Sabbath Keeping

~ full moon rising ~
"He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth."
~ Isaiah 53:7 ~

"Help us each other's joys and griefs to share, 
But let us turn to Thee alone in weakness."
~ Anonymous ~
"Go, bury thy sorrow,
The world hath its share
Go, bury it deeply,
Go, hide it with care
Go, buy thy sorrow,
Let others be blest
Go, give them the sunshine,
And tell God the rest."
~ Anonymous ~
"Give us grace and strength to forbear and to persevere...Give us courage and gaiety and the quiet mind, spare to us our friends, soften to us our enemies." ~ Robert Louis Stevenson ~

"Strive to realize a state of inward happiness, 
independent of circumstances."
~ J. P. Greaves ~

"Mine are the heavens and mine is the earth. Mine are the nations, the just are mine and mine the sinners. The angels are mine and the Mother of God and all things are mine; and God himself is mine and all for me, because Christ is mine and all for me. What do you ask then and seek, my soul?"
~ St. John of the Cross ~

"I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength." ~ Philippians 4:12-13 ~

  2. Hello Sandra and Dave:
    The J.P. Greaves quotation is one entirely new to us and is both apt and appropriate for all of our daily lives.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you both at the start of this new week.

  3. '...spare to us our friends, soften to us our enemies...' Thankfully when necessary our friends are blind and our enemies kind... only the Lord can make it so.
