" #PleaseStealThese "  -- Lucki
Why don't you ever do some of your own from your blogs? -- Bri Landis

That was an unexpected question, the answer to which was it didn't occur to me. But it sure was an idea whose time has come, and I'm really grateful for the suggestion. So, this year's quotes come from Abiding Blog articles. Plus the usual baker's dozen for Baha'i events, focusing on the Writings of the Bab and with a nod to the 12 Steps. Feel free to copy/paste any images anywhere. Your social media, emails, a card, poster, T-shirt, whatever. But just for your personal use, not $-making. Please don't crop credit lines. Do use hashtags. Feel free to email me to request a high-reolution copy of any image(s) on this page. And enjoy!

2022-05-21 Silent Scream
#Rudeness   #Dreadlocks
[Silent scream at the lady who'd sped up behind me, laid hold of my locs without a by-your-leave or any warning whatsoever, and then berated ME 'cuz she only wanted to feel what they were like and now she's got some kind of stuff all over her hand.] Get OFF! I ain't your touchy-feely petting-zoo exhibit. Or your animate good-luck charm (name notwithstanding). Or even your obligatory educator in all things black(ish). Keep your frikkin' paws to yourself. #Rudeness #Dreadlocks #AbidingBlog2017Hair
2022-05-14 Going Gentle
#SelfCare   #LettingGo
...today self-care looks like wrapping 19-year-old Silver cat in a big towel and holding him close so that the last thing he knows is warmth and softness and the sound of a heartbeat (which is the first thing he knew even before he was born). Like letting him go gentle into his good night. Like not raging, raging against the dying of his light. #SelfCare #LettingGo #AbidingBlog2017Silver
2022-05-07 Cat Years
#Cats   #CatYears
This is how you calculate years for Felis silvestris catus: Take the number of human years. Multiple by 5. Then -- and here's the part people usually forget -- add 7. Because in  their first year, cats mature at the rate of about 1 cat year for every 1 human month. After that, they slow down to 5 cat years for every 1 human year. #Cats #CatYears #AbidingBlog2017Silver

For Twelfth of Ridvan & Step 6
2022-05-02 Willingness!
#Bahai   #Love   #Steadfastness
Cheer our hearts through the potency of Thy love and good-pleasure and bestow upon us steadfastness that we may willingly submit to Thy Will and Thy Decree. #Bahai #Love #Steadfastness #thebab

2022-04-30 The Kool-Aid

#HowWeThink   #WhatWeSay
Lesson: Whatch what you say. Watch how you say it. Watch the very words you use. You might start to believe yourself...to death. #HowWeThink #WhatWeSay #AbidingBlog2016KoolAid

For Ninth of Ridvan & Step 5
2022-04-29 Integrity!
#Bahai   #Belief   #Truth
Verily He is fully cognizant of the righteous, for He is with such of His servants as truly believe in Him.... #Bahai #Belief #Truth #thebab
x

2022-04-23 Portrayals

#Actor   #Reality
I deeply respect actors who have willingly mastered torquing their innate reality to subtly inform their portrayals. Rather than, say, to fearfully suppress or foreclose on their truths or to carelessly bollix their gigs. #Actor #Reality #AbidingBlog2016Who

For First of Ridvan & Step 4
2022-04-21 Courage!
#Bahai   #Attention   #Proof
Ponder for a while in thy heart, have pity on thyself and turn not aside thine attention from proofs and evidences. #Bahai #Attention #Proof #thebab

2022-04-16 Whom?

#ThankYou    #Thanksgiving
Every once in a while, a new Thanksgiving meme comes along. Or at least a new twist on an old meme. The one that struck me this year was asking--instead of the old "What do you give thanks for today?"--the slightly but deeply different question "WHOM do you give thanks for today?" #ThankYou #Thanksgiving #AbidingBlog2015Whom
x
2022-04-09 Seasoning
#ThankYou    #MakeTheirDay
Remember to thank people who do special things for you, even--especially--when they didn't think it was anything special. Savor your chances to say so. Saying so is always in season, and it just might spice up their day. #ThankYou #MakeTheirDay #AbidingBlog2014Seasoning

2022-04-02 Not Love
#FreeWill    #UnconditionalLove
[God] loves us so much He gives us the right to not love Him or each other or our own self if that's how we want it. How's that for unconditional love?! #FreeWill #UnconditionalLove #AbidingBlog2012Not
x
2022-03-26 Not Robots
#FreeWill    #LiveAndLearn
[God] loves us so much He has decided not to make us robots. He loves us so much He lets us make our own mistakes. Learn our own necessary lessons. Achieve our own hard-fought victories. #FreeWill #LiveAndLearn #AbidingBlog2012Not

For Naw-Ruz & Step 3
2022-03-21 Faith!
#Bahai   #Belief   #Doubt
Know thou, that thou wilt succeed ... if thou believest with undoubting faith. #Bahai #Belief #Doubt #thebab

2022-03-19 Not Life

#NotGodsFault  #Spirit
When we refuse to love that spirit of life, when we aren't filled with that spirit of life, when we do things contrary to that spirit of life, when we neglect those who are bereft of that spirit of life, that's NOT God's fault. #NotGodsFault #Spirit #AbidingBlog2012Not
x

2022-03-12 Not Indict
#NotGodsFault  #OurFaultI choose never to even accidentally indict God for what one or all of us do or neglect to do. #NotGodsFault #OurFault #AbidingBlog2012Not
x

2022-03-05 Not God
#GodIsNot  #GodIsLove
I choose not to define [God] as neglectful or angry or judgmental or vengeful or punishing or a sadistic paranoid schizophrenic. I choose to define Him as an always-loving God. Which is the kind of God I need in my life. #GodIsNot #GodIsLove #AbidingBlog2012Not

For 19-Day (daylight) Fast & Step 2
2022-03-02 Hope!
#Bahai   #Grace   #Blessings
Every hope hath been frustrated save the yearning for Thy heavenly grace, and every door is barred except the portal leading to the well-spring of Thy blessings. #Bahai #Grace #Blessings #thebab
x

2022-02-26 Not Forget
 
#Pain   #Prayer
I choose never to forget that the worst-wounded spirits, those who have suffered self-inflicted pain the longest, are most in need of prayer and mercy. #Pain #Prayer #AbidingBlog2012Not

For Ayyam-i-Ha & Step 1
2022-02-25 Honesty!
#Bahai   #Honesty   #Truth
If thou embracest the Truth, everything good and seemly shall be set down for thee.... #Bahai #Honesty #Truth #thebab

2022-02-19 Not Separate

#HowWeThink   #WhatWeSay
I know that the way we think affects what we say and how we say it. I equally believe that the way we say things affects what and how we think. #HowWeThink #WhatWeSay #AbidingBlog2012Not

2022-02-12 Pyroclasm

#Racism   #Materialism  #PoliticalCorruption

We're seeing the results - played out on the national (and even the global) economic and political stage - of what happens when racism, materialism, and political corruption all come together in one massive pyroclastic eruption of hateful fear, arrogant greediness, and rampant power-mongering ... And haven't we been reminded lately that we can't fix the problem if we can't see the problem? #Racism #Materialism #PoliticalCorruption #AbidingBlog2012Pyroclasm

2022-02-05 Curveball
#PoV   #MentalDefault

Because most of us operate most of the time in line with our default assumptions or cultural axioms, we don't actually stop to analyze why. So when someone throws us a curveball...we're apt to swing and miss. #PoV #MentalDefault #AbidingBlog2011NOffense

2022-01-29 Black Culture
#PoV   #MentalDefault
Sometimes it's the little things that have the biggest impact over time. #PoV #MentalDefault #AbidingBlog2011NOffense

2022-01-22 Little Things
#LittleThing   #BigImpact

Sometimes it's the little things that have the biggest impact over time. #LittleThing #BigImpact #AbidingBlog2011Graduated

2022-01-15 Same Family
#Humanity   #Environment

...all the people are the same human family, and they should also care about all the places in the world, not just the one they live in. #Humanity #Environment #MyaWilder #AbidingBlog2011Circle
x
2022-01-08 EcoMantra
#Environment   #Recycle

RECYCLE everything you can. REUSE [or repurpose] twice as much as you recycle. REDUCE twice as much as you reuse. #Environment #Recycle #AbidingBlog2011RRR

2022-01-01 Down & Up
#Service   #MilitaryHonors

Just because someone has finished their stint in the service, it doesn't mean they've stopped serving. #Service #MilitaryHonors #AbidingBlog2011Service
