Sabbath Keeping

~ going home ~
"When I am afraid, I will trust in you." 
~ Psalms 56:3 ~

"Father in Heaven, when the thought of Thee wakes in our hearts, let it not awaken like a frightened bird that flies about in dismay, but like a child waking from its sleep with a heavenly smile."
~ Soren Kierkegaard ~
"The Servant: 
Lord, what wilt Thou teach me?

Eternal Wisdom: 
I will teach thee to die and will teach thee to live. 
I will teach thee to receive Me Lovingly, 
and will teach thee to praise Me lovingly. 
Behold, this is what properly belongs to thee.

The Servant: 
Eternal Wisdom, if I had the power to fulfil my wishes, 
I know not whether, in this temporal state, 
I ought to wish anything else, as to doctrine, 
than how to die to myself and all the world, 
how to live wholly for Thee. 
But Lord, dost Thou mean a spiritual dying or a bodily dying?

Eternal Wisdom: 
I mean both one and the other.

The Servant: 
What need have I, Lord, of being taught how to die bodily? 
Surely it teaches itself when it comes.

Eternal Wisdom: 
He who puts his teaching off till then, 
will find it too late."

 "Dreams are illustrations...from the book your soul is writing about you." 

"My times are in thy hand."
My God, I wish them there.
My life, my friends, my soul, I leave
Entirely to your care."
~ Unknown ~

"We all have our time machines. Some take us back, they're called memories. Some take us forward, they're called dreams." ~ Jeremy Irons ~

"I think we dream so we don't have to be apart so long. If we're in each other's dreams, we can be together all the time." ~ Calvin & Hobbs ~

"Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, 
for tomorrow will worry about itself. 
Each day has enough trouble of its own."

  4. Even though I don't usually comment on Sabbath Keeping.....I absolutely love it. It is always meaningingful to me and I look forward to it every week. Have a week full of blessings!

  5. Comforting and thought provoking. Thank-you.

    Thank you, Sandra!

  7. Always enjoy your Sabbath Keeping posts... was surprisingly comforted by Calvin and Hobbes.
    Thank you.

  8. Sandra - I haven't forgotten you, and I know I owe you a letter big time. It was so good to hear from you in the Winter. I'm online for a short time today, but don't know when I will be back online. Things are going well at Hidden Acres Farm, and I'm glad that Spring has come. My favorite quote of your Sabbath Keeping is the last one from Matthew - I sorely need to put this into practice everyday. I hope you and yours are well and hanging in there. Take care, and know I think of you all often and you're in my prayers. Bye - from Casey Co KY.

  9. Matthew 6:34 is a reassurance I treasure - I don't know about tomorrow, I just live from day to day;
    I don't borrow from it's sunshine,
    For it's skies may turn to gray.
    I don't worry o'er the future, For I know what Jesus said;
    And today I'll walk beside Him, For He knows what lies ahead

  10. You're in my heart and prayers. Hugs!

  11. Beautiful words and verses! Blessings!

  12. Just getting here this morning! But, Sabbath Keeping is every day, right?!
    xo, misha
