Sabbath Keeping

~ West Virginia hills ~
"I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth. He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber. Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand. The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night. The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul. The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore." 

"Time is a cruel thief to rob us of our former selves. We lose as much to life as we do to death."
~ Elizabeth Forsythe Hailey, A Woman of Independent Means ~

"Old Time, in whose banks we deposit our notes
Is a miser who always wants guineas for groats;
He keeps all his customers still in arrears
By lending them minutes and charging them years."
~ Oliver Wendell Holmes ~

"Time is the coin of your life.  It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent.  Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you."  ~ Carl Sandburg ~

"Time is a great teacher, 
but unfortunately it kills all its pupils."  

"Clocks slay time... time is dead as long as it is being clicked off by little wheels; only when the clock stops does time come to life."  ~ William Faulkner ~

"As if you could kill time without injuring eternity."
~ Henry David Thoreau, "Economy," Walden, 1854 ~

"You must have been warned against letting the golden hours slip by; but some of them are golden only because we let them slip by."  ~ James Matthew Barrie ~

"The great French Marshall Lyautey once asked his gardener to plant a tree. The gardener objected that the tree was slow growing and would not reach maturity for 100 years. The Marshall replied, "In that case, there is no time to lose; plant it this afternoon!" 
~ John F. Kennedy ~

"Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, 
and your government when it deserves it."
"As the hand is made for holding and the eye for seeing, thou hast fashioned me for joy. Share with me the vision that shall find it everywhere: in the wild violet's beauty; in the lark's melody; in the face of a steadfast man; in a child's smile; in a mother's love; in the purity of Jesus." ~ Gaelic Prayer ~

"When people go through something rough in life, they say, "I'm taking it one day at a time." Yes, so is everybody. Because that's how time works." ~ Hannibal Buress ~

"Sometimes you count the days, other times you weigh them." 
~ unknown ~

"...but your time is always ready."

  1. Hello Sandra and Dave:
    And, always on TIME we have 'Sabbath Keeping' to make sure that every moment is precious.

  2. Beautiful post for a beautiful Sabbath. Blessings, K

  3. When we've been here ten thousand years
    Bright shining as the sun.
    We've no less days to sing God's praise
    Than when we've first begun.

    Now THAT is a time schedule I'll be happy to keep - time is fleeting in this life - some moments so sweet we want to make them last and some moments break our hearts - even those soon pass - Thank you Sandra - bless y'all this Sunday

  4. "A thousand years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night."
    Psalm 90:4
