has no calories. :) have a wonderful weekend.

Claudia Moser said...

Happy weekend for you too!

Joanne said...

I LOVE both of those quotes! Such great words to live by.

Lisa said...

What a happy post! I loves both of those quotes!

Shyamanga said...

Lovely quotes. The pictures add more color to them. Einstein's quote made me remember bluesman Willie Dixon's words: "I life the life I love and I love the life I live."

Granny Annie -

He WAS smart! And I think you would notice the purple flowers - you're like that.

Morale was bad this week for some reason - donuts seem to make everything better.

happygirl -

Absolutely. And I like that Krispy Kreme rule. :)

Claudia -

Same to you, Claudia!

Joanne -

Thank you - that's what I aim for.

And I would love some of that chocolate tart you posted about today. Yum.

Lisa -

Thank you, Lisa!

Shyamanga -

Hey - it's good to see you here again. That's a great quote from Willie Dixon, too.

Shionge said...

I wish the same for you my dear friend and yes...we must stop to smell the roses/flowers :D

My mom loved the warm Krispy Kreme Donuts.

I am going to believe EVERYTHING is a miracle.

Did I tell you I love your new blog look - just love it. sandie

Riot Kitty said...

Believe it or not, I have never read that Alice Walker quote! Nice!

Sparkling Red said...

I never knew that Einstein said that! So true. Everything is a miracle, for sure.

Lynn said...

Shionge -


Sandie -

I'm so glad you like it - we tweaked it a bit yesterday. A little more red.

Riot Kitty -

That was spoken by the character in the book Shug Avery. I ran across it yesterday in conjunction with a book I am reading, "An Altar in the World" by Barbara Brown Taylor.

Sparkling Red -

It's kind of looking at life with a cup half full. :)

Nice photos and quotes and that hot sign at Krispy Kreme can lure the dieting out of me!

I was here early Fri am, but the chrome browser wouldn't open the comment page!
I always like Einstien's quotes- I suspose life itself is the ultimate miracle.
I do love my purple flowers! Why do I not remember that line from the Oprah Movie years ago?
I've never had a Krispy Kreme yet- you are so lucky. We get spoiled for fresh goodies at work too- so much better. The croissants just melt in your mouth, prob like a warm Krispy Kreme huh?

Hope your week-end is going well

Lynn said...

Sage -

Thank you - and I'm with ya on the dieting thing.

Snaggle -

I'll bet you do have some good things to eat where you work. A hot croissant isn't something I ever see! Yum.

Betty Manousos said...

Betty Manousos said...

p.s. i always appreciate your wonderful comments on my blog, they mean the absolute world!

Lynn said...

Betty -

Thank you and I always enjoy your visits and nice comments. Big hugs to you!

LL Cool Joe said...

That second quote is so true. There is something truly magical about the colour purple and yet I don't often see it, or wear for that matter.

I've never had a KK Donut, and feel I'm really missing out!!

Lynn said...

Joe -

There's a Krispy Kreme store in Mesa, Arizona - maybe that's close to your house there?

I love the color purple and am wearing it today. :)

TALON said...

I find it hard to ignore any colours when out walking so I think I'm good with God ;)

There are wild asters blooming all over the place and their pretty purple is such a welcome sight. They're keeping company with the abundance of wild daisies this year. They seem to thrive even more in the heat.
