Glory in leaving your mark
leaving your mark by Joseph Farley

    I love this quote, so glad you shared it. That first word “glory” means so much, bringing with it a sense of wonder and awe and gratitude and joy and holiness. And blessedness. This life of ours.

      “In the moment” at its best.

  2. Jane's Heartsong

    I like this.Thank-you for sharing.

    • laura bruno lilly

      You’re welcome, Jane.

  3. That is beautiful and inspiring, thanks for sharing that with us 🙂

      I think the Canva platform enabled setting of the quote adds to its presentation tremendously, ya know? wink-wink
      Thanks for stopping by, Tierney.

    “Be glad with what you have done” is sometimes difficult for me to do. Shouldn’t I be doing more, I ask myself? But maybe the answer is NO, you’re fine as is. Thanks for this encouragement.

    • laura bruno lilly

      Yeah, I know what you mean…I find myself having to mindfully slow down enough to linger and savor those moments when something **does** get done.

  5. Marie A Bailey

    Oh, I should print it out and hang it on every door and mirror in my house 🙂 Thank you for sharing it!

    • laura bruno lilly

      Wow! Sounds good to me!

    How can I express how this quotation resonates? I can’t. So I will just thank you for finding it and sharing it and tell you that I intend to copy it out so that I can read and reread it until I know it by heart, for as long as I last.

    • laura bruno lilly

      I can feel your enthusiasm all the way from there to here, Mariss! It does my (he)art good to know it has touched you so.

  7. Andy

    I’ve always had a sense that we are moving through moments, leaving markers in the sand as we go.

    • laura bruno lilly

      Lovely visual, Andy.

  8. Jennie

  10. Cheryl, Gulf Coast Poet

    A wise and relatable quote, Laura! <3

    • laura bruno lilly

      Thanks, Cheryl!

  11. Laura

    Love this! It seems to me a very poetic way of saying…””Life’s journey is not to arrive at the grave safely, in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting “Holy Shit, what a ride!” (I’ve seen this quote attributed to several, so don’t know the origin.) 🙂

    • laura bruno lilly

      Hey Laura, thanks for skidding over here and shouting out your take on this quote – I do like the visual of skidding sideways to the ‘finish line’.
      My take away on the quote is skewed towards the ‘glorying’ in life’s moments as they happen – I tend to nod as I pass by and push on to the next ‘mark’.

  12. Pat

    I really like this quote. Laura, it was perfect for me at this point in my life. Thanks.

    • laura bruno lilly

      Somehow I knew it’d ring true for you, my dear Michigan friend.

  13. petespringerauthor

    I love the quote, Laura. My head has been in this space for a long time. The main thing for me is to continue to move forward as a human being and to leave a positive mark on those around me. The successes we have in our lives, regardless if they’re big or small, may inspire someone else to find the courage to try. What could be more noble than that?

    • laura bruno lilly

      Absolutely, Pete. Sounds like we’ve been occupying a similar ‘head space’ lately.

  14. L. Marie

    A very intriguing quote, Laura. The good thing about being (he)artists (as you always mention) is that the things done for the Creator outlive us.

    • laura bruno lilly

      Yes, L. Marie – an encouraging and humbling fact of being an (he)artist of faith.
