Sabbath Keeping

"Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign;
Behold a virgin shall conceive,
and bear a son,
and shall call his name Immanuel."

"Be a sinner and sin strongly, but more strongly have faith and rejoice in Christ." 
~ Martin Luther ~
"If you will read history, you will find that the Christians who did most for the present world, were precisely those who thought most of the next. It is since Christians have largely ceased to think of the other world that they have become so ineffective in this." ~ C. S. Lewis ~
"Words which do not give the light of Christ,
increase the darkness."
"The Bible tells us that Jesus Christ came to do three things. He came to have my past forgiven, you get a purpose for living and a home in heaven." ~ Rick Warren ~
"There isn't enough room in your mind for both worry and faith.
You have to choose which one will live there."
~ unknown
"A Christian is nothing but a sinful man who has put himself to school for Christ for the honest purpose of becoming better." ~ Henry Ward Beecher
"I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen; not only because I see it, but because by it, I see everything else." ~ C. S. Lewis
"Be good, 
keep your feet dry,
your eyes open,
your heart at peace, 
and your soul in the joy of Christ."
"The Bible is the cradle wherein Christ is laid." ~ Martin Luther ~
"Want to keep Christ in Christmas? Feed the hungry, clothe the naked, forgive the guilty, welcome the unwanted, care for the ill, love your enemies, and do unto others as you would have done unto you." ~ Steve Maraboli
"Where does your security lie? Is God your refuge, your hiding place, your stronghold, your shepherd, your counselor, your friend, your redeemer, your saviour, your guide? If He is, you don't need to search any further for security." ~ Elisabeth Elliott ~
"Each of us is an innkeeper who decides if there is room for Jesus." ~ Neal A. Maxwell ~
"When we discern that people are not going on spiritually and allow the discernment to turn to criticism, we block our way to God. God never gives us discernment in order that we may criticize, but that we may intercede." ~ Oswald Chambers
"The Spirit is the pledge of the abiding presence of Jesus, and of our fellowship with him. He imparts true knowledge of his being and of his will. He teaches us and reminds us of all that Christ said on earth. He guides us into all truth so that we are not without knowledge of Christ and the gifts which God has given us in him. The gift which the Holy Spirit creates in us is not uncertainty, but assurance and discernment. Thus we are enabled to walk in the Spirit and to walk in assurance." ~ Dietrich Bonhoeffer ~
"He is your friend, who pushes you nearer to God." ~ Abraham Kuyper


"I am the way, the truth and the life.
No one comes to the Father 
except through me."

  5. Annie, amen indeed!

    Sparky, you're added and God knows; all I need is to pray.

    LindaSue, thank you; it's a labor of love.

    Dewena, that's good news; I'm glad it speaks to your heart.

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.
