Sabbath Keeping in Romania

~ scythe sharpening ~
"Then saith he unto his disciples, 
The harvest truly is plenteous,
but the labourers are few; 
Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest,
that he will send forth labourers into his harvest."
~ Matthew 9:37-38 ~
~ starting the swing ~
"But when the fruit is brought forth, 
immediately he putteth in the sickle, 
because the harvest is come."
~ Mark 4:29 ~
~ middle of swing ~
"Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food 
will also supply and increase your store of seed and 
will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness."
~ 2 Corinthians 9:10 ~
 ~ swing completed ~
"Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time
we will reap a harvest if we do not give up."
~ Galatians 6:9 ~
Blessings ~ harvest ~ sharpened blade ~ laborers ~ strength to do the work He has set before us ~

  6. What a special Sabbath Keeping this is. Your trip has been amazing. My fave is that the spinner thinks your spinning is not handmade, but "with a machine." If she only knew....

    Beautiful images, Sandra.

    Traveling Mercies to you,
    Dawn

  7. We forget the actual harvesting is a back-breaking job whether it is harvesting wheat, crops, or souls. Back-breaking it may be, but rewarding beyond measure, especially when one considers eternity.

  9. Goodness~ that is so much work, Sandra! I remember when I was a little girl my daddy use to keep the brush next to the wooods cut back with a sickle... it used to wear me out just watching him!
    Love the scripture!

  11. Hi Sandra,

    I was thinking of you while I was falling asleep last night and just wanted to say I'm praying you had a safe trip home and are safely snuggled in the US now. Can't wait for more updates! :)
