Welcome to ABC Wednesday and the letter " Q ".

I was having QUITE a time coming up with a Q post for you.

I decided to use just one word and go from there.


The first QUOTE that goes with the sunset picture is:

" QUIET is peace!  Tranquility!  QUIET is turning down the
  volume knob on life.

  Silence is pushing the off button.

  Shutting it down.

  All of it."

Khaled Hosseini

" Winter is an etching

  Spring a watercolor

  Summer an oil painting


Autumn a mosaic of them all."

Stanley Horowitz

" Today's mighty Oak is just yesterday's nut,

  that held its ground."

David Icke

" The poetry of the earth is never dead...."

John Keats

  " The Lord is the One who is going ahead
    of you.

   He will be with you.

   He won't abandon you or leave you.

  So don't be afraid or terrified."

Deuteronomy 31:8

Thanks to the QUINTESSENTIAL team of
Denise, Roger and all the contributors.

You have made ABC Wednesday a wonderful

As always, ENLARGING my photos will show
the detail more clearly.

I like John Keats' words. And what beautiful images! Glad you included one from the Bible. It's not everyday I read any of it nowadays.

I like the quote about the Oak tree and the nut. Sometimes I think I'm the nut! -- and I hope an oak tree will grow from my life. The quote about the seasons is also beautiful and praise the Lord He is always there going before us to make the way safe for us. Some really interesting posts this week.
