Sabbath Keeping

 ~ God tends His flock ~
"The Spirit of God hath made me, and the
breath of the Almighty hath given me life."  

"Thus am I, a feather on the breath of God. "  ~ Hildegard of Bingen ~

"Fear less, hope more; eat less, chew more; whine less, breathe more; talk less, say more; hate less, love more; and all good things are yours." ~ Swedish Proverb ~

"The best things in life are nearest:  Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you.  Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life's plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life." ~ Robert Louis Stevenson ~

~ Amy Grant ~

"...and human hands can't serve his needs--for he has no needs. 
He himself gives life and breath to everything, 
and he satisfies every need." 

Blessings ~ Christ, the breath of heaven ~ new year, new beginnings ~ life's plain common work ~ a feather on the breath of God ~

Soli Deo Gloria,


  1. God bless you this new year.
    Said a prayer for hubby and you.

  2. Sending wishes for a year full of blessings from above.

  3. You have a beautiful blog and I love the photo of the view from your window. Interesting you title your weekly post of quotes "Sabbath Keeping" - this is an area the Lord has asked me to work on this year. I look forward to visiting you again for inspiration.

  4. Beautiful (and wise) words to keep close at heart, Sandra!!
    Thinking of you today!

  5. Sweet and true. I am praying for you both as we begin a new year.


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.
