Weekly Photo Challenge: Red

" . . . like a Red Rubber Ball . . . "


If all hearts were open and all desires known–as they would be if people showed their souls–how many gapings, sighings, clenched fists, knotted brows, broad grins, and red eyes should we see in the marketplace.   –Thomas Hardy

If I can sell tickets to my movies like Red Sonja . . . you know I can sell just about anything.  –Arnold Schwartznegger

And waving our red weapons o’er our heads, let’s all cry, “Peace, freedom, and liberty . . . ”  –Shakespeare, Julius Caesar

Give her two red roses, each with a note. In the first note say, “For the woman I love,” and the second, “For my best friend.”  –Unknown


The Lewis and Clark Expidition began on this day, in 1804.

    1. Oh, C.M., thanks so much! I see a show like this every morning! I so love it.
      I did have fun finding the quotes. They are so eye-opening for me, and I love sharing them. I imagine readers copying them for posters on their walls. Silly me! But if we even keep a few in our memories, to guide us along, it will help us be better people.

  1. Can you believe Arnold S is getting a Divorce? Shocking to me. I guess he wants to get back into movies and she wants a settled life.

    1. Oh, I can believe it, although it is so sad. The marriage is supposed to be a picture of Christ and the Church. So I guess theirs is a picture of the Church thumbing its nose at Jesus. Sighs.

  2. I just realized you love Voice of the Persecuted Christians. I get their magazine in the mail and I read it with tears and some of joys. They really do a great job around the world for Christians and non.

    1. Yes! VOM is one of the organizations I feel I get the most for the money, when I contribute. I can hardly bear to view the photos they send of bruised and bleeding Christians who were only trying to reach out to the sad and lonely–people no one else wants–but then they were tortured or even killed for trying to do so, and sometimes before the very eyes of their own children. How evil the world has become, all over again…
