Sabbath Keeping

"Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord,
but those who act faithfully are his delight."

"If you tell the truth
you don't have to remember anything."
~ Mark Twain ~

"If you shut up truth and bury it under the ground, it will but grow, and gather to itself such explosive power that the day it bursts through it will blow up everything in its way."
~ Emile Zola, attributed, Dreyfus: His Life and Letters? ~

"Three things cannot be long hidden: 
the sun, the moon, the truth."
~ Buddha ~

"Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom."
~ Thomas Jefferson ~

"Truth will ultimately prevail where there is pains taken to bring it to light." ~ George Washington ~

"A lie can travel halfway around the world 
while the truth is putting on its shoes."
~ Mark Twain ~

"Rather let us suffer for speaking the truth,
than that truth should suffer for want of speaking."
~ Eliza Cook, Diamond Dust ~

"Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth."
~ Henry David Thoreau ~

"Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing ever happened."
~ Winston S. Churchill ~

"I've always followed my father's advice: he told me, first to always keep my word and, second, to never insult anybody unintentionally. If I insult you, you can be sure I intend to. And, third, he told me not to go around looking for trouble."
~ John Wayne ~

"In a time of deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act."
~ George Orwell ~

"There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way and not starting." ~ Buddha ~

"Truth exists; only lies are invented." 

"Then you will know the truth
and the truth will set you free."
~ John 8:31

Prayer Keeping ~ 13 Hours in Benghazi ~ Jim ~ Brad ~ Sandra ~

  1. I like these quotes, but the one by George Orwell really caught my attention. These days telling the truth is getting more and more dangerous. I hope I have the courage to be faithful to the truth and the Truth.
    I went back and saw the post about your cemetery visit. What a beautiful place. I continue to lift you up in my prayers Sandra.

  2. Great post!
    Hope you have a great week and that you stay warm!

  3. I liked . . .
    Nothing else better than TRUTH . . .

    "Three things cannot be long hidden:
    the sun, the moon, the truth."
    ~ Buddha ~

  4. Good Morning Sandra, great quotes about truth and I have always liked the one by Mark Twain.
    Love your photo. Stay warm and enjoy a great week. xo

  5. So many claim to be trying to find the truth, when in fact they're going to great lengths to avoid Him.

    That's my quote, ha ha!

    Loved these!

  6. It's quite fitting having a post about the truth when little miss "What Difference At This Point Does It Make" may be one click away from wearing an orange jumpsuit. Well done. ~:)

  7. Love Mark Twain and Downton Abby. I am taking the phone off the hook Sunday at 8PM. Can't believe I have gotten so hooked on this show.
    About TRUTH wish the Politicians could spell it.

  8. Dear Sandra, today I MUST say: I LOVE this header! The red sky, the snow, the lonely spiritual atmosphere and the great authentic text beneath this photo! Amazing!!

    Greetings from the winter-forest in Bavaria from Dori

  9. Deborah, I'm so glad you enjoy Sabbath Keeping and thanks for letting me know, it's an encouragement. I enjoy finding topics, then quotes as it encourages me first.

    Hi Annie, it's been a great week, spent SAFELY, thank God! Snowing here, about 8 inches, and more expected to make one foot plus when over. Be safe out there!

    Hi Lynne, "I am the way, the truth and the life. No man cometh to the Father except through me." Jesus

    Hi Celeste, I am staying warm, thank you. Since finding out the furnace was broken, fixing it and fixing the inside insulation problem, this old house stays toasty! What a blessing! Many thanks for visiting and your kindness toward me.

    Hi Lisa, your quote is WONDERFUL, thank you!

    Sparky, works for me! Did you see where Albright, the old trout, said if women didn't support Hill there was a special place in hell for them? IDIOT

    Hi Ngoc, thank you for visiting Thistle Cove Farm.

    Yvonne, it's almost...almost...enough to make me get subscription t.v. again. I bought Season 6 DVD instead .

    Hi Dori, it makes me happy you like the winter's a beautiful gift from God to be able to live in this valley. My challenge to you...come up with 30 words that describe YOU.


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.
