I really liked the calming quality of reader Tamsen's quote of Julian of Norwich--so it is the quote of the week this time.
Who was Julian of Norwich? She was an English Christian mystic who spoke of God's love and stressed compassion and joy more than any idea of law and duty (according to this Wikipedia article...)
What is the Julian of Norwich quote shared by Tamsen? Here it is:
All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well.
Isn't that soothing and comforting? I feel reassured by it, although I don't subscribe to almost all of Julian's beliefs. Still, wisdom comes from wherever it comes from. I can take what works and leave the rest.
Here's a song about Julian of Norwich.
Thanks for the beautiful words Tamsen.
Susie had a funny one that I want to share here too. Susie said to live your life so that when your feet hit the floor in the morning Satan says, "Oh shit...she's awake!"
There were other ideas too, but these stand out for me. Thanks for sharing you guys!
