Sabbath Keeping

(so beautiful, had to use it again)

"I will lift up my eyes unto the hills
from whence comes my help?
My help comes from the Lord,
Who made heaven and earth."
~ Psalm 121:1-2 ~

"We rise by lifting others."

"No one has ever become poor by giving." ~ Anne Frank ~

"The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well." ~ Emerson ~

"No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another." ~ Charles Dickens ~

"Helping someone might not change the world but it may change the world for that person."

"We can't help everyone
But everyone can help someone."
~ Ronald Reagan ~

"Power is the ability to do good things for others."  ~ Brooke Astor ~

"You have not lived today unless you can do something for someone who can never repay you."
~ John Bunyan ~

"A kind gesture can reach a wound only compassion can heal." ~ Steve Maraboli ~

"The best antidote I know for worry is work. The best cure for weariness is the challenge of helping someone who is even more tired. One of the great ironies of life is this: He or she who serves almost always benefits more than he or she who is served." ~ Gordon B. Hinckley ~

"Give your hands to serve
and your hearts to love."
~ Mother Teresa

"Never underestimate the difference YOU can make in the lives of others. Step forward, reach out and help. This week reach to someone who might need a lift." ~ Pablo ~

"I don't want to live in the kind of world where we don't look out for each other. Not just the people that are close to us, but anybody who needs a helping hand. I can't change the way anybody else thinks, or what they choose to do, but I can do my bit." ~ Charles de Lint ~

"Doing nothing for others is the undoing of ourselves." ~ Horace Mann ~

"You have to life a person up before you can really put them in their place." ~ Criss Jami ~

"Non nobis solum nati sumus."
~ Cicero ~

"We are hard pressed on every side, yet not crushed; 
we are perplexed, but not in despair;
persecuted, but not forsaken;
struck down, but not destroyed."
~ 2 Corinthians 4:8-9 ~

"And if you give even a cup of cold water 
to one of the least of my followers,
you will surely be rewarded."

Keep in prayer - WV citizens and helpers as they recover from the devastating flood ~ 

For the small community of Bergoo, Webster County, WV, near the head waters of the Elk River, I am collecting water and cleaning supplies. If you'd like to help, please send me an e-mail.


  1. The situation in West Virginia is dreadful - glad to know you've found a way to let people help.
    And on a more cheerful note, I love your line about the horse and the rope - never heard that one before, but it sure rings true for me!
