Sabbath Keeping


"And in every work that he began in the service of the house of God...he did it with all his heart and prospered."

"Coincidence Is When God
Chooses To Remain Anonymous."

"Every failure I've ever had is because I said yes when I should have said no." ~ Moss Hart, paraphrased ~

"Be calm in arguing; 
for fierceness makes error a fault, 
and truth discourtesy; 
calmness is a great advantage."

"A real book is not one that we read 
but one that reads us."
~ W H Auden

"If you would tell me the heart of a man, 
tell me not what he reads 
but what he rereads."

"All men wonder to see water turned into wine. 
Every day the earth's moisture, 
being drawn into the...vine, 
is turned by the grape into wine, 
and no man wonders."

"So absolutely good is truth, 
truth never hurts the teller."

"No one can be wrong with man
and right with God."

"There are three stages in the work of God:
impossible
difficult
done"

"Watch, O Lord, with those who wake, or watch, 
or weep tonight, and give Your angels 
and saints charge over those who sleep. 
Tend Your sick ones, O Lord Christ. 
Rest Your weary ones. 
Bless Your dying ones. 
Sooth Your suffering ones. 
Pity Your afflicted ones. Shield Your joyous ones. 
And all for Your love's sake." ~ St. Francis ~

"I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the all glorious Father, may confer on you the spiritual gifts of wisdom and vision, with the knowledge of Him that they bring. I pray that your inward eyes may be enlightened, so that you may know what is the hope to which He calls you, how rich and glorious is the share He offers you among His people in their inheritance, and how vast are the resources of His power open to us who have faith."

Prayer Keeping ~ each and every one of us ~

  2. What must I do to get my blog listed on your Blogroll? I'm not complaining about being left out, because I don't even *have* a blogroll myself. But I'd like to be included in yours anyway :-)

  8. I usually don't pick a favorite, but this week, I re-read this on many times..."Be calm in arguing;
    for fierceness makes error a fault,
    and truth discourtesy;
    calmness is a great advantage."
    ~ George Herbert ~
    Have a good week!
