Tagalong Tuesday

Welcome to Tagalong Tuesday, where I search through my writing buddies blogs and find quotes to share with my readers. For the full stories, just click on the links. I hope you enjoy today's selection.

Eros thought of the many girls that swooned before him. Their arms warm. Their lips soft. Their bodies willing. None of them ever measured to the way Angelina felt in his embrace. (Elizabeth Mueller - National Kissing Day)

As we sat quietly in our living room and talked of Christ, the spirit filled our home and hearts, reminding us of the immense love created by a newborn babe in a manger years ago. And as a mother, I am eternally grateful for His life, His example, and His sacrifice--not only for me and my mistakes, but especially for my children's. (Lori Conger - Our Testimony of Christ)

It is never sterile but dirty work that must be prodded with a hot poker and excised with the realization of the pain if it isn't done right. It will infect and fester, laziness growing gangrenous. (David West - Colosus of Ink)

Not that it matters if people see me in a poor light, just…well, you all know. It’s not easy being green. And I’ve never liked the idea of living in a cave. (Nichole Giles - Not the Grinch...)

My bishop didst call me to be Relief Society president. I didst sob in his office. Saith yea, cameth home, and sobbeth some more. (Joyce DiPastena - ...Chronicles 2009)

Life is so generous a giver, but we, judging its gifts by their covering, cast them away as ugly or heavy or hard. Remove the covering, and you will find beneath it a living splendor, woven of love, by wisdom, with power. Welcome it, grasp it, and you touch the Angel’s hand that brings it to you. (Melissa J. Cunningham - Take Joy)

Maybe instead of writing off my elbows altogether I can just have a layer of fat added to them. The same fat that seems to protect the rest of my body from similar pain. In fact, I have a few areas that have collected more than their fair share that could contribute to the cause. (Kasie West - Death to Elbows)

  1. Hi Christine. Thanks for quoting me. Fun idea. I hope you and your family have a wonderful, joyous Christmas.


  2. Christine, thanks for the tagalong. Merry Christmas to you and yours and keep up with your writing.

  3. Thanks for quoting me today, Christine! I'm glad you enjoyed my annual Christmas letter. And you'll be glad to know I hardly ever sob over my Relief Society calling anymore. (I said "hardly ever"...not "never". ;-) )

  4. :) Thanks for the quote Christine. I'm out of town for Christmas and it was fun to see your comment on my blog. I really do love this. It's such a great idea for a post. Like several little teasers. I'll have to check out the other sites.

  5. This is such a fun way to share other people's blogs. Thank you for doing this, Christine.

  6. Wow. You have a lot of talented friends. How beautiful (and funny!) Thanks, Christine.

  7. I like these Christine. Good Job, keep your chin up! I know you'll find an agent and publisher.

    I did notice that my blog is not listed, unless I just missed it.

    Merry Christmas!
