    Great Post and Lovely picture of the Peonies flowers – they are a favorite of mine :) It was fun to get to know you a little… there is nothing like the peace that comes from being comfortable in our own skin! Blessings to you, stopping by from Thought Provoking Thursday :)

      Thank you, Danise! This was a fun post to write, different from what I’m used to, but enjoyable. It’s taken me a long time to get comfortable in my own skin. It came when I began believing HIM over myself.
      I appreciate your visit!
      Have a wonderful day…

    Oh my! I haven’t done something similar to this in years. May have to try this one – LOVE your movie quote pick! Here is one of my fav from Persuasion… When Anne is reading Captain Wentworth’s truly AMAZING love letter.

    “You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope. Tell me not that I am too late, that such precious feelings are gone for ever. I offer myself to you again with a heart even more your own than when you almost broke it, eight and a half years ago. Dare not say that a man forgets sooner than woman, that his love has an earlier death. I have loved none but you. Unjust I may have been, weak and resentful I have been, but never inconstant.”
    – Jane Austen, Persuasion, Ch. 23

    Have a fabulous day :)

    • StefanieYoungBrown

      Oh, Kathleen… I’m a HUGE Jane Austen fan! Love the quote you shared:))
      Have a wonderful weekend, my friend!

    Pet Peeves- Finger pointers. People who always point the finger at you and try to make every problem seem like it’s your doing, rather than be mature enough to take responsibility for their own actions and admit they were wrong. And maybe even say , “I’m sorry”. Other pet peeves are rudeness, people who are very critical and are always correcting you, and people who use the F word frequently.

    • StefanieYoungBrown

      I’m right there with you on all the pet peeves you mentioned. What’s up with us?:)))

        haha. I don’t know. Great minds think alike? God has a certain way of putting people in the path of each other – I know that much!

        • StefanieYoungBrown

          I totally agree:)))
