The Week in Words


Welcome to the first post of The Week in Words! Didn't Leah make a cute button? For your post, grab the code in my sidebar (and feel free to put it in your own sidebar).

Did you have fun looking for quotes this week? I know I did! Let's get this carnival started!

~"She looked like a collision between a fashion plate and a nightmare." ~Mr. Harrison (Anne of Avonlea, Chapter V)

~"You're never safe from being surprised till you're dead." ~Rachel Lynde (Anne of Avonlea, Chapter VIII)

~"She can put a whole sermon, text, comment, and application, into six words, and throw it at you like a brick." ~Mr. Harrison about Mrs. Lynde (Anne of Avonlea, Chapter IX)
 ~For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh. For I have the desire to do what is right, but not the ability to carry it out. - Romans 7:18 (ESV) If Paul struggled, why should I think I won't?

There are plenty of other quotes I could give, but these were the highlights of the week. The first three made me laugh out loud. The last brought introspection and gratitude for my Savior.

Remember to leave your link below, to your specific post. I can't wait to read the words that spoke to your heart this week.

Well, we did pick one of the same quotes after all! ;D

This was fun to do! I love your Anne quotes. It has been a very long time since I read the Anne books. I should revisit them!

Katrina @ Callapidder Days said...

Thanks for starting/hosting this carnival, Melissa!

I've never read any of the Anne books, but your quotes are tempting me!

Unknown said...

I'm reading Anne of Avonlea right now as well, and just yesterday I marked Rachel Lynde's quote as well!!

I'm not jumping in this week, but it's been fun seeing it pop up around. I'll have to make a point to do it next week.

Amy @ Hope Is the Word said...

Great Anne quotes and Bible verse! I enjoyed playing! Thanks for "thinking this up"!! :-)

Mocha with Linda said...

What fun! I'll have to join in. I love words!

And I love the Anne of Green Gables books. They do have some great quotes in there!

I found your blog from Amy at Hope is the Word.

I enjoyed your quotes, Melissa, and I'm really glad you began this carnival!

Love these, especially Romans 7:18 -- so true!

I came here for a visit after seeing "The Week in Words" on Carrie's and Susanne's blogs. It's a great idea! Is this just for this week, or will it be a regular Monday thing? If the latter, I'll plan to join in next Monday; if it is just this week, I'll join in one day this week.

A little late but I made it!

Love the Anne quotes. I have got to read those books!

I wanted to do this, Melissa, but my internet was so messed up yesterday and today. It's fixed now (I hope) but I have some other stuff scheduled. Are you doing this weekly? I want to play along sometime!
