~ Sam, 'herding' sheep ~"Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the Lord is good: his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations." ~ Psalms 100:1-5 ~
"If God asks that you bend, bend and do not complain. He is making you more flexible, and for this be thankful." ~ Terri Guillemets ~
"Let God's promises shine on your problems."
~ Corrie Ten Boom ~
"Young man, young man, your arm's too short to box with God."
~ James Weldon Johnson ~
"God's gifts put man's best dreams to shame."
Every evening I turn my worries over to God. He's going to be up all night anyway.
~ Mary C. Crowley ~
"God loves each of us as if there were only one of us."
~ St. Augustine ~
"A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, 'darkness' on the walls of his cell."
~ C.S. Lewis, The Problem of Pain ~
"The feeling remains that God is on the journey, too."
~ Teresa of Avila ~
"Weave in faith and God will find the thread." ~ Author Unknown ~

"When we lose God, it is not God who is lost." ~ Author Unknown ~
"Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice. Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."
~ Philippians 4: 4-7 ~
I'm breaking with tradition and ceasing "blessings" on Sabbath Keeping. Now, there will be a "Prayer Keeping" section; if you'd like your name, or initial, added to this list, please let me know either by commenting on this post or by a private e-mail. God knows you by name and knows your needs so just your name, added to each Sabbath Keeping post, will let me and others remember you in prayer. I still keep my private prayer list but will not post your name, or initial, publicly unless you request.
