Sabbath Keeping

"The LORD bless thee, and keep thee: The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace." ~ Numbers 6:24-26 ~

"If I have been of service, if I have glimpsed more of the nature and essence of ultimate good, if I am inspired to reach wider horizons of thought and action, if I am at peace with myself, it has been a successful day."  ~ Alex Noble ~
"Peace is not the absence of conflict but the presence of creative alternatives for responding to conflict -- alternatives to passive or aggressive responses, alternatives to violence." ~ Dorothy Thompson ~

Peace is not something you wish for; It's something you make, Something you do, Something you are, And something you give away.”    ~ Robert Fulghum ~
"Peace is not about the absence of conflict but the ability to deal with it." ~ author unknown ~

"I do not want the peace that passeth understanding. I want the understanding which bringeth peace."   ~ Helen Keller ~
 
"If you want to make peace, you don't talk to your friends. You talk to your enemies."
~ Moshe Dayan ~

"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you; not as the world
    gives do I give to you." ~ John 14:27 ~


 Until next time,

Blessings ~ understanding ~ wisdom ~ blessed peace, in our selves and in our homes ~

  8. Peace, as described in some of the quotes is actually a VERB! Who knew? Another thoughtful post Sandra, reminding me of Him and His ways of peace, the only true and real peace.

  9. All very profound but especially this "If you want to make peace you don't talk to your friends, you talk to your enemies." Now THAT will stick with me for a long time...

    Thank you, my dear sister in Christ. I always leave here a changed person, and that is good news!

  10. Peace is what we all need, beautiful pictures and statements. You found "peace" while visiting #541 on the OWOH Magic Carpet ride, and that is exactly what I want to give. Peace, harmony, calm, relaxation ....
    "In verdant pastures He gives me repose, beside restful waters He leadeth me", Psalm #23....I know I don't have the words exactly right but it's the meaning that is important, not the order of the words. God Bless. Peace, Julie
