Sabbath Keeping

 ~ growing apples ~
 "He led them forth by the right way."  
~ Psalm 107:7 ~
"...By honor and dishonor, by evil report and by good report, by plenty and by poverty, by joy and by distress, by persecution and by peace, by all these things are the lives of your souls maintained, and by each of these are you helped on your way. Oh, believer, do not think that your sorrows are out of God's plan; they are necessary parts of it." ~ Charles Spurgeon ~

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

"Love begins by taking care of the closest ones - the ones at Home." ~ Mother Teresa ~

"O let my trembling soul be still,
And wait Thy wise, Thy holy Will?
I cannot, Lord, Thy purpose see,
Yet all is well since ruled by Thee."
~ Charles Spurgeon ~

“Don’t let the excitement of youth cause you to forget your Creator. Honor him in your youth before you grow old and say, ‘Life is not pleasant anymore.’ Remember him before the light of the sun, moon, and stars is dim to your old eyes, and rain clouds continually darken your sky. Remember him before your legs—the guards of your house—start to tremble; and before your shoulders—the strong men—stoop. Remember him before your teeth—your few remaining servants—stop grinding; and before your eyes—the women looking through the windows—see dimly.” (NLT) ~ Ecclesiastes 12:1-3 ~


“And don’t forget to do good and to share with those in need. 
These are the sacrifices that please God.” (NLT)  
~ Hebrews 13:16 ~

  2. I'm not sure it would feel like Sunday anymore without your Sabbath Keepings.

    They are always such a blessing.

    Have a great week, Sandra.

  6. Nothing is wasted in God's economy - which is the total opposite of our nation's economy but I won't go there right now - stand in awe of Him and knowing full well He disciplines those He loves and walks with us through the fires. Bless you Sandra and your particular fire walk this week!
