Sabbath Keeping

~ Shell Island, SC ~
"It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, 
because his compassions fail not. 
They are new every morning: 
great is thy faithfulness."
~ Lamentations 3:22-23 ~

"Faithfulness lives where love is stronger than instinct."
~ Paul Carvel, Belgian writer ~

"Money may be the husk of many things, but not the kernel. It brings you food, but not appetite; medicine, but not health; acquaintances, but not friends; servants, but not faithfulness; days of joy but not peace and happiness." ~ Henrik Ibsen ~

"By faithfulness we are collected and wound up into unity within ourselves,
whereas we had been scattered abroad in multiplicity." 

"Destiny fits, always,
There's no such thing
as a life not meant
for the person living it."
Louis Simpson in Chimneys ~

"Great is thy faithfulness, O God my Father..."
~ Israel Houghton and New Breed ~ Fernando Ortega ~

"Confidentiality is a virtue of the loyal, as loyalty is the virtue of faithfulness." and "Your faithfulness makes you trustworthy to God." ~ Edwin Louis Cole

"Marriage has a unique place because it speaks of an absolute faithfulness, a covenant between radically different persons, male and female; and so it echoes the absolute covenant of God with his chosen, a covenant between radically different partners." ~ Rowan D. Williams ~

"Faith is the virtue by which, clinging-to the faithfulness of God, we lean upon him, so that we may obtain what he gives to us." ~ William Ames ~

"I do not pray for success. I ask for faithfulness."

"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, 
goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. 
Against such things there is no law." ~ Galatians 5:22 ~

  1. I enjoyed each one, Sandra. These are the kinds of passages that have always gathered me in.

    I will not be commenting much after Tues for a few days. Pre-posted a few shares.

    Hope Dave is doing well & all my love to you both.

    Have a beautiful week, sweet friend ~
    TTFN ~

  2. Beautiful post, I enjoyed my time here today. Thank you.

  3. Faithfulness - an underrated virtue in the modern world - few things as sustaining as a faithful friend -
    we are praying for y'all.

  4. Lovely Post with some great quotes

  5. These quotes are awesome! I have a book about Saint Augustine that I ordered coming soon, anxious to read it!I'm going to post the money one on my FB page! XO

  6. I was going to use this same verse on my blog yesterday but the Lord directed me to Isaiah instead. Love the picture and the quotes and of course, Galatians!!! Enjoy your day!

  7. I always enjoy the time I spend here. Thanks for another wonderful post. Hugs, LJ

  8. A great collection of quotes.

    I've never been to Shell Island SC. It looks pretty!

  9. Wonderful quotes, Sandra. Thanks for sharing and stopping by CITexas Gal to see the Butterflies. Sometimes a quote or poem says it all. I appreciate that!

    This one perfect for my Ancestry collection:
    Destiny fits, always,
    There's no such thing
    as a life not meant
    for the person living it.


  10. Oh Sandra Sweetie...
    How beautiful, peaceful and loving it is here today. I so enjoyed the passages and the time you put into putting them together to touch each of our hearts.

    I have enjoyed my visit today. Immensely. Hope you are having a glorious day. Thank you for the prayers for Marydon. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

  11. Just had to drop by and let you know I'm thinking of you. I had no idea that your husband was suffering with cancer. My prayers are with you!

    Thanks for your comment on my blog today. I'm just like you! If someone comments on my blog, I try to repay the kindness with a visit and a comment on their blog.

    Hope you're enjoying a good day.

  12. Beautiful sentiments here. Have never been to Shell Island. So nice to hear from you today.


  13. Being a compulsive quote-collector, I was happy to find this post with great specimens. I love the Augustine quote, the Ames and the Simpson ones especially. Thank you for posting all these nourishing truths.


Thank you for visiting Thistle Cove Farm; may God bless you, yours and the work of your hands and heart. My goal is to respond, here, to your comments although it may take a while.
