Sabbath Keepingg,

 ~ foggy mountain road ~
"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater. So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." 
 "God is subtle but He is not malicious." ~ Albert Einstein ~

 "Our Lord did not ask us to give up the things of earth, but to exchange them for better things."
~ Fulton J. Sheen ~

"The more we depend on God the more dependable we find He is." ~ Cliff Richard ~

"If God is your partner, make your plans BIG!" 

"God does not come to us in nicely defined, rationally explained, thought categories.  God does not fit Himself into our theological text books.  The Hebrew God breaks all the rules.  He is near, yet transcendent; clothed in human form, yet holy; more terrifying than can be imagined, yet compassionate; invisible, yet revealed; judging, yet merciful, sovereign, yet humble.  No matter where you look, God breaks the molds." ~ Skip Moen ~

"Man finds it hard to get what he wants, 
because he does not want the best. 
God finds it hard to give, 
because He would give the best and the man will not take it." 

To say that I am made in the image of God is to say that love is the reason for my existence, for God is love." ~ Thomas A Kempis~

"Most of us wait until we're in trouble, and then we pray like ens. Wonder what would happen if, some morning, we'd wake up and say, "Anything I can do for You today, Lord?" " ~ Burton Hillis ~

"Is your place a small place? Tend it with care; He set you there. Is your place a large place? Guard it with care! He set you there. Whate'er your place, it is Not yours alone, but his Who set you there."
~ John Oxenham ~

 "For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: 
now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known." 

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.
