Sabbath Keeping

"If you have raced with men on foot and they have worn you out,
how can you compete with horses? If you stumble in safe country,
how will you manage in the thickets by the Jordan?"
"Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there." ~ Mark Twain ~
"All it takes
is all you've got."
~ Marc Davis ~
"I had as many doubts as anyone else. Standing on the starting line, we're all cowards."
~ Alberto Salazar ~
"Run when you can, 
walk if you have to,
crawl if you must; 
just never give up."
"Listen to your body. Do not be a blind and deaf tenant." ~ Dr. George Sheehan ~
"I don't have to run faster than the bear. I just have to run faster than you." ~ Dave Bricker while on an Alaskan bear watching trip ~
"I feel His pleasure when I run."
 Chinese Missionary who 
died in the Weihsien Interment Camp

"Having a truth faith is the most difficult thing in the world. Many will try and take it from you."
~ Steve Prefontaine ~

"Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses,
let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles
And let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us."

If you have a name for the prayer list, please let me know. Names will be kept for one week, then we start anew. Around the world, people are praying.

  1. Where do you get these great quotes? Yes, I too was happy for
    the owner, being a Kentucky man,
    at last a Derby. That horse was 3 yrs old, and 2 lengths is way out there.I do believe GOD must love horses and Dogs better than people.
    People must disgust him at times..
    Love and enjoy a Beautiful Day.

  2. Wonderful reminders and comforting thoughts today.

    I feel to be a friend with this sentence:

    "Run when you can,
    walk if you have to,
    crawl if you must;
    just never give up."
    ~ Dean Karnazes ~

  7. Dori, those are wise words for all of us but especially a farmer.
