Sabbath Keeping

 ~ spring "worm" moon ~
"There is a time for everything, 
and a season for every activity under the heavens..."

"It's spring fever... You don't quite know what it is you DO want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache,you want it so!" ~ Mark Twain ~

"All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost; 
the old that is strong does not wither, deep roots are not reached by the frost. 
From the ashes a fire shall be woken, a light from the shadows shall spring; 
renewed shall be blade that was broken, the crownless again shall be king."

"The day the Lord created hope was probably the same day he created Spring."
~ Bern Williams ~

"Spring is when you feel like whistling even with a shoe full of slush." 
~ Doug Larson ~

"If there comes a little thaw,
Still the air is chill and raw,
Here and there a patch of snow,
Dirtier than the ground below,
Dribbles down a marshy flood;
Ankle-deep you stick in mud.
In the meadows while you sing,
This is Spring."

"A little madness in the Spring is wholesome even for the King." ~ Emily Dickinson ~

"Winter is on my head but eternal Spring is in my heart." 

"Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems." ~ Rainer Maria Rilke ~
"In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt." 

"No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn."  ~ Hal Borland ~

"In the Spring a livelier iris changes on the burnish'd dove; In the Spring a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love." ~ Alfred, Lord Tennyson ~

 "For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; 
The flowers appear on the earth; 
the time of the singing of birds is come, 
and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land; 
The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, 
and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell."

Soli Deo Gloria,


  1. Lovely post! Spring is here! (At least in Hungary...:o) )

  2. Carrie shared this today, Sandara ~

    The first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another.
    The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month.
    ~Henry Van Dyke

    Hope you are both doing well, prayers continue to lift for you.

    Have a beautiful week ~
    TTFN ~

  3. Spring, even the word sounds warm and sunny. Happy Spring.

  4. I prayed for you and Dave this morning.


  5. I especially like that Solomon passage! Happy spring to you! My spring post will be up tomorrow, well, kind of one is up today sort of.

  6. Happy Spring! My daffodils are blooming and we are suppose to have snow on Thurs:(

  7. Lovely. Spring around here is squishy with a wan lemony sun, but sunshine it is, and the frogs croaking loudly tell us it is really spring time. New things are coming, Praise God!

  8. Not sure which Linda is on the list but Skip and I appreciate any and all prayer support - we continue to lift y'all up to the Throne of Heaven at every opportunity - prayer is a blessed opportunity.

  9. Beautiful words to ponder, Sandra... I know spring is almost here and it's so wonderful!
