Sabbath Keeping

 ~ Maiden Spring Road ~
"...there is a future for the man of peace." ~ Psalms 37:37 ~

If you want to make peace, you don't talk to your friends. You talk to your enemies."

"There was never a good war or a bad peace." ~ Benjamin Franklin ~

"They shall beat their swords into ploughshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more." ~ Isaiah 11:4 ~

"If there is to be peace in the world,
There must be peace in the nations.

If there is to be peace in the nations,
There must be peace in the cities.

If there is to be peace in the cities,
There must be peace between neighbors.

If there is to be peace between neighbors,
There must be peace in the home.

If there is to be peace in the home,
There must be peace in the heart."
      ~ Lao Tzu (570-490 B.C.) ~

"I was once asked why I don't participate in anti-war demonstrations. I said that I will never do that, but as soon as you have a pro-peace rally, I'll be there." ~ Mother Theresa (1910-1997) ~

"O Lord, calm the waves of this heart, calm its tempests. Calm thyself, O my soul, so that the divine can act in thee. Calm thyself, O my soul, so that God is able to repose in thee, so that his peace may cover thee. Yes, Father in heaven, often have we found that the world cannot give us peace, O but make us feel that thou art able to give peace, let us know the truth of thy promise: that the whole world may not be able to take away thy peace." ~ Soren Kierkegaard ~

"In the heart's depths a peace serene and holy
Abides, and when pain seems to have its will,
Or we despair - oh, may that peace rise slowly,
Stronger than agony, and we be still."

"Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way."
~ II Thessalonians 3:16 ~

 Blessings ~ God's peace ~

Grace and Peace,


  1. Hi Sandra, I enjoyed these verses and quotes tonight. I had a friend to share the words to "His Eye is on the Sparrow" with me - very comforting words - keeping you in my heart and prayers tonight.

  2. Praying for you and yours - peace and contentment - two of the gifts we normally request of the Lord - for ourselves and others. His eye is on the sparrow was a great choice by Mildred to mention - we are part of His plan. Thank you for the beautiful reminders -

  3. Yes, I am praying for you both, and we know true peace comes only from our Heavenly Father, and He gives His peace even in the midst of tragedy and turmoil~ lovely and peaceful post. Thank-you Sister.

  4. Good Morning Sister Sandra

    "There was never a good war or a bad peace." ~ Benjamin Franklin ~ Ben must be the most quoted person that ever lived! :-)

    I prayed for you this morning.



Thank you for visiting Thistle Cove Farm; may God bless you, yours and the work of your hands and heart. My goal is to respond, here, to your comments although it may take a while.
