Sabbath Keeping

~ my small flock of wool sheep ~
"Do not remember the former things; 
neither consider the things of old.
Behold, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs forth; 
do you not perceive and know it 
and will you not give heed to it?
I will even make a way in the wilderness 
and rivers in the desert."

"One day spent with someone you love can change everything." ~ Mitch Albom
"If you don't like something, change it. 
If you can't change it, change your attitude."
"Fashion changes but style endures." ~ Coco Chanel ~
"God grant me the courage to accept the things I cannot change, 
the courage to change the things I can, 
and the wisdom to know the difference." 
"There are women who make things better...simply by showing up. There are women who make things happen. There are women who make their way. There are women who make a difference. And women who make us smile. There are women of wit and wisdom who -through strength and courage- make it through. There are women who change the world everyday...Women like you."  ~ Ashley Rice ~
"I can't understand why people are frightened of new ideas. 
I'm frightened of old ones." 
~ John Cage
"To improve is to change. To be perfect, is to change often." ~ Winston Churchill ~
"If you really want to do something, you'll find a way. If you don't, you'll find an excuse."
"For the past 33 years, every morning I have looked in the mirror and asked myself, "If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?" And whenever the answer has been 'No' for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something."  ~ Steve Jobs
"When we are no longer able to change a situation,
we are challenged to change ourselves."
"Grief does not change you, Hazel. It reveals you." 
~ John Green, The Fault in Our Stars ~
"If people refuse to look at you in a new light and they can only see you for what you were, only see you for the mistakes you've made, if they don't realize that you are not your mistakes, then they have to go." ~ Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free ~ 
"If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change." 
~ Wayne Dyer
"Everyone thinks of changing the world, 
but no one looks at changing himself." 
~ Tolstoy
"If there is no struggle, there is no progress." ~ Frederick Douglass

"All that you touch
You Change.

All that you Change
Changes you.

The only lasting truth
is Change.

is Change."

"All great change in America, begins at the dinner table." ~ Ronald Reagan ~
"Those who cannot change their minds, cannot change anything." 
~ George Bernard Shaw ~
"We are products of our past but we don't have to be prisoners of it." 
~ Rick Warren
"Here's to the crazy ones. the misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no great respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only ting you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do." ~ Apple Inc. ~
"I alone cannot change the world,
but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples."
"Therefore, dear Sir, love your solitude and try to sing out with the pain it causes you. For those who are near you are far away...and this shows that the space around you is beginning to grow happy about your growth, in which of course you can't take anyone with you, and be gentle with those who stay behind; be confident and calm in front of them and don't torment them with your doubts and don't frighten them with your faith or joy, which they wouldn't be able to comprehend. Seek out some simple and true feeling of what you have in common with them, which doesn't necessarily have to alter when you yourself change again and again; when you see them, love life in a form that is not your own and be indulgent toward those who are growing old, who are afraid of the aloneness that you trust...and don't expect any understanding; but believe in a love that is being stored up for you like an inheritance, and have faith that in this love there is a strength and a blessing so large that you can travel as far as you wish without having to step outside it." ~ Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet ~

"He who was seated on the throne said, "I am making everything new!" 
Then he said, "Write this down for these words are trustworthy and true."

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.
