Sabbath Keeping

"Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for Him."

"The more we let God take us over, the more truly ourselves we become - because He made us. He invented us. He invented all the different people that you and I were intended to be...It is when I turn to Christ, when I give up myself to His personality, that I first begin to have a real personality of my own." ~ C. S. Lewis ~
"Start by doing what's necessary,
Then do what's possible,
and suddenly you are doing the impossible."
"Toto, I have a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore." ~ L. Frank Baum ~
"No, this is not the beginning of a new chapter in my life; this is the beginning of a new book! That first book is already closed, ended, and tossed into the seas; this new book is newly opened, has just begun! Look, it is the first page! And it is a beautiful one!" ~ C. Joy Bell C. ~
"You raze the old to raise the new."
~ Justina Chen, North of Beautiful ~
"I guess it's going to have to hurt, I guess I'm going to have to cry, and let go of some things I've loved to get to the other side. I guess it's going to break me down, like fallin' when you try to fly, Sad but sometimes moving on with the rest of your life starts with goodbye."
~ Carrie Underwood ~
"A bridge of silver wings stretches from the dead ashes of an unforgiving nightmare to the jeweled vision of a life started anew." ~ Aberjhani, The River of Winged Dreams ~
"Realize that if a door closed, it's because what was behind it wasn't meant for you."
~ Mandy Hale ~
"I often sit and watch the leaves change colour and fall from the tree. to me, those leaves signify the constant change in our own lives and all he beautiful colours signify our own emotions. As the leaves, change and fall from the tree's with such grace and gentleness, they're reminding us to be gently with ourselves as this chapter ends and the next journey begins in our lives."
~ Annalee Hopkins ~
"There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth...not going all the way, and not starting." ~ Buddha ~
"The secret to living the life of your dreams is to start living the life of your dreams today, in every little way you possibly can." ~ Mike Dooley ~
"The beginning is the most important part of the work." ~ Plato ~
"Do what you can
With what you have
Where you are."
"We must always change, renew, rejuvenate ourselves, otherwise we harden." ~ Goethe ~
"The indispensable first step to getting the things you want out of life is this: 
Decide what you want." ~ Ben Stein ~
"If all you can do is crawl, 
start crawling."
~ Rumi ~
"He has drawn back, only in order to have enough room for his leap." ~ Nietzche ~
"Some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next. Delicious ambiguity." ~ Gilda Radner ~

"And they sang a new song..."

My apologies, I cannot take names for this week's Prayer Keeping.

  1. oh dear friend = love the quote theme today - indeed I'm realizing this is not just a change in my life but a nearly new life I'm living - scary but challenging - grateful for what has gone before but beginning to be eager for what might come next - LOVE the Gilda Radner quote -

  2. I love the quote from St Francis of Assisi! But I do wonder sometimes if I'll ever get beyond the "necessary."
    Hope you are well :)

  3. It is so good to see a post up from you today. I look forward to when you return on a regular basis.
