I just jotted this simple cinquain this morning (along with 8 other short poems!). It was inspired by two photo challenges, FFFC #200 and this one at MLMM. It also might count for one-liner Wednesday because it is one sentence with line breaks.
And canyon walls,
There is the sky above
Maybe even a bright light from
For One-Liner Wednesday, I can’t resist sharing another quotation from the great Archbishop Fulton Sheen with you! This is probably my favorite quote from him, and that’s saying a lot.
But when finally the scrolls of history are complete, down to the last word of time, the saddest line of all will be: “There was no room in the inn.” The inn was the gathering place of public opinion, the focal point of the world’s moods, the rendezvous of the worldly, the rallying place of the popular and the successful. But there’s no room in the place where the world gathers. The stable is a place for outcasts, the ignored and the forgotten.
— from the book The Wisdom of Fulton Sheen, emphasis added
For this week’s One-Liner Wednesday, I have this quotation from the great Archbishop Fulton Sheen, found in my book of his quotations.
In every friendship hearts grow and entwine themselves together, so that the two hearts seem to make only one heart with only a common thought. That is why separation is so painful; it is not so much two hearts separating, but one being torn asunder.
I think this is applicable to any true, deep friendship and does not have to be a romantic relationship.
“Life’s greatest privilege is being able to help someone in need.”
— fortune-cookie fortune that I found on the floor
Often, I have been that “someone in need.” In fact, I am more often the help-ee than the help-er. I do agree with this fotune-cookie wisdom and, by the way, pray that God rewards all who have helped me. ❤
For One-Liner Wednesday, I have another “Midweek Meme.” For whatever reason, I found this hilarious and cute!
Sometimes I feel like that little kitten when I have to fight against depressive thoughts and feelings. I’m the little kitten, and the depression and related difficulties are like a full-grown lion.
I am glad to be able to inform you (all 10 or 15 of you 🙂 ) that I made some necessary appointments today that I’ve had to do for months but haven’t seen the point until now. It is a small step but still something I am sort of proud of, something to “celebrate,” even if everyone else would expect more.
