Sabbath Keeping

~ Sam, 'herding' sheep ~
 "Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the Lord is good: his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations." ~ Psalms 100:1-5 ~

"If God asks that you bend, bend and do not complain.  He is making you more flexible, and for this be thankful."  ~ Terri Guillemets ~
"Let God's promises shine on your problems."

"Young man, young man, your arm's too short to box with God."

~ James Weldon Johnson ~

"God's gifts put man's best dreams to shame."

Every evening I turn my worries over to God.  He's going to be up all night anyway.  
~ Mary C. Crowley ~

"God loves each of us as if there were only one of us."  

"A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, 'darkness' on the walls of his cell."
~ C.S. Lewis, The Problem of Pain ~

"The feeling remains that God is on the journey, too."  

"Weave in faith and God will find the thread."  ~ Author Unknown ~

"He who kneels before God can stand before anyone."   
~ Author Unknown ~

"When we lose God, it is not God who is lost."  ~ Author Unknown ~

"Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice. Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."
~ Philippians 4: 4-7 ~

I'm breaking with tradition and ceasing "blessings" on Sabbath Keeping. Now, there will be a "Prayer Keeping" section; if you'd like your name, or initial, added to this list, please let me know either by commenting on this post or by a private e-mail. God knows you by name and knows your needs so just your name, added to each Sabbath Keeping post, will let me and others remember you in prayer. I still keep my private prayer list but will not post your name, or initial, publicly unless you request.

Prayer Keeping ~  Roy ~ Tonya ~ Dave ~ me ~

Soli Deo Gloria,


  1. Beautiful verses and quotes for this day. Have a wonderful week.

  2. Ah, Corrie Ten Boom, how I love her.


  3. Comments so truthful! So edifying! Why don't we hear more of this sort of thing! Everyone should read your blog :D I just bought one of Corrie's books. I've never had the guts to read it before; I will endeavor to do so now.
    We had a wonderful sermon today: the cross is the motivating factor for the authentic church. It reminds us who we are in Him, what we were, where we're going, and it makes us see the importance of that message reaching the multitudes who don't know Christ.
    Keep talking Sandra. People hear.

  4. you are so wonderful to be so concerned about others while going through a difficult time yourself. God bless you both.

  5. You both remain in my thoughts and prayers.

  6. We continue to be blessed by knowing you and Dave - praying for you is an honor. Kneeling before God is the one part of life I enjoy on my knees (getting back up requires some faith and mercy!)

  7. Please add James and Carl to your list of folks needing prayers. Like your Dave, they have a tough road ahead of them. Fondly, Cat

  8. Good read girl!

    I sure will pray for Roy, Tonya, Dave and you. God knows those needs!

    God bless and have a beautiful day! place!

  9. Beautiful post, Sandra! And I love the picture of Sam- he's a big help, I'm sure.

  10. This from a dear saint who is going through her own trials. I pray for Dave everyday, and will not stop until he is cancer free..

  11. Just popped in for a sec. Have a sick dog, 15 and I think he is losing it. Beautiful verse.


  12. Loving you both and praying for you both from afar.
