Beautiful People

“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 compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”     Elizabeth Kübler-Ross

Today I needed to send a test post to check my blog settings and I thought it a perfect opportunity to share one of my favorite quotes.  I hope you enjoy that tidbit.  I don’t have a card to share just yet but I hope the quote made you smile and and hope you have an enchanting day ahead.  I appreciate you so much!!  You are all beautiful people!

    Hi Becca,

    These are the precise words I tell myself each and every day as I deal with each trial that God sends my way, or I attract to myself. When I was a young girl, I asked my Dad one day that why does God allow good people to suffer? His answer was beautiful and something I never forgot. He said, “Just like the beauty of an ingot of gold mined comes out once it has been put through the fire and beaten to take all impurities out, so it is with God. He puts us through the same purification process. With each struggle, each misfortune, we are purified. We burn do that the impurities within our souls are cleansed and we prepare to do His work on earth.” My father died about 2 years after that at a very young age. My husband just passed on 6months ago. There have been numerous tests in this short period. I needed this to remind me that I am being cleansed to do better things for others. Thanks!ReplyCancel

  • ChelseaJune 25, 2013 - 10:16 am

    I’m not surprised to know that this is your favorite quote. You are such a beautiful person yourself! I know the Lord has shaped you into the person He desires you to be, however you have walked that path of struggle and loss and allowed Him to do His work in you. You are not only beautiful, but set an example of a beautiful life.ReplyCancel

  • Sue MJune 25, 2013 - 8:07 pm

    That quote was so beautiful it would make a great card!!!! Love so much your over the top cards. You have such talent Becca, thanks for sharing it with us and telling us how you did it, as if we can do things as beautiful as you. I love your treating us like we can, and being willing to inspire us to try. You truly are a beautiful person. My favorite quote is “Every heart has it’s own sorrow”. It seems few get through this life without some kind of sorrow so we must be kind to everyone for we are all fighting a battle to rise above the pain and let it polish us instead of defeat us. Another great quote from the Bible is “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”.ReplyCancel

    Have a wonderful day and lots of great fun every day in your life.ReplyCancel

    Writing this AFTER reading your tomorrow’s post (6-26-13)…. Yes, for now Reader is still working. I got this post (and tomorrow’s post) both still in Reader…. BUT… I also got them in Bloglovin’, which I’ve been using as well, for a couple months now. Love it!

    Bloglovin’ has an instant upload of followed blogs from Google Reader, too, which I’m so glad I used 2 months ago, because Google Reader keeps dropping blogs I follow and adding back on blogs I stopped following a long time ago! But I had already uploaded to Bloglovin’.

    Just 2 weeks ago, I finally got tired of having all the ‘unfollowed’ blogs back on the list in Reader, so I re-did Google Reader through their manage blog list. When I was done, I had 179 blogs I follow on that list. The next day when I signed in to Reader, they had dropped some again, and my count was down to 162…. so I suggest that if you haven’t made the switch yet, then you’d better print out a list of your blogs and then check it on Feedly or Bloglovin’ after uploading them to make sure everything was uploaded correctly.

    I also see you have a “Follow you on Pinterest” button in your sidebar. Well, you can put both a “Follow you on Bloglovin” and a “Follow you on Feedly” buttons there as well. That way, if someone like me, doesn’t get your email (I get too much as is), they can still follow you through a blog reading service. Just a thought! :)ReplyCancel

  • Mary H.June 26, 2013 - 7:41 pm

    Becca, I do get email notifications when you post, but I don’t think your post of 6/24 came in to me. Then I read your post of 6/26 regarding Google’s changing. I don’t ‘think’ I’ve subscribed in a Google Reader (as I never understood what it really did!). So I think (hope) I’m ok. Would not want to miss any of your lovely & delightful posts & cards. Hugs.ReplyCancel
