Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Sunday Sayings


"Man can not discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore."  Andre Gide

So true...and so scary to do it, isn't it?! That's what faith is for, though...

Wishing you a beautiful Sunday, my friend!

That saying is very true. I try to remember that you have to go on faith sometimes! I also wanted to tell you that the colors in those flowers are so beautiful, makes me want to sit down and paint or make a quilt with those colors!

Wow. Talk about needing to have strong faith.

I love your words, Mimi. And by the way, I threw a bridal shower for a wonderful woman yesterday. She's had a hard life and over the past three years has turned it around completely, relying heavily on the Lord, and is now marrying a man in the temple. A wonderful day! I gave her a Christus statue I bought from Stewart's and she wept. And I thank you because you were my cashier that day. :)

I am a true shore holder onerous for sure! But oh goodness, am I ready for new oceans!
Enjoy
