Sabbath Keeping

 ~ Roselawn, in Princeton, WV ~
" life they were loved and gracious, and in death they were not parted. They were swifter than eagles, there were stronger than lions."  ~ II Samuel 1:23 ~

"Death is no more than passing from one room into another. But there's a difference for me, you know. Because in that other room I shall be able to see."
~ Helen Keller ~

"Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal." 
~ From a headstone in Ireland ~

"A human life is a story told by God." ~ Hans Christian Anderson ~

"It is the will of God and Nature that these mortal bodies be laid aside, when the soul is to enter into real life; 'tis rather an embrio state, a preparation for living; a man is not completely born until he be dead: Why then should we grieve that a new child is born among the immortals?"  
~ Benjamin Franklin ~

"One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it's worth watching." ~ unknown ~

"Some people are so afraid to die that they never begin to live."
~ Henry Van Dyke ~

"The day which we fear as our last is but the birthday of eternity."
~ Lucius Annaeus Seneca ~

"Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints." ~ Psalms 116-15 ~

Blessings ~ William Ray Berry ~ Christs' saints ~ life and then death ~ eternity ~ love ~ memories ~

Dei Gratia,


  1. It is truly the most reliable part of life - we will all experience death and Praise God those of us who have accepted His gift of salvation will awake to eternal life. soli deo gloria - glory to God alone.

  2. Sandra - the quote by Henry Van Dyke rings true with me today. Lovely post for this Sunday Sabbath Day. Thank you. Have a wonderful week. Take care, from KY.
