Through Your Eyes Only (read all the way to end in order to make sense)


Random thoughts by Stephanie Abney (ends with a dang good quote you might like) ~

Greetings!!

Well, I have been out of town as most of you know to help my sister who just had surgery. Things went very well. (She saw the doc and is on ANOTHER round of antibiotics for infections, but otherwise, things are good).

Since I got home last night and have been playing “catch up” and running errands all day, I have yet to post a blog and it IS my turn. I’ve been thinking about it, but nothing pressing seems to be presenting itself. However, I was looking at some quotes and was quite taken with this one and so I am simply going to leave you with the quote and would love to see what it makes each of you think of. Be sure to leave your remarks in the comments section so we can see what everyone thinks.

Hope summer is being good to all of you. Here in AZ, it’s very hot!!!!

This makes a good challenge for each of us:

  1. Whoa, deep thoughts. I really like your quote Stephanie. To me it says that my voice matters.

  2. My first thought was that without me (and my husband) my seven children might never have been seen, especially looking like they do. My less than perfect needlework, my smile, and I hope my memoirs, my Christmas letters, my point of view and I hope, or wish, another witness of Christ.

  3. I like it, too.

    I have been thinking a lot about why I want to be published. I'm not really into being showy and famous and saying "See what I did." I think it's like this quote--creating something that didn't exist before, allowing people to see something that only I can show them because I was given a particular idea or story to share.

  4. Shades of the famed Christmas story. I wonder if someday in heaven we might discover that. Because I often wonder what impact I have being without a husband or children. At least I think I can count on my doggies to say well we needed her, ha ha.

  5. I love this quote, Stephanie. What a great reminder that every single one of us has something individual to contribute, from nurturing the unseen in someone else to unique perspective in writing or testimony. Thanks!

  6. Great quote, Stephanie! I love the comments posted in response, too. This is a great bunch of women. I'm glad you are home safe and sound and that your sister is on her way to wellness.

  7. Stephanie, First of all; you have been in my prayers for the past few weeks. I am glad to hear things are progressing well for your sis. I will continue to pray for your daughter.

    As far as the quote. I feel invisible right now so it made me realize how NOT invisible I really am so I quit the stinkin' thinkin'. Thanks for the quote.
