Sabbath Keeping

~ Sam P. Spade, Secret Agent...he can keep a secret ~
"Everyone enjoys a fitting reply; 
it is wonderful to say the right thing at the right time!"

"Between stimulus and response is a space. In that space lies our power and freedom to choose our response. In those choices lie our growth and our happiness." 
~ Victor Frankl ~
"I don't want to be married just to be married. I can't think of anything lonelier than spending the rest of my life with someone I can't talk to, or worse, someone I can't be silent with."  ~ Mary Ann Shaffer
"I love to talk about nothing. 
It's the only thing I know anything about." 
"I am a master of logic and a powerfully convincing debater. In fact, against my better judgement, I can talk myself out of doing anything." ~ Jarod Kintz ~
"Great people talk about ideas, average people talk about things, and small people talk about wine."  ~ Fran Lebowitz ~
"Talk, talk, talk: the utter and heartbreaking stupidity of words." ~ William Faulkner ~
"Verbal hemophilia. 
Why can't I clot?"
"The real pacificus is he who promotes peace, not he who gasses about it." 
~ C. S. Lewis ~
"They never taste who always drink;
They always talk who never think."
"Most of the successful people I've known are the ones who do more listening than talking."  ~ Bernard M. Baruch ~
"The word 'listen' contain the same letters as the word 'silent'". 
"There is so much good in the worst of us, 
and so much bad in the best of us,
that it hardly becomes any of us to talk about the rest of us." 
~ G. W. Cooke ~
"When you have nothing to say, say nothing." ~ Charles Caleb Colton ~
"Live your truth.Express your love.
Share your enthusiasm.
Take actions towards your dreams.
Walk your talk.
Dance and sing to your music. 
Embrace your blessings.
Make today worth remembering.

"I mean talk. Never forget that God is your friend. And like all friends, He longs to hear what's been happening in your life. Good or bad, whether it's been full of sorrow or anger, and even when you're questioning why terrible things have to happen. 
So I talk with him."  ~ Nicolas Sparks ~

"Let your conversation be gracious and attractive 
so that you will have the right response for everyone.

If you'd like a name added to the prayer list, please let me know. Names will be kept for one week; around the world, people are praying.

  1. I hope that you have a great week.

    I love all of these quotes!

  2. Remembering you in prayer, Sandra. Love the photo of Sam.

  3. Glad to have found you again ~ Love your dog photo and Thistle Cove Farm still sounds like a wonderful place ~ Happy Week to you ^_^ carol

  4. I am so sorry about the loss of your husband. I don't know what happened but my heart is breaking for you. Please know that you will be in my prayers.

    Much love and big hugs to you. xxoo

  5. I pray you'll have an Indian summer week, Sandra! Stay warm and face the sun.

  6. Great and funny Oscar Wilde quote.


  7. Please add my husband, Royce to the list of those to pray for. Surgery on the 15th of this month to have right side of the thyroid taken out due to having a large mass in it. Thank you and appreciate you adding him to the prayer list.

  8. Sandra- You always find the most wonderful quotes and verses for your posts. Blessings to you and Happy Sunday night- xo Diana

  9. I love that bright, happy dog face!

  10. Dear Thistle, first I have to say, that this dog SAM has a very true and dear face, looking full of empathy and love to the photograper!

    Then I want to say also this: you always have such wonderful inspirations to choose the quotes and poverbs for "Sabbath-Keeping"!
    Great as always!

  11. "Why can't I clot?" Perfect! My daddy used to say, "Just think! Just think!"

    Nice what Nicholas Sparks said. I don't reckon I've ever felt that God was saying to me, "Would you please just shut up!" I'm so grateful for that.

  12. I always look forward to reading these posts of yours.

    God Bless!
