Sabbath Keeping


"Where there is no vision, the people perish."

"Blessed is he who has learned to admire but not envy,
to follow but not imitate,
to praise but not flatter,
and to lead but not manipulate."

"The first great gift we can bestow on others is a good example."
~ Thomas Morell ~

"To handle yourself, use your head.
To handle others, use your heart."

"Keep your fears to yourself, but share your courage with others."
~ Robert Louis Stevenson ~

"You manage things;
you lead people."

"I must follow the people. 
Am I not their leader?

"A leader is one who knows the way, 
goes the way, 
and shows the way."

"We must truly serve those whom we appear to command; we must bear with their imperfections, correct them with gentleness and patience, and lead them in the way to heaven."
~ Francois Fenelon ~

"A man who wants to lead the orchestra 
must turn his back on the crowd." 

"Don't follow the crowd
let the crowd follow you."

"When people talk, listen completely."

"The important things is this: to be able to give up in any given moment all that we are for what we can become." ~ DeSeaux ~

"You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand."
~ Woodrow Wilson ~

"In everything set them an example by doing what is good.
In your teaching, show integrity, seriousness 
and soundness of speech."

Keep in prayer ~ Vicki's family ~ Bonnie's family ~ Diana and her Hero ~ Anita ~ Julie and Nancy ~ Ronnie ~ Patty and family ~ Jim ~ Steve ~ Sandra ~

  1. Hemingway's advice is very good, but I find it to be nearly impossible to accomplish. Lord, help!
