Sunday Thoughts ~ January 19, 2020

“Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body.” ~ Proverbs 16:24

“They can be like the sun, words. They can do for the heart what light can for a field.” ~ Juan de la Cruz


Good Sunday morning, sweet souls.  I do hope you have enjoyed a lovely week.  As you know, on Sunday mornings I try to share something meaningful as well as beautiful.  For me, I often find beauty in words as well as images.  And, I try to keep the post short as I do know everyone’s time is precious.  Sunday’s can be busy days.

So, today I leave you with the lovely thoughts of Juan de la Cruz, about words.  Doesn’t it bring you joy to think something you may say to someone would touch their heart like sunshine on a field of sunflowers?  It certainly does me. 

“They can be like the sun, words. They can do for the heart what light can for a field.”  ~ Juan de la Cruz


Know, I so appreciate your visit.


In the week ahead, may your heart be touched by the ‘sun.’

Wishing you and yours a beautiful day.

  1. Dear friend, your post is like a bright light in the morning. Although I write to you being here at 6.30pm. and it is night, I read your message early this morning, but today it was a “little” bustling day because my daughter came to eat with her husband and children and that means being in the kitchen all morning and then the bustle of children playing…
    I love your dates, they always give off positivity and love.

    1. Dear Dolores, how I love your visits and your lovely words. You are a treasure to me, as well as a gift from above. Have a beautiful week, dear friend. ❤

  2. Enjoyed reading both the Proverb and the quote by Juan de la Cruz. Words have such power to change our world for good or evil, to lift our spirits or to weight them down. So thankful for your beautiful words that you share time after time here on your lovely blog.

    Wishing you a beautiful Sunday, Sandra.

    1. Dear Brenda, I so agree with you regarding the power of words. I try to choose my words carefully, although I must say, sometimes I fail. Thank you so much for your always kind and encouraging words. I am pleased you enjoy the blog. Wishing you a beautiful week. ❤

    1. Dear Lidy, your words are so very true. I thank you for your visit and kind words. Blessings, sweet friend.❤

  3. Sandra, I love the Proverbs scripture! Words can provide love and comfort, but they also have the power to tear down. Thank you for your loving and kind words my friend!

    1. Dear Pam, I so appreciate you and always your kind words. Wishing you a beautiful week. Blessings, dear one.❤

  4. Sunflowers are my favorite! It may be a Tuesday but on this wintry, snowy day, seeing those bright sunny blooms makes me smile extra big!

    1. I’m glad you enjoy them, Jeanie. I imagine you are seeing winter in all her glory. Hope you are feeling better. Drink tea and read your books, that is a guaranteed cure for anything.
