Sabbath Keeping

 ~ January 2010 Wolf Moon ~
"Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow."
~ Psalm 51:7 ~

"As snow in summer, and as rain in harvest, so honour is not seemly for a fool." ~ Proverbs 26:1 ~

 "Every one of our greatest national treasures, our liberty, enterprise, vitality, wealth, military power, global authority, flow from a surprising source: our ability to give thanks."  ~ Tony Snow ~
 
 "So comes snow after fire and even dragons have their ending." ~ J. R. R. Tolkien ~

And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow,

stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons.

It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags.

And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore.

Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before.

What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store.

What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.

~ Dr. Seuss ~

 "To appreciate the beauty of a snowflake, it is necessary to stand out in the cold." ~ unknown ~

  3. I love all the quotes but my personal favorite is the one from Tolkein....I really do love the way he writes...."even dragons have their ending." Love it!

    The photo looks like the tree has captured and imprisoned the moon, one could write a fanciful story about that.
