SPARK on Monday


Hello Monday!    Second day of Spring………………….a really GOOD time for a SPARK isn’t it.    So what is this SPARK thing all about?   “SPARKS” was started by Annie McGuffy of McGuffy’s Reader but ended when she stopped blogging some time ago.  It was meant to be a way to start out each week with with a meaningful thought – something that spoke to each of us and hopefully everyone else who read it.  Although Annie isn’t currently blogging, a lot of us who enjoyed her SPARKS decided to keep posting SPARKS of our own.   Why?   Because sometimes we need a little “spark” in our lives and these posts were meant to at least be a PART of that effort.   Please feel free to post your own SPARK on your blog and let everyone know you have…….we get energy from each other that way.

No surprise I’m sure that top of my mind is the world situation………………….and I wanted a special SPARK to express my own heart………….I found many special SPARK quotes by a remarkable man named Elie Wiesel.

Who Was Elie Wiesel?

Born on September 30, 1928, in Sighet, Romania, Elie Wiesel pursued Jewish religious studies before his family was forced into Nazi death camps during WWII. Wiesel survived, and later wrote the internationally acclaimed memoir Night. He also penned many books and became an activist, orator and teacher, speaking out against persecution and injustice across the globe. Wiesel died on July 2, 2016 at the age of 87.

So here is my SPARK:

And if it doesn’t – it SHOULD.    At least that’s what I think.    Here we are – many or most of us thousands of miles away and yet our hearts are RIGHT THERE.    RIGHT THERE!  So I still have that candle in my window and will leave it there until there is plenty of light back in the world.    Which I hope is SOON!

Hugs of Hope, Pam

  1. Elie Wiesel was amazing We hve read his book and were so moved by his beautiful writing about the terrible events of the holocaust. Amazing man. Would that there were more like him. Thank you for making him your spark.


  2. I am completely with you in this thought and hope. Not ony in Russia but everywhere. There is much sorrow in the world.


  3. I am just now able to sit down and do some catching up…
    That spark should be in the forefront of all of our minds right now. I feel so bad for al the innocents who have to be in the midst of this horror.

    If everyone got on their knees and prayed and then told all of them that we did, maybe just maybe Mr Enemy might turn from his evil plans.
