Sabbath Keeping

~ Sam P. Spade, Secret Agent and Gypsy Rose Lee ~
"The Lord is my light and my salvation
Whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the strength of my life,
Of whom shall I be afraid?"
"No one ever told me that grief felt so like fear." ~ C. S. Lewis
"If fear is cultivated, it will become stronger,
if faith is cultivated, it will achieve mastery."
~ John Paul Jones
"Do one thing every day that scares you." 
"The more you can increase fear of drugs and crime, welfare mothers and aliens, the more you control all the people." ~ Noam Chomsky
"Courage is fear holding on a minute longer." 
"I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear." 
~ Nelson Mandela
"Faith activates God 
Fear activates the enemy." 
"Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything - all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment of failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important." ~ Steve Jobs ~
"I have not give you the spirit of fear 
but of power and love and a sound mind."

    Good Sunday Evening, Sandra. Glad to hear you had a nice day to be outdoors. Thank you for your prayers for John. I love the photo of your kitty and dog. How precious. Hope you have a restful evening and a nice week ahead.

  2. Hallo, dear Thistle, nice to find you and your inspirations here now! Lovely photo!! I'll read the sentences later, First I have to go to bed, it's very late here now. Have a good and peaceful 2.Advent-Night!

  3. You've been reading my P mail again (prayer - quick sendings to Abba Father) - fear is a bugaboo of mine - will I make it through this time of grief and ever find myself again? Will the money situation resolve so I can stay in my house? will the sun come up tomorrow? oh that's right - worry about today for tomorrow has worry enough of it's own - thanks for the reminders - Fear Not wasn't a request - it is our instruction and command from the Only One who knows what is coming next.

  4. As always, I found things in your Sabbath post to help me. Today's is especially good as I can let fear grow in my heart...that waiting for the other shoe to drop state of mind. Thank you.

  8. Excellent quotes to contemplate, especially in a time when it's so easy to be fearful about the state of our nation and where we're heading. It all boils down to whether or not we trust God, doesn't it?
