Sabbath Keeping

 ~ early morning fog ~
 "Answer me, O Lord, out of the goodness of your love, in your great mercy turn to me."  
~ Psalms 69-16 ~

 "Lord, I know not what I ought to ask of Thee, Thou only knowest what we need; Thou lovest me better than I know how to love myself, O Father! give to Thy child that which he himself knows not how to ask. I dare not ask either for crosses or consolations; I simply present myself before Thee; I open my heart to Thee. Behold my needs which I know  not myself, see, and do according to Thy tender mercy. Smite, or heal; depress me, or raise me up; I adore all Thy purposes without knowing them; I am silent, I offer myself in sacrifice; I yield myself to Thee; I would have no other desire than to accomplish Thy will. Teach me to pray; pray Thyself in me." ~ Fenelon ~

"May your unfailing love be my comfort..." ~ Psalms 119:76 ~

"Love divine has seen and counted
   Every tear it caused to fall,
And the storm which Love appointed
   Was its choicest gift of all."
               ~ Anonymous ~ 

"I am serene because I know thou lovest me. Because thou lovest me, naught can move me from my peace. Because thou lovest me, I am as one to whom all good has come." ~ Gaelic Prayer ~


"For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known." ~ I Corinthians 13:12 ~

Blessings ~ The Word ~ Love ~ comfort ~ church on a Sunday morning ~ people who ask, "how are you doing? ~ The Father ~

Thanks for visiting Thistle Cove Farm,

  5. Beautiful, Sandra.

    Spring is coming to wake up all the sleepy heads from Winter. Things will look brighter and we will realize that Winter has made us appreciate Spring's awakening even more.

    Always love stopping by to visit.

  10. Hi Chris - any day we wake up above ground has got to be beautiful!

    Hi Amy - many thanks for visiting; you're always welcome at Thistle Cove Farm. Thanks for helping me out; I'm now your follower.

    Hi Nancy - thank you for following; I am most happy to go and do likewise!

    Hi Misa - tough week last week, tough week this week; I'm just home dragging my sorry rear along with a back in spasms. Go to Baptist this week for testing; keep praying and thank you!

    Hi Carol - we're still having snow so spring is, mostly, a wish -smile-.

    Hi Strawberry Mallard - you are always so welcome here; you're a treat!

    Hi LindaSue - it makes me happy you're seeing signs of spring; I'm looking, looking, looking...too.

    Hi Joni - we're still having snow flurries and snow still on ground. Spring is still a wish in progress.
