Humility

I started a new Thursday night Bible study last week....last night we discussed humility. I took a lot of notes and there is much to think about.

"If anyone would like to acquire humility I can, I think, tell him the first step.
The first step is to realize that one is proud. If you think you're not conceited, it means you are very conceited indeed."

C.S. Lewis

Hi Marie!

Thank you, lovin' this thought provoking quote.

I strolled back in time through your lovely blog and WOW! So many wonderful places to stop and visit while on said stroll and then I came to the photo from your back door! My first thought when I saw that photo...HOW DOES ONE GET OUT?

Thank you for sharing!

God has a way of allowing us to eat humble pie often, if we choose.
Love to you...The Enchanted Yard Sale is going on...don't miss it! Humble pie free for the taking!

Oh, I love anything written by C.S. Lewis.
I enjoyed all your charming photos from around the house in the post below. The way you stacked the rolling pins was SO cute!!
And of course I loved the pics of your three sweet peas further down.
Have a blessed Sunday, Marie.
