Stevenson quote 4

Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant. ~Robert Louis Stevenson~ (click to tweet)

Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. ~II Corinthians 9:6~

But the seed that fell on good soil stands for those with a noble and good heart, who hear the word, retain it, and by persevering produce a crop. ~Luke 8:15~

Photo Backstory: Here’s the lake at Camp Iroquoina in Hallstead, PA, where my students & I spent half of last week. I soaked in many lovely sights, and my coworkers were kind & left me at the lodge with a book and hot chocolate during the Mission Impossible game—which the kids played at night in the rain & mud! But best of all, I spent some valuable downtime with my students, playing Scrabble, taking walks, and chatting about all our favorite things. What seeds have you been planting lately, friends?

I teach literature in a Christian high school by day and write inspirational fiction by night. I love to share heart-touching quotes and stories here on my blog. So glad you stopped by!

    Another beautiful matching of photo & quote! I cannot tell you how this one spoke to me ever so deeply today as it is the start of a new year of teaching Bible Study for me. Thank you for sharing this TODAY!

  7. Beautiful thoughts here! 🙂 Lately the Lord has been teaching me to do less and focus on the “being.” I’m visiting from the Desire to Inspire link-up.

  8. Renee, talking about seed sowing is timely, and your photo is so beautiful with the Autumn orange against the green. I, too, love to write inspirational fiction. I’m working on a number of projects at the moment, and one is a reconstructed biography of my great aunt.

    Blessings for an inspirational day,

    Marianne
