Sabbath Keeping

~ old walnut tree on the farm, photo by Gina ~
"You shall love the Lord your God 
with all your heart
and with all your soul

and with all your might."


"Lord, deliver me from the small loyalties of habit or tradition that would keep me from larger loyalties of the spirit. Let me so incline myself to you that your presence in my life determines both what I think and what I do. Through Jesus, who understood the deeper meaning of freedom. Amen." ~ John Killinger in A Devotional Guide to the Gospels ~
"Never allow someone to be your priority while allowing yourself to be their option." 
~ unknown ~
"Love comes when manipulation stops; when you think more about the other person than about his or her reactions to you. When you dare to reveal yourself fully. When you dare to be vulnerable."
~ Dr. Joyce Brothers ~
"Out of clutter, find simplicity.
From discord, find harmony.
In the middle of difficulty, lies opportunity."
"Do what you feel in your heart to be right for you will be criticized anyway." 
~ Eleanor Roosevelt ~
"Actions express priorities." ~ Gandhi ~
"Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind." ~ Dr. Seuss ~
"Frankly, too many women treat their husbands as accessories and not priorities."
~ Dr. Laura Schlessinger ~

"The key is not to prioritize what's on your schedule but to schedule your priorities." 
~ Steven Covey ~
"Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength." ~ unknown ~
"To succeed today, you have to set priorities. You have to decide what you stand for."
~ Lee Iacocca ~
"Good things happen when you get your priorities straight." ~ Scott Caan ~
"Decide what you want. 
Decide what you are willing to exchange for it.
Establish your priorities and go to work."
"Refuse to fight small battles with petty people. Your life is bigger and better than that." 
~ unknown ~
"I believe there are three keys to success. For me it is keeping my priorities in order: It's my faith and my family, and then the business." ~ Kathy Ireland ~
"Living with the immediacy of death helps you sort your priorities. It helps you live a less trivial life." ~ Sogyal Rinpoche ~
"You can either focus on what is tearing you apart
or you can focus on what is holding you together."
~ unknown ~
"To change your life, you need to change your priorities." ~ Zahid Abbas  ~

"But seek first His kingdom 
and His righteousness 
and all these things shall be given unto you as well."

If you'd like a name added to the prayer list, please let me know. Around the world, people are praying.

  1. I just wanted to stop back and let you know that yes this was a Fresian horse. His owner told us he was imported from Norway and his name was Victor. He was very sweet and allowed the boys who are only 7 and 9 to sit on him.

  2. H.L. Hunt! Oh my goodness, my mother, when she was a young woman (early twenties?) met him and was acquainted with him for a while. We always bought Hunt's catsup after that, never Heinz!
