Sabbath Keeping

  ~ the gateway to a WV farm ~
 "...I am come that they may have life and that they might have it more abundantly."
~ Jesus, John 10:10 ~

"When fishes flew and forests walked
and figs grew upon thorn,
Some moment when the moon was blood
Then surely I was born.

With monstrous head and sickening cry
And ears like errant wings,
The devil's walking parody
On all four-footed things.

The tattered outlaw of the earth,
Of ancient crooked will;
Starve, scourge, deride me: I am dumb,
I keep my secret still.

Fools! For I also had my hour;
One far fierce hour and sweet:
There was a shout about my ears,
And palms before my feet."

~ The Donkey by G. K. Chesterton ~

"The joyful news that he is risen does not change the contemporary world. Still before us lies work, discipline, sacrifice. But the fact of Easter gives us the spiritual power to do the work, accept the discipline and make the sacrifice." ~ Henry Knox Sherrill ~

"Easter says you can put truth in a grave but it won't stay there." ~ Clarence W. Hall ~

"Tomb, thou shalt not hold Him longer;
Death is strong, but life is stronger;
Stronger than the dark, the light;
Stronger than the wrong, the right. ..."
~ The Easter Carol by Phillips Brooks ~

"He takes men out of time and makes them feel eternity." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~
 ~ long distance view of farm driveway ~
"He which testifieth these things, saith,  Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus."
~ Revelation 22:20 ~

Blessings ~ Easter ~ Christ is risen! ~ the 10 Commandments ~ life more abundantly ~ He will restore the years which the locust have eaten ~ His creation ~

Thanks for visiting Thistle Cove Farm,
Sandra
