This week’s prompt is all about our five favourite quotes. I’m pretty sure that I could do more than five but we’ll start with those.
The first two aren’t exactly quotes but have stuck between me and Hannah (The Little Golden Daffodil). In our final year at university, Chris and I were also planning our wedding around studying and work.
My Mum had been on it from the beginning. Once Chris had proposed to me she had a list of all the things that we might need to consider, the idea being that we wouldn’t have any stress, we’d start well in advance so there was no stress. This became the little catch phrase that even today is still quoted.
Another Hannah one coming up. On a particular occasion we were organising a night out with some of my non-uni friends. I think the question was to do with what to wear and the response was “Just be normal”. It was meant in a “be yourself” kind of way but it sprung this whole “define normal” conversation and ended up in this quote. For years I’d been told how I wasn’t normal and my comeback had become “define normal”.
Actually Hannah has this one on her list too. Not intentional I promise and I did think of changing it but ended up keeping it in the end.
Then two bible bits to finish with. Jeremiah 29v11 is a bit over quoted but it’s till relevant. God has a plan stopped trying to set your plan in solid rock because God will come with a shed load of TNT and blow it all up.
This Psalm verse was one of the first I learnt by heart and still remember now.
