Quote for the day



My theater season has begun.
A group of friends and I attend
The Little Theater in Sullivan, IL.
We meet up,
 dine out, and then go to the musical.
It is always, always a blast.
They make me cackle.
Our first show was Grease.
It was really good even though I kept nodding off.
Feed me, prop me up and get  me warm...
you get what you get.
On the way to the show,
Jade's mom, the infamous Ruby picked us all up.
After we picked up our last pal,
Audrey( Jade's aunt)
she said she had a quote for us.
She said "Who said this?"...
"Life is not always pretty but Jesus loves me."
We guess...
I guess "Patsy Clairmont?"
Nope.
Hmm. 
"Joyce Meyer?"
Nope.
I say "okay I give, who said it?"
She says "you did."
HUH?
"you did, Janie Fox"
She said "I loved it and wrote it down by
my other quotes. 
You are right beside Teddy Roosevelt."
I said "well, yeah that's me...
so much wisdom, so little memory."
Pass the pills.

  6. I happen to think Teddy Roosevelt was the greatest president ever, and I liked him as a person too, even though we've never met. :) So anyway, being right up there next to him is pretty darn awesome in my book. "Life is not always pretty but Jesus loves me." Preach it.

  7. Very often, I will have friends say to me, "I'll never forget that thing you said to me," and then a wave of sheer horror crashes over me because you can never be too sure about what might come out of my mouth.

    You, my dear, are indeed quite quotable. I find myself quoting you often. "I can't care" has taken up permanent residence in my vocabulary.

    But I do care, deeply, that life is not always pretty but Jesus loves me.
