Sabbath Keeping

~ His sheep know His voice, John 10:1-10 ~

"The joy of the Lord is your strength." ~ Nehemiah 8:9 ~


"A happy life must be to a great extent a quiet life, for it is only in an atmosphere of quiet that true joy can live." ~ Bertrand Russell ~


"The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law."  ~ Galations 5:22 ~

"For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~

"Learn to enjoy what you do; rather than do what you enjoy. It is not always possible to do things that one enjoys. But if you learn the art of joyful living, even seemingly boring chores can bring you joy."   ~ Author Unknown ~

"We could never learn to be brave and patient if there were only joy in the world." ~ Helen Keller ~

"The deeper that sorrow carves into your being the more joy you can contain. Is not the cup that holds your wine the very cup that was burned in the potter's oven?" ~ Kahil Gibran ~

"Grief can take care of itself, but to get the full value of joy you must have somebody to divide it with." ~ Mark Twain ~

"Weeping may endure for a night but joy cometh in the morning."  ~ Psalms 30:5 ~

Until next time,

Blessings ~ joy ~ a full life ~ friends ~ sunshine ~ everyday miracles ~ quiet ~
