Sabbath Keeping

"Be very careful never to forget what you have seen the Lord do for you. Do not let these things escape from your mind as long as you live! And be sure to pass them on to your children and grandchildren."

"Unless the Lord builds the house,
its builders labor in vain."

"Be an aware parent. Identify your child's unique gifts and encourage those." ~ Linda Wakefield Kelley ~

"This is all the inheritance I give to my dear family. The religion of Christ will give them on which will make them rich indeed." ~ Patrick Henry ~

"Remember that your ultimate goal is for your children 
to grow up secure in your love, 
strong in their faith, 
and with sound character."

"The family should be a closely knit group. The home should be a self-contained shelter of security; a kind of school where life's basic lessons are taught; and a kind of church where God is honored, a place where wholesome recreation and simple pleasures are enjoyed." ~ Billy Graham ~

"What God is to the world, 
parents are to their children."
~ Philo

"No man hath a right to claim God as his Father, unless he feeleth in his soul, and believeth, solemnly, through the faith of God's election, that he has been adopted into the one family of which is in heaven and earth, and that he has been regenerated or born again." ~ Charles H. Spurgeon ~

"The cure of crime is not the electric chair
but the high chair."

"Where will our country find leaders with integrity, courage, strength--all the family values--in ten, twenty, or thirty years? The answer is that you are teaching them, loving them, and raising them right now." ~ Barbara Bush ~

"A sentence from Psalm 101 has been both challenging and convicting for me: 'I will walk in my house with blameless heart' (Psalm 101:2). When God speaks to be about being more loving, this verse reminds me to make application  in my family first--and then to others. It forces me to ask, 'Am I more spiritual, more loving, or more fun somewhere else? Who gets my best--my family or others?" ~ Jean Fleming ~

"I praise loudly,
I blame softly."
~ Catherine the Great ~

"What higher motive could there be for the husband to love his wife? By loving her as Christ loved the church, he honors Christ in the most direct and graphic way. He becomes the embodiment of Christ's love to his own wife, a living example to the rest of his family, a channel of blessing to his entire household, and a powerful testimony to a watching world."
~ John MacArthur ~

"Let each one of you love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband. Children, obey your parents in the Lord...Fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord."

    Hi Sandra, Nice to see an update from you. Praying for you and wishing you a nice evening.

  3. My favorite is the Jean Fleming quote. :) Blessings on your Sunday!

  4. Love each of these quotes! Sending you hugs, love and prayers.

  5. Today was my granddaughter's 3rd birthday and as I just read these inspirational quotes, I was so grateful that our son and daughter-in-law are characterized by them. The last time they were here visiting I told them that I had figured out how they became such great parents. I think they remembered their parents and then did exactly the opposite! They laughed but I truly think that the young marrieds small group they have been in ever since they were married, watching other, older couples as they raised small children, has been invaluable as mentors for them, and now I see them being that to younger couples that join their Wednesday night Bible classes. A torch being passed on.

  6. Great collection of quotes. I especially like the one by Patrick Henry and the one by Billy Graham. The home is SO important. Blessings to you Sandra.

  7. A stable family life is so very important. Love all of these quotes. Hope you have a wonderful week.

  8. joining you in praying for the loved ones of the slain marines.

  9. Hi Sandra, always enjoy your quotes and these are some of the best shared. Joining you in prayers. Wishing you a blessed week. cm

  10. I've enjoyed catching up on your blog posts from the last several weeks. And some of them I have purposely read twice...let the words soak in a bit. We are still in a housing transition. Praying we both can move forward soon!

  11. More great quotes! Thanks for the edification, dear Sandra! Blessings on you, sweet lady!
