Sabbath Keeping


"I will listen to what God the Lord will say; 
he promises peace to his people."
~ Psalms 85:8

"There is a voice, "a still, small voice" of love,
Heard from above,
But not amidst the din of earthly sounds,
Which here confounds;
By those withdrawn apart it best is heard,
And peace, sweet peace, breaths in each gentle word."
~ Anonymous ~

"Speak, Lord, for thy servant heareth, Grant us ears to hear, eyes to see, wills to obey, hearts to love, then declare what thou wilt, reveal what thou wilt, command what thou wilt, demand what thou wilt--Amen.   ~ Christina G. Rossetti ~

"Oh God, give me grace for this day. 
Not for a lifetime, nor for next week, 
Nor for tomorrow, just for this day. 
Direct my thoughts and bless them, 
Direct my work and bless it. 
Direct the things I say, and give them blessing too. 
Direct everything that I think and speak and do, 
So that for this one day, just this one day, 
I have the gift of grace that comes From your presence. Amen." 
~ Marjorie Holmes

"Jesus answered him, "If a man loves me, he will keep my word,
and my Father will love him, and we will come to him
and make our home with him.
He who does not love me does not keep my words;
and the word which you hear is not mine but the Father's who sent me."
~ John 14: 23-24

  2. Excellent selections today! I had one of those moments the other day when something I guess I knew for years finally made sense and stuck! I was reading "Jesus Calling" and it explained the difference between "faith" and "trust". Faith is hope for the future...trust is for the day at hand. Duh. I have found that I refer to that thought many times in a day. I tell myself, "I choose to trust." Hoping Spring is bringing you a sense of continuation, renewal and the comfort that only God can give. Love you!

  7. Hello Sandra:
    A Monday morning following the most wonderful Sunday, the next being Palm Sunday, of course. As always your scripture texts and carefully chosen words inspire.

    You are in our thoughts at all times and we are so heartened to know that you are...coping.
