Sabbath Keeping

"Tell the Israelites to move on." ~ Exodus 14:15 ~

"Be trustful, be steadfast, whatever betide thee,
Only one thing do thou ask of the Lord.
Grace to go forward wherever He guide thee,
Simply believing the truth of His word."
~ Author unknown ~

"He may make me feel desolate, make my spirits sink, hide my future from me, still He knows what He is about." ~ John Henry Newman ~

"Give me my scallop shell of quiet,
My staff of faith to walk upon,
My scrip of joy, immortal diet,
My bottle of salvation,
my gown of glory, hope's true gage
And thus I'll take my pilgrimage."

"No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God."
~ Luke 9:62 ~
