Sabbath Keeping

~ HayJ, American Curly horse x Percheron ~
"He counts the number of the stars
He calls them all by name."

"When it is dark enough, you can see the stars." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~
"I will love the light for it shows me the way
yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars."
"Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars and change the world."
~ Harriet Tubman ~
"Yours is the light by which my spirit's born:
-you are my sun, my moon, and all my stars."
"Moonlight drowns out all but the brightest stars.
~ J. R. R. Tolkien ~
"Silently, one by one, in the infinite meadows of heaven,
Blossomed the lovely stars, the forget-me-nots of the angels."
"Shoot for the moon and if you miss, you'll still be among the stars." ~ unknown ~
"Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in perfect light;
I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night."
"For my part, I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream." ~ Vincent Van Gogh ~
"God writes the Gospel not in the Bible alone, but also on trees and in the flowers and clouds and stars." ~ Martin Luther ~
"Keep your eyes on the stars and your feet on the ground." ~ Teddy Roosevelt
"Jump into the middle of things, get your hands dirty, fall flat on your face, and then reach for the stars." ~ Ben Stein
"Two things fill the mind with ever-increasing wonder and awe, the more often and the more intensely the mind of thought is drawn to them: the starry heavens above me and the moral law within me." ~ Immanuel Kant ~
"stars are the scars of the universe." ~ Ricky Maye
"What wretched poverty of language! To compare stars to diamonds!"
~ Gustave Flaubert ~
"Art is everywhere you look for it, hail the twinkling stars for they are God's careless splatters." ~ El Greco ~
"Just remember this, my girl, when you look up in the sky you can see the stars and still not see the light." ~ Jack Tempchin ~

"so that you may be blameless and pure,
children of God who are faultless in a crooked and perverse generation.
among whom you shine like stars in the world."

  1. The stars are so compelling to poets and thinkers, they make us dream and feel and believe. Thank God for stars!

  2. Oh Sandra you Sunday posts are always so inspiring I love quotes. Keep your eyes on the stars and your feet on the ground." ~ Teddy Roosevelt ~ yup always liked that one. Hug B

  3. Beautiful post, Sandra. I love the photo. Thinking of you and wishing you a blessed day.

  4. Nice quotes. Whenever someone mentions stars, I tend to think of that Rosemary Clooney song "Hey There" ( ). Such a pretty song.
    Hope you had a nice weekend. Today is our 35th! I can't believe hubby's put up with me that long. *lol* ~:)

  5. One look up to the sky at night, pondering the immensity of the stars, and no sane person could ever doubt the existence of God.

    Thank you for the continued prayers. We are experience some good times right now. Savoring...

  6. Thank you, Thistle, star in a dark world, glimming with the light of Love.
