I love this blog! I've been collecting quotations from books for many years, so I'll send them to you bit by bit.
From AA Milne, Winnie the Pooh, end of last chapter:
" 'When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,' said Piglet...'what's the first thing you say to yourself?'
'What's for breakfast?' said Pooh. 'What do you say, Piglet?'
'I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today ?' said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully.
'It's the same thing,' he said."
Thoughts about the quotation:
Piglet's phrasing "I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?" makes this thought already exciting and anticipatory of Good Things. This stands in complete contrast to the Monday morning feeling of most people--'back to the grind'. It's all about letting ourselves be open to the blessings of the Lord, and allowing Him to allow us to be blessings for other people too. That's the excitement--the synergy that is possible!
