– Edwin Markham
beautiful. and oh so very true. 🙂
Thanks for appreciating the truth in it!
It didn’t come easy with me at the start
but the truth and beauty of it did come.
Sometimes (and for me at least) defeat shakes my cockles and unearths what makes me ponder better than victory
and whatever is better than victory
must be really really great!
Maggie victory will be yours
— or you are it already?
You are the sweetest . . .loved the marshmallow test reply! 🙂 It reminds me of that saying of how we may loose some battles, but He has already won the war! May all my defeats shake His glory out of them . . .me!
Yessss He won the war!
All the glory to Him!
And for that marshmallow reply
— thanks to my daughter who ate it.
“Out of defeat comes the lessons of victory.”
Lovely quote!!! 🙂
Take care Alan
and hopefully the student is ready 🙂
So true, so true … have to be willing to find ‘victory’ in defeat, though.
Yes got to find the gem
covered with choco mud
and artificial colors.
And I’m not talking about
You find the greatest quotes, ‘spoon’…I LOVE them!
Got to beat that defeating attitude
otherwise the attitude defeats us.
Uh do I make sense?
Got to shake myself 🙂
I just noticed that this post is dated 12/1/10, but where I am it is still 11/30/10, and only 9:00 in the morning! This made me smile. 🙂 Peace, Linda
it’s past midnight in here
i’m about to sleep in a few momentzzzz
This is one of those ideas that is not intuitive, but has much truth in it. Even in defeat we are victorious in Christ, and when we weather defeat and maintain our joy (which is not the same as happiness, it is much better), then God’s glory is revealed. Peace, Linda
and when God’s glory is revealed
we can’t help but trust Him
with the other ‘defeating’ moments.
Deep inside we knew victory is on the other side
but doubt if we will pass the marshmallow test
— do not eat defeat! yay!
