The Bible seldom speaks, and certainly never its deepest, sweetest words, to those who always read it in a hurry. Nature can only tell her secrets to such as will sit still in her sacred temple till their eyes lose the glare of earthly glory, and their ears are attuned to her voice. And shall revelation do what nature cannot? Never! The man who shall win the blessedness of hearing her must watch daily at her gates and wait at the posts of her doors. There is no chance for a lad to grow, who only gets an occasional mouthful of food and always swallows in a hurry.
F.B. Meyer (1847-1929)

Hello again Cori

Excellent question! I had to look it up, and this is the definition that I found on Wikipedia:
"A meme consists of any unit of cultural information, such as a practice or idea, that gets transmitted verbally or by repeated action from one mind to another. Examples include thoughts, ideas, theories, practices, habits, songs, dances and moods and terms such as race, culture, and ethnicity."

All kinds of meme's seem to be popular in blog land.

I love the quote and picture on your blog today -- very inspirational! It is well to slow down and savor the best that life has to offer....too often we rush through the days and lose them.
