Sabbath Keeping

~ praise to God ~
"How many are your works, O Lord! 
In wisdom you made them all; 
the earth is full of your creatures."
~ Psalms 104:24 ~

"Christian life means a walking; it goes by steps. There is a straight fence run for us between right and wrong. There is no sitting on that fence. No, only walking, one side or other. You can hardly look across without stepping through." ~ R. W. Barbour ~

"If we only have the will to walk, 
then God is pleased with our stumbles." 
~ C. S. Lewis ~

"Very often a change of self is needed more than a change of scene." ~ A. C. Benson ~

"Christianity is not a theory or speculation, but a life; 
not a philosophy of life, but a living presence." 
~ Samuel Taylor Coleridge ~

"I have a great need for Christ; 
I have a great Christ for my need." 
~ Charles H. Spurgeon ~

"The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. 
It has been found difficult and left untried."
~ G. K. Chesterton ~

"You can give without loving. 
But you cannot love without giving." 

"People need loving the most when they deserve it the least." ~ John Harrison ~

"If you live close to God
And His infinite grace,
You don't have to tell;
It shows on your face." 
~ unknown ~

"I am willing..." ~ Matthew 8:3 ~

  1. Hello Sandra and Dave:
    We are sure that we are not alone in appreciating the time and trouble which you take each Sunday to share these thoughts and ideas.

    They help to make a Sunday different from the rest of the week which is, we feel, as it should be.

  3. I was so glad to see your Sabbath Keeping appear on my list of updated blogs - always good thoughts, often a smile and the special connection of one walker on the road of Christianity to another walker - same road different places and same goal. Bless you - we are praying.

  10. I'm not a Christian but can relate to the message of many of these quotes. When it comes to Sabbath keeping, I will add one of one of my favorite writers: Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel.

    He said, 'The Sabbath is a Palace in Time'. It's all about building the Shabbat attitude for rest and resouling and then putting gentle structures in place to facilitate that rest.

    Blessings,
    This Good Life
