When faced with life's challenges,
it is Important to Remember
that although Daniel was saved from the lions,
he was not saved from the Lion's Den.

Sunday Devotional - Service

“Sometimes we get discouraged because the needs in the world around us seem so great and our resources seem so few. We think, “We’re not doing enough. We can’t do enough. Nobody could do enough.” When we think like that, we focus on what is left undone, and we lose the joy that comes with service. 
I want to tell you that we don’t need to compare ourselves to anyone else, either collectively or as individuals…We can do great good when we work as a united sisterhood, as long as we don’t burden ourselves with unrealistic expectations that rob us of the joy of achievement.” Chieko Okazaki,Aloha, pg 21


  1. What a beautiful quote. Thanks for sharing it, Patty Ann!

  2. Nice quote--perfect for today, for me.

  3. Hi, I've tried emailing you in the past from your comments on my blog but it always comes back undeliverable. You asked about the quinoa in my recipes, and we love it! I have several quinoa recipes on my blog if you go to the search and just type in quinoa, you should be able to find them. It does look different but it can replace anything that has rice. Thanks!

  4. I needed this reminder! Blessings, Patty Ann!
