friday's quotes of the week

"Many happy returns on the day of thy birth, may joy and gladness be given.
And may the Dear Father prepare thee on earth, for a beautiful birthday in heaven."

Mom to Mollie on this her birthday....thanks for making me a mom and being the delight of my life!


“Explain this to me. Why would anyone peel a banana, discard the peel, and wrap it in a napkin so her hands won’t get messy? I mean, does that make any sense at all?”

Samuel Johnson


"Any attempt to define church membership by anything other than allegiance to Jesus Christ is, quite simply, idolatrous."

N.T. Wright



"A universal peace, it is to be feared, is in the catalogue of events, which will never exist but in the imaginations of visionary philosophers, or in the breasts of benevolent enthusiasts."

James Madison


“The point that I wish to make is that modesty in clothing is not just about skin, shape, and shifting (as one contributor cleverly alliterated), but it is about the whole Christian and his or her representative responsibilities as ambassadors.”

Karen,

I just wanted to say how much I enjoy your Friday quotes of the week. As much as we can enjoy a "famous" quote of depth from a household name, it's also great to hear funny conversation from a name in your household.

Hi David,

I am glad you are enjoying our quotes...you should hear the ones that never make it into print for the sake of protecting the guilty!
