Quotes To Live By

Quote #54: Wallace “Wally” Mayton

"Hi, I’m Wally Mayton, Retired Pastor and current Parish Associate at Memorial Presbyterian Church in Midland. I am also a member of the Midland Area Wellbeing Coalition. A quote that is meaningful to me is: “Morning is God’s way of saying one more time, go make a difference, touch a heart, inspire a soul, and just enjoy this day.” Its author is Islamic scholar Mufti Menk. The reason I find this quote so meaningful is that it was personally recommended to me by a devoted friend and neighbor in the community. This quote supports my well-being by reminding me of my purpose to encourage, affirm, and enjoy. It also inspires me to practice neighboring. Where shall we find our enjoyment? Where there is an opportunity to create or sustain compassion, kindness, forgiveness, and friendship, we shall welcome the new day. “Eat, drink, and take pleasure in any toil.” (Ecclesiastes 3)"
