In Acceptance Lies Peace

“Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance, and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something, and that this thing, at whatever cost, must be attained.”

-Marie Curie (1867-1934)


I have this quote on a 3×5 card in my medicine cabinet in our bathroom. I often read it while brushing my teeth, especially on those days in which I face known challenges in my schedule. Natalie (my sister) sent me a little booklet with inspirational quotes during a particularly low time in my life. I am so strengthened by scripture, by reading about other’s life experiences, and by quotes such as this one. I hope that in sharing these favorite quotes and scriptures, others will be uplifted and faith will be strengthened.

“Now may the LORD of peace Himself

give you peace

at all times and in every way.

The LORD be with all of you.”
