Sabbath Keeping

 ~ view from my window ~
"Train up a child in the way he should go; 
even when he is old he will not depart from it."

"Your children need your presence more than your presents." ~ unknown

"There are no seven wonders of the world in the eyes of a child.  
There are seven million."
~ Walt Streightiff ~

"Children are the hands by which we take hold of heaven." 

"Children are great imitators.
So give them something great to imitate."
~ unknown ~

 "There can be no keener revelation of a society's soul 
than the way in which it treats its children."

"Children are the living messages we send to a time we will not see."
~ John W. Whitehead ~

 "Why is it that a child's death amounts to a tragedy, but the death of millions is merely a statistic?"
~ Patrick McDonald ~

"If you haven't time to respond to a tug at your pants leg, 
your schedule is too crowded."

"Every child you encounter is a divine appointment." 

"The only thing worth stealing is a kiss from a sleeping child."  ~ Joe Houldsworth ~
"Children are likely to live up to what you believe of them."
~ Lady Bird Johnson ~

"While we try to teach our children all about life,
Our children teach us what life is all about."
~ Angela Schwindt ~



"It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men."

"If I could relive my life, I would devote my entire ministry 
to reaching children for God!"

“See that you do not despise one of these little ones. 
For I tell you that in heaven their angels always see
the face of my Father who is in heaven." 

If you'd like your name added to this Prayer Keeping list or my private list, please let me know and, please, don't hesitate to remind me, lest I forget.

  4. It's become such a trend to make a mess of your kids, as exampled in public continually by parents who may or man not have been raised the same way. The Bible has a lot to say about raising kids that is very valuable. I believe children have it very hard nowadays and will not know it till they are grown.
