Sabbath Keeping

 ~ Kensington Gardens, London ~
 "Our Father, who are in heaven..."

"My grandfather always said that living is like licking honey off a thorn." ~ Louis Adamic ~

"The Church is looking for better methods; God is looking for better men." ... "What the Church needs to-day is not more machinery or better, not new organizations or more and novel methods, but men whom the Holy Ghost can use -- men of prayer, men mighty in prayer. The Holy Ghost does not flow through methods, but through men. He does not come on machinery, but on men. He does not annoint plans, but men -- men of prayer." ~ E. M. Bounds ~

" I don't know who my grandfather was: I am much more concerned to know what his grandson will be."
~ Abraham Lincoln ~

"When I was a kid, I said to my father one afternoon, 'Daddy, will you take me to the zoo?' He answered, 'If the zoo wants you, let them come and get you."' ~ Jerry Lewis ~

"When Charles first saw our child Mary, he said all the proper things for a new father. He looked upon the poor little red thing and blurted, 'She's more beautiful than the Brooklyn Bridge."'  ~ Helen Hayes ~

You say, "my father wasn't all he could have been; he did...thus and so... Or, my mother wasn't all she could have been; she did...thus and so... ." For your sake, not theirs, please forgive them for real and imagined wrong doings. I beg you, permit the healing to begin and become the parent to your children you wanted your parents to be to you. Be the generation that stops "the sins of the fathers...". ~ skb ~

"There's one sad truth in life I've found
While journeying east and west -
The only folks we really wound
Are those we love the best.
We flatter those we scarcely know,
We please the fleeting guest,
And deal full many a thoughtless blow
To those who love us best."

"A man's children and his garden both reflect the amount of weeding done during the growing season."
~ author unknown ~

A Godly father is "prophet, priest, protector, provider".

"Covenant to Pray For America..." 



"Honor thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee." ~ Exodus 20:12 ~


Blessings ~ Our Father ~ fathers ~ Daddy ~ Mom ~ prayer ~ Godly men and women ~


Dei Gratia,
Sandra

  4. Sandra - thanks for visiting my blog - and I love yours! I believe I like the quote by Ella Wheeler Wilcox the best from yesterday's post - I know she is talking about me in that quote; we only hurt the ones we love - so true. Take care, from KY.

    Hi Kathy, thanks for visiting and you're right, the poem is too true.

    Hi Nancy, thank you, it spoke to my heart as well.

    Hi Barbara, you're so kind! Thanks for visiting but gee, you've just gotta stop posting chocolate and peanut butter or I can't visit you any more. I'm gaining weight just staring at the screen!
