" #PleaseStealThese "  -- Lucki
Some really nice ones there. THANK YOU for keeping me on the mailing list. -- Kim Bowden-Kerby

This year's quotes alternate between the rooms of recovery and the words of various people quoted in Twigs of a Family Tree [What?] and The Three Onenesses [What?]. Plus the usual baker's dozen for Baha'i events, focusing on Baha'u'llah's Words of Wisdom and with a nod to the 12 Steps. Feel free to copy/paste any images anywhere. Your social media, emails, a card, poster, T-shirt, whatever. But just for your personal use, not $-making. Please don't crop credit lines. Do use hashtags.Feel free to email me to request a high-reolution copy of any image(s) on this page. And enjoy!

  2021-10-08 Seek & Find
#Seeking   #Finding

If we're seeking a virtue, when we start using it, we start finding it. #Seeking #Finding #Recovery
2021-10-01 Will Or Can
#Omniscience   #God
We say God is omniscient. But how is that really defined? To know all that WILL happen? Or to know all that CAN happen? #Omniscience #God #TwigsOfAFamilyTree

2021-09-24 The Vortex
#Alcohol   #PeoplesLives

I roared through people's lives like a tornado. When you throw alcohol into the vortex, it becaomes the vortex. #Alcohol #PeoplesLives #Recovery

2021-09-17 Unexpected
#Faith   #Miracle

...something outside the purview of science...if it really makes an unexpected change for the better in a person who has or finds faith, how does that not qualify as a miracle of its own? #Faith #Miracle #TwigsOfAFamilyTree

2021-09-10 Nine Eleven
#NineEleven   #Remember
Today is...the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. The memorial park at Ground Zero has been opened. The bedrock museum has been roofed. The two tridents have been upraised. The survivor tree has come home. The footprint waterfalls are running. The mourners have gathered, the silences have been observed, the Presidents have spoken, the bells have been rung, the songs sung, the names read, the tears shed, the flags arrayed, the flowers laid, the rubbings made, and "Taps" played.

2021-08-20 Not Static   #GodsPlan   #Evolving
Whatever God's plan is, it is not static. It's not like He set the wheels in motion back when, and how He just watches it roll out. #GodsPlan #Evolving #TwigsOfAFamilyTree
x
2021-08-13 Re-Move
#Subtract   #Add
"Remove" doesn't necessarily mean "take away" ... to remove a shortcoming, maybe I have to add something ... or patiently let something grow. #Subtract #Add #Recovery
x
2021-08-06 See & Plan
#Omniscience   #God

If God's omniscience allows Him to see all the possible consequences, and thus to plan for every contingency, then no matter what we choose or what happens around and to and in us, He can change His plan as needed. And forge ahead. #Omniscience #God #TwigsOfAFamilyTree
x
2021-07-30 Without Dark
#Darkness   #Light
...God's greatest gift to us is Free Will. Without it there is no progress, no salvation, no virtue, no happiness. Without darkness, light is meaningless. #Darkness #Light #AlanProsser

2021-07-23 Or Supportive

#Vice   #Virtue
...when you think about it, virtues and vices actually are the same thing. It's how you use them and what the results are that makes the difference. #Vice #Virtue #TwigsOfAFamilyTree

2021-05-28 Or Sharing
#Vice  #Virtue
Sharing one's knowledge and perceptions with others is virtuous. Insisting that one's own ideas and plans are always right, and best for others, is rank arrogance. #Vice #Virtue #TwigsOfAFamilyTree

2021-05-28 To Hold

2021-04-30 Own The Issue

#Oppressor   #Beneficiary
Yes, the oppressed and powerless must raise their voices and stand up for their rights. But then it's the oppressors and empowered -- and especially all the silent beneficiaries in the wider community -- who must own the issue. Own the situation the oppressors triggered. #Oppressor #Beneficiary #TwigsOfAFamilyTree
x
For Ninth of Ridvan & Step 5
2021-04-28 To Witness

The essence of detachment is for man to turn his face towards the courts of the Lord, to enter His Presence, behold His Countenance, and stand as witness before Him. #Bahai #Detachment #bahaullah #WordsOfWisdom

2021-04-09 Come Up Short

2021-03-05 For Less

#Faith   #Hope   #Love
If we don't strive to care more, we'll care less 'til we become careless of others and outselves. If we can't learn to love more, we'll love less 'til we're loveless. If we neglect to deepen in our faith, we'll have less faith 'til we become faithless. If we don't bother to hope for more, especially for others, we'll hope for less 'til we're hopeless. #Faith #Hope #Love #TwigsOfAFamilyTree
