Sabbath Keeping

"Their hands are on what is evil, to do it well. 
The prince and the judge ask for a bribe, 
and the great man utters the evil desire of his soul; 
thus they weave it together." 

"What we weave in time we will wear in eternity." ~ unknown ~
"We sleep but the loom of life never stops, and the pattern which was weaving when the sun went down is weaving when it comes up in the morning." ~ Henry Ward Beecher ~
"Oh what a tangled web we weave,
When first we practice to deceive."
"Marriage is an authentic weaving together of families, of two souls with their individual fates and destinies - of time and eternity - everyday life married to the timeless mysteries of the soul." ~ Thomas More
"Each person has his own safe place - running, painting, swimming, fishing, weaving. The activity itself is less important than the act of drawing on your own resources." ~ Barbara Gordon
"Do you not know that there comes a midnight hour when every one has to throw off his mask? Do you believe that life will always let itself be mocked.? Do you think you can slip away a little before midnight in order to avoid this? Or are you not terrified by it? I have seen men in real life who so long deceived others that at last their true nature could not reveal itself...In every many there is something which to a certain degree prevents him from becoming perfectly transparent to himself, and this may be the case in so high a degree he may be so inexplicably woven into relationships of life which extend far beyond himself that he almost cannot reveal himself. But he who cannot reveal himself cannot love, and he who cannot love is the most unhappy man of all." ~ Soren Kierkegaard ~
"My life is but a weaving
Between my Lord and me;
I cannot choose the colors
He worketh steadily.

Oftimes He weaveth sorrow
And I, in foolish pride,
Forgets He sees the upper
And I, the underside.

Not til the loom is silent
And the shuttles cease to fly,
Shall God unroll the canvas
And explain the reason why.

The dark threads are as needful
In the weaver's skillful hand,
As the threads of gold and silver
In the pattern He has planned."
"He who is false to the present duty breaks a thread in the loom, and you will see the effects when the weaving of a lifetime is unraveled." 
~ William Ellery Channing

"You are therefore no longer mere foreigners or persons 
excluded from civil rights. 
On the contrary you share citizenship with God's people 
and are members of His family. You are a building which has been 
reared on the foundation of the Apostles and Prophets, 
the cornerstone being Christ Jesus Himself, 
in union with whom the whole fabric, 
fitted and closely joined together, 
is growing so as to form a holy sanctuary in the Lord; 
in whom you also are being built up together to become 
a fixed abode for God through the Spirit." 

If you'd like a name added to the prayer list, please let me know and give me your e-address. Names will be kept for one week, then begins anew. Around the world, people are praying.

  4. These sayings apply to the news on today's TV. It is so awful that the Children of Okla had no shelter built into the School. I am so outraged that the Mayor or who ever gives these contracts to the contractors,
    did not include a shelter. My goodness that is Dust bowl country, Have we learned nothing?. There that's off my chest.Big hug to you.

  5. Yes, Karen, and may my heart listen diligently!

    Nancy, you're welcome and thanks for stopping by.

    Geri, she was added for this post.

    Yvonne, it's certainly horrid and grips the heart mightily.
