Sabbath Keeping

~ Sadie, waiting patiently ~

"Wait and trust the LORD,
Don't be upset wen others get rich
or when someone else's plans succeed.
Don't get angry.
Don't be upset; it only leads to trouble."

"It's not what we take up but what we give up that makes us rich." 
"True contentment is a thing as active as agriculture. It is the power of getting out of any situation all that there is in it. It is arduous and it is rare." ~ G. K. Chesterton ~
"Contentment is natural wealth
Luxury is artificial poverty."
~ unknown ~
"The world is full of people looking for spectacular happiness while they snub contentment. 
~ Doug Larson
"You never know what is enough unless you know what is more than enough." 
~ William Blake ~
"We may pass violets looking for roses.
We may contentment looking for victory."
"If you look for perfection, you'll never be content." ~ Leo Tolstoy ~
"What day is it?" asked Pooh.
"It's today," squeaked Piglet.
"My favorite day," said Pooh."
"Help me to have what I want." "Help me to want what I have." ~ unknown ~
"Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for." ~ Epicurus
"You act like it's you against the world but it's really just you against yourself." 
~ unknown ~
"Content makes poor men rich.
Discontent makes rich men poor."
"Comparison is the thief of joy." ~ Teddy Roosevelt ~

"For I have learned in whatsoever state I am, 
therewith to be content."

If you'd like a name added to the prayer list, please let me know.

  14. Anita, thank you; it makes the long hard work worthwhile, knowing people appreciate Sabbath Keeping posts.

    Vic, thank you; I've been know to get out of bed to do them when my memory has forsaken me during the day.

    Donna, you're welcome.

    Kathy, is that the George MacDonald story?

    CG, yes, Sadie is a Ridgeback and the second who has owned us/me. She's a lovely, and loving, girl, much more so than the first who was all business when it came to protecting me. sigh. I wish Sadie had a bit of that grrrr in her.

    Grace, Sadie is a lovebug!

    Constance, just now getting around to reading/responding and yes, this Sunday your names will be added to the prayer list.

    Dori, these are good quotes, aren't they and I, too, like the Tolstoy quote.

    Elizabeth, thank you for visiting Thistle Cove Farm and for your comment.

    Pam, personality wise, Sadie and Sam are the sweetest dogs who've ever loved me. Not a mean bone in their bodies, unless one tries to take the other's treat -smile-. Sometimes I wish they both had a little grrrr in them when strangers come.

    Lisa, I'd rather be content than happy.

    Mildred, Sadie is a sweet, sweet girl. Thank you for your prayers; greatly appreciated!
