Sabbath Keeping

"My soul is weary with sorrow, 
strengthen me according to your word."
~ Psalm 119:28 ~

"Better lose your life than your soul."
~ Lousia May Alcott ~

"You don't have a soul.
You are a soul.
You have a body."
~ C. S. Lewis

"Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all."
~ Emily Dickinson ~

"Brother Cadfael knew better than to hurry, 
where souls were concerned. 
There was plenty of elbow-room in eternity."
~ Ellis Peters ~

"What can you every really know of other people's souls - 
of their temptations, their opportunities, their struggles? 
One soul in the whole creation you do know; 
and it is the only one whose fate is placed in your hands." 
~ C. S. Lewis

"Faith is the daring of the soul to go farther than it can see." 
~ William Newton Clark

"What soup is to the body
laughter is to the soul."
~ Yiddish proverb ~ 

"The soul should always stand ajar
Ready to welcome the ecstatic experience."
~ Emily Dickinson ~ 

"Love the Lord your God with all your heart 
and with all your soul 
and with all your mind  
and with all your strength." 
~ Mark 12: 30

  2. Lovely thoughts today, Sandra. How are you doing? I think of you often and wish you were closer....but then I would be a pest. :)

  3. Lovely. I often stop by sometimes quietly. Today Geoffrey and I were bringing in wood today. He is well enough and determined enough that with my help it gets done. So many times my mind wonders to you and Dave. And I think "did they share this or that" we are doing that day. And I feel a strong kinship with you as I know now up close and in person the other thoughts you were thinking.

    You are in my prayers.

  4. as always - the BEST quotations - we be souls - yes we are - and the feathered part is singing happy song today! Just had a series of no less than 3 blessings (call to schedule to come help me in the yard - WITH a tractor!, email and text message) from places/people I had NO idea I'd hear from today and feel like piping up "hope springs eternal from God's heart to ours"!
