Ruffle Your Nest

The Ruffled Nest 
August 22-24
Come & Enjoy
 I was at my sister Sherrie's house last week 
and we stopped by
 The Nest
 because I needed a Nest fix.
I love going into her and Rachel's little shop.
The Ruffled Nest had been busy 
over the last month 
and Sherrie said that
it was not at all in order.
You know what?
I don't care.
I Love It!



 The Ruffled Nest will, God willing, soon become
Urban Grace
Sherrie and Rachel will have a new and bigger space
for all of their goodies.
They will also be open five days a week 
when the new shop opens.




 If you are in the DeKalb / Sycamore / Chicago area 
make sure that you take the time to stop by
The Ruffled Nest.
It is locate one hour west of Chicago.
It's time to Nest.

A Simple Rule


"The rule for all of us is perfectly simple. 
Do not waste time bothering whether you ‘love’ your neighbour; act as if you did. 
As soon as we do this we find one of the great secrets. 

When you are behaving as if you loved someone,
 you will presently come to love him. 
If you injure someone you dislike,
 you will find yourself disliking him more. 
If you do him a good turn, you will find yourself disliking him less.

 There is, indeed, one exception.
 If you do him a good turn, not to please God and obey the law of charity, but to show him what a fine forgiving chap you are, and to put him in your debt, and then sit down to wait for his ‘gratitude’, you will probably be disappointed.
 (People are not fools: they have a very quick eye for anything like showing off, or patronage.) 
But whenever we do good to another self, just because it is a self, made (like us) by God, and desiring its own happiness as we desire ours, we shall have learned to love it a little more or, at least, to dislike it less."



       I sure have learned this lesson over the last several years.
 Humbling.      
                      
                           Much Love,
                          Joyce
