Sunday Post ~

"People are like stained-glass windows.
They sparkle and shine when the sun is out,
but when the darkness sets in,
their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within." -- Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

John 12:35-36

OOOh, oooh, FIRST!!! Hope you're feeling better. I loves me some daffodils. Gotta press "post" now before someone offers you snack cakes to be first.

Well it isn't even Sunday yet here in Arizona, come to think of it not yet in Colorado if I was there which I am not.
I am so stealing that quote . . .
Hope this Sunday finds you feeling better.

Blogger mrtl said...

Where do I know that name? Isn't Kubler-Ross a psychiatrist? hmmmm... interestink!

Happy Sunday!

Blogger Annejelynn said...

you're a peach! mmwah! Happy Sunday ~

Blogger Squirl said...

The flower is one of my favorites and that quote is so true.

I hope those stupid stones are done making you miserable. :(

Love and hugs!

Blogger Susie said...

eclectic, You think I could be bought, with snack cakes? Never. Well, only a few days a month, maybe ;)

nina, I'm glad you find it theft-worthy. I told Jif I'm coming to visit you in Arizona someday. I just presumed the invitation. Not soon, but some day :)

mrtl, yep, she's a psychiatrist, mostly famous for "death and dying" stuff. Happy Sunday, mrtl :)

annejelynn, thank you, sweetie. I'll take "peach," that's nice.

squirl, I like daffodils, too. So ordinary, but so powerfully symbolic of spring; such power to lift one's mood. And the stones, they are not done :(

Oy vey, I can so tell by this quote
you are in the MH field. I feel like
I am reading something MJ wrote.

See I will tell you something here.
MJ did all sorts of stuff like this
for Sarah when she was sick.

This is the one MJ used the most. Oh it's
sharing time on Susies blog.

The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassions, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.

I like yours a little better, cuz
I am a stained glass freak.

The flowers are beeeeeeeeee-utiful.
(did beeeeeee in case you see one)

You are in some ways just like MJ.
The eternal optimist, full of love
and hope, and all that good stuff.

Now I am setting a place for you
at Seder, Ecectic is coming.

And I have not forgotten I will
forward to you Nikki's letter.
But ya better have a huge box of
tissues ready.

As Deb say's to me and now I will
say to you-I think this is a Sthn
phrase. Bless your heart.

Love Mean Nasty Shoshie
(your sister)

PS. I really like these Sunday posts. Even though I am Jewish,
they are way good, and at the end
of the day it doesn't really matter
that I am Jewish. I believe in God.

Just don't post a picture of a pork
chop. mmmmmkay

Did I see you say those stones aren't gone? Yuckaroo-you want
Sam to post here or be your sounding
board since that WENCH Nikki bailed.

Blogger Nina said...

The invitation is open ended my dear. I still say we need to have a blogger party down here. . . eclectic is willing, Squirl will come, now we just get Bucky.
A long fall weekend, a long winter weekend or even a long Spring weekend. See we would have a blast . . . the summer down here is too hot for most people. I am so excited that you will come visit. I do know it is too early to make the margaritas . . . but I 'm excited. ;) If it is winter we could defrost mrtl and make her come too. Yeah, I do tend to get ahead of myself. :) Hope today finds you feeling better.

Blogger Circus Kelli said...

Happy Sunday, Susie!

A lovely picture, and a lovely thought.

Blogger Susie said...

mean Shoshie, that is one of the most beautiful things I've ever read. And I don't think I'd ever seen it before, so thank you (I did track it down and see that it's from Kubler-Ross, too). And I'm glad you like the stained glass one. I love stained glass, too.
I'm glad eclectic and I are coming for Seder :) We'll be on our best behavior.
"Bless your heart" is absolutely Southern. You can say anything you want to about someone, or to them, as long as you add, "Bless your heart." Or "bless her heart." For example, I could say, "That Shoshie is one mean, nasty girl . . . bless her heart." And you could not take offense. I'm just using that, you know, as a hypothetical ;)
At the end of the day, my sister, it is wonderful, it is perfect, that you are Jewish. That's what I say.
And I have not yet felt inclined to post a picture of a freakin' pork chop, so . . . I think I can hold off on that a bit longer (you're killin' me!).
Yes, I am still a stoner :( Hopefully soon, they'll pass, so they don't have to go rummaging around "in there."
I'm thinking with the holidays coming up . . . maybe the stones will "pass" to celebrate Passover, or they'll "roll away" to celebrate Easter . . . either one would be fine by me. I'm starting to think the damned things aren't at all religious, though . . .
Sam is always welcome, here.
And I will look forward to Nikki's letter, even though I know it will make me cry, because that's just how that WENCH is. I hope she hasn't had to "throttle" any Cambodians, with her little Marie Osmond-looking BADASS self. Bless her heart.

nina, that makes me smile, and I am truly looking forward to it, whatever season it ends up in :)

ck, and a lovely commenter :) Happy Sunday to you, sweetheart.

Light from within? I think I need a new bulb.

Blogger Susie said...

mrB, you made me laugh. I think you shine just fine :)

Blogger Nina said...

Just checking in on you . . . Last Sunday I posted a picture of our stained glass this Sunday you posted a quote about stained glass. I'm thinking spring is in the air.
Hope you are doing okay . . .

Blogger Amy said...

"And all at once
I saw a crowd, a host-
of golden daffodils,
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Shimmering and dancing in the breeze".

Lovely post, Susie. Happy Sunday, Happy Daffodils to you!

Blogger Sometimes Saintly Nick said...

Kubler-Ross knew what she was talking about!

Blogger Karen said...

Today I am posting before reading the bible verse. That's because I love daffodils, and Wordsworth (which someone quoted) and stained glass. So this is a great Sunday post for me already. ;-)

Blogger Circus Kelli said...

Mr B -- let me know where you get your new bulb. I've been a little dim these days as well. :)

Blogger Bucky Four-Eyes said...

I think a few of us could use a bulb replacement.

Wait, why does it sound dirty when I say it?

Feel better, dammit, and evict those stones pronto! It's like they got all up in there are started a colony.

Blogger hellokittn said...

Ok, got a new bulb... now where do I screw this thing in at?

Blogger Circus Kelli said...

Chia, ask Bloggy. I think he knows.

Blogger kerri said...

Purty. I heart Spring!
