Sabbath Keeping

"Woe to him who builds his house by unrighteousness
And his chambers by injustice,
Who uses his neighbor's service without wages

And gives him nothing for his work."

Prayer Keeping ~ Maxine ~ Miki and Timi ~ Tiffany ~ Sandra ~


  1. Work is a 4 letter word but it's a good one. :) Thank you for sharing all this excellent advice. Happy Sunday!

  2. Hi Sandra!
    I hope you've had a restful Sunday. I thought of you the other night when I wore my flannel nightgown to bed. I remember my granny saying that she like pajamas because nightgowns got all twisty when she tossed and turned. I thought that was funny because I always wore nightgowns then. I think they take some getting used to, so I'm aiming to get good at nightgown wearing again! Ha!
    You're so kind to extend your compassion upon me as I was so sick over Christmas. I am on the mend now, but still needing a nap in the afternoon. I put a big down comforter on the sofa to encourage snoozing.
    Stay warm and cozy this evening, friend.

  3. Thank you for these wonderful verses and quotes. Would you please put my daughter Tiffany on your prayer list and she just found out she is pregnant and is not feeling well at all. Thank you and God bless!

  4. I enjoy the work you put into these posts, they always give me pause.

  5. I would greatly appreciate it if you would add my mom, Veronica, to your prayer list. She is in poor health. Thank you!

  6. splendid choices today -we ARE our choices

  7. Good words. Work is so important in our lives. Sometimes when the mind is sad or overloaded, working with the hands gives such relief. God bless you.

  8. I would like to pray for a lot of people, I just don't know their names. People I see who don't smile and have sad eyes. People who have children that shouldn't . People who can't find jobs and people who can that won't. People who deserve better and people who don't.
    I would like prayer for everyone to pray for someone everyday that they don't know, someone they saw, someone that passed them briefly.
    I am here today because of people who have prayed for me . I hate to think that there are people that know one has prayed for them.
    Please put people " you don't know" on your list.
    Thank you


Thank you for visiting Thistle Cove Farm; may God bless you, yours and the work of your hands and heart. My goal is to respond, here, to your comments although it may take a while.
