Quote of the Day ~ Number One

IMG_20141208_125941[1]

Hello, dear friends! I hope you are all doing well and enjoying the week!

I was recently nominated by my beautiful friend, Sadie, at Sadie’s Nest for the three day quote challenge. I thought this sounded like a lot of fun, so I eagerly accepted.

I want to thank Sadie not only for nominating me, but for being the wonderful friend that she is. She brings such love and inspiration to her lovely blog!

The quote I chose for Day One comes from Corrie Ten Boom, author of The Hiding Place. Her book is incredible, and I highly recommend it.

Excerpt from Wikipedia: Cornelia “Corrie” ten Boom (15 April 1892 – 15 April 1983) was a Dutch Christian who, along with her father and other family members, helped many Jews escape the Nazi Holocaust during World War II. She was imprisoned for her actions. Her most famous book, The Hiding Place, describes the ordeal.

Rules for the challenge:

Thank the blogger that nominated you.
Share one new quote on three consecutive days on your blog. They can be from anywhere, anyone, or anything.
On each of the three days, nominate three more bloggers to carry on with the fun! No   pressure; nominees are free to decline.

My first day Quote Challenges are to the following:

B at Folkbird

Bethani at Bethani Bakes

Claire at Paintbox Mum

  1. Beautiful quote Anna. I visited her house in Holland and saw the faux wall that they hid behind. There were 6 people in such a small space for so long! And I love how she kept seeing God’s goodness through all of the darkness.

    1. Oh Sadie! That is wonderful that you had the opportunity to visit her home! What an incredible experience that must have been! I love her writings — yes, it’s beautiful to see how she saw God’s goodness amidst her circumstances! Do you remember the story of the fleas? How they kept the guards away? What an incredible outlook — makes me want to read her books again! 🙂

      1. I love to read as well, but lately have been too busy to sit down with a book. 🙂 The Corrie Ten Boom books are so inspiring. Hugs to you as well, dear friend! xo
