Spiritual Quotes To Live By


 June 2017   


Well, where did those months go? I hadn't realised I haven't updated this page for so long, or that I haven't done a blog for over two months. I did write some poems over that time, but they were not from quotes, so were not added to the blog.


 Etsy Shop


The main change is that I now have an Etsy Shop:  SpiritualQuotesTLB  (I couldn't use the full name as too many letters) where I sell instantly downloadable items to print yourself.

All of the items use quotes, sayings and poems from this site, so the theme is 'Positive Inspirational Quotes.' If you do not already have one, you will need to set up an Etsy account to be able to instantly download, this is free and easy to do (more info). 

We all like to read reviews and check out what other people are buying before we go ahead with a new buy, so as expected, it's a bit of a slow start, but I have been blessed with my first sale, so that's the first major hurdle over! I know it's just a matter of time and positivity till things pick up. The great thing is, I can come here and read something inspirational and encouraging to boost myself when I start thinking anything negative about my lack of sales!

Apart from various sized prints of inspirational poems, greetings cards and bookmarks, one of the things I am creating are small quote card packs. I have made myself various sets over the years as I love to be able to have inspirational quotes close at hand. So far I have created 3 packs of 100 quotes in each, they have positive words on the reverse side of the cards and some spare cards to add more quotes of your own, or if you are giving them as a gift you can add a message or two. A box pattern is also provided to store them in (with positive words on the inside).  You can read all of the quotes in each pack from the 'New Pages' listed below (100 series)

These are some of my items for sale to instantly download and print...



 New Pages


The new pages added recently are:

The page of Uplifting Hymns is something I have been meaning to do for a long time and I am thrilled that I have at long last got around to doing this page as I made a wonderful discovery...  I wanted to add some videos, mainly to get the music for each hymn. I started with Amazing Grace, as I already knew of Home Free's beautiful version. From there I searched for more, wanting not just church organ/congregational singing type videos. Anyway, I discovered a whole new genre of beautiful, amazingly uplifting, devotional modern hymns that I never knew existed. If only this was the music we heard daily on the radio, what a different world we would be in. It is so powerful and you can't help but sing along and be elated. Of course some are more 'Christian' than others, but there are many that I believe are non-denominational. 

I am finding more and more beautiful songs everyday, but at the moment my absolute favourite is this: Awakening


Looks as though I shall have to create a page of modern hymns now!

The Family Is A Link To Our Past
And A Bridge To Our Future

Quote Title:  Alex Hayley
Poem:  Trina Graves

The family is a link to our past
Building treasured memories to last
All through our whole life long
As the generations continue on

We are each born into a time
Being the next in our family line
Our parents very own offspring
To them, the future we will bring

Grandparents told us stories of old
Sometimes tales, bleak and cold
When getting by was truly tough
So we realise, we have enough

But they also loved to tell
Of times they remember, oh so well
With their siblings, mum and dad
And the simple happiness they had...

When They Placed You In My Arms

Quote Title:  Unknown Author
Poem:  Trina Graves

When they placed you in my arms
For the first time after your birth
Is my most precious memory
Of my life here on this Earth

After endless months of waiting
Anxious that all would be well
Relief mixed with anticipation
As I floated under your spell

My love for you had grown stronger
Each day through pregnancy
In that moment it exploded
Awakening the Core of me...

The Best Time To Plant A Tree

Quote Title:  Unknown Author
Poem:  Trina Graves

The best time to plant a tree
Is twenty years ago
To give it the essential time
To develop, bloom and grow

Of course, this isn’t relevant
If you are still a youth
But, I’m sure you can see
This plain and simple truth

Trees are vital to our life
Here on this planet Earth
But do we really appreciate
Our trees, for all their worth?...

While We Are Sleeping

Quote Title:  Unknown Author
Poem:  Trina Graves

While we are sleeping
We let go of physicality
To experience our true form
Of Spirit, unlimited and free
We can go anywhere at all
With no limits of time or space
Explore our magnificent Universe
Or our past-lives we can re-trace

While we are sleeping
The concept of time disappears
Losing all of its boundaries
Only to the physical it adheres
After closing our eyes to sleep
It seems only minutes have gone by
When many hours later we awaken
And adapt to times apparent lie...

Every Instant Of Time
Is A Pinprick Of Eternity

Quote Title:  Marcus Aurelius
Poem:  Trina Graves

Time: A simple word that evokes so much
In the modern world it imprints on all we touch
Lives are ruled by the ticking of the clock
Conforming to its pace, we heed the tick-tock

It’s a man-made concept all so easily seen
When twice a year we have to adjust our routine
Changing the clock first forward and then back
Why does it continue? Is it sensibility we lack?..

Give And Take
Quote Title:  Kahlil Gibran
Poem:  Trina Graves

Give and take - it’s all about the balance
Both are vital, it’s certainly not by chance
That if we favour the one, over the other
Our growth in life, we will then smother

It’s easy to see how people who take always
Are blocking their integrity in selfish ways
Someone who just blindly focuses on self
Will never gain true freedom, or true wealth

Surprisingly though what many do not know
Is focusing on self is actually the way to grow
Seeking our Soul Guidance we become Aware
Of our true selves, then we desire to share...

When You Look At Your Life
The Greatest Happinesses
Are Family Happinesses

Quote Title:  Joyce Brothers
Poem:  Trina Graves

As you get older you more often reflect
The course of your life and you introspect
Remembering all the ups and some downs
The beautiful sights and wonderful sounds

The focus you chose and decisions you made
Became your life and your path was laid
Life continues to expand, there’s always more
To experience the joy is what you came here for

Reminiscing those carefree days of childhood
When all you wanted was to feel good
Playing with siblings, friends or by yourself
Imagination was your greatest wealth...
