Sabbath Keeping

~ Morris Knob, Thanksgiving day, partially covered with snow and clouds ~

 "Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth."
~ Psalm 46:10 ~

“There is immense power in stillness. A great saint once said, “All things come to him who knows how to trust and be silent.” The words are pregnant with meaning. A knowledge of this fact would immensely change our ways of working. Instead of restless struggles, we would “sit down” inwardly before the Lord, and would let the Divine forces of His Spirit work out in silence the ends to which we aspire. You may not see or feel the operations of this silent force, but be assured it is always working mightily, and will work for you, if you only get your spirit still enough to be carried along by the currents of its power.” ~ Hannah Whitall Smith ~

 "Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint." ~ Isaiah 40:30-31 ~

"An inability to stay quiet is one of the conspicuous failings of mankind."  ~ Walter Bagehot ~

"In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit."    ~ Albert Schweitzer ~

"The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song." ~ Psalms 28:7 ~

 "There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle." ~ Albert Einstein ~
 "In quiet places, reason abounds." ~ Adlai Stevenson ~

"It's about the journey--mine and yours--and the lives we can touch, the legacy we can leave, and the world we can change for the better." ~ Tony Dungy ~

Until next time,

Blessings ~ change ~ quiet ~ strength ~ stillness ~ the journey ~ our legacy ~ another beautiful day ~
