Sabbath Keeping


"I am the Lord, God of all mankind.
Is anything too hard for me?"

"All things are possible to him who believes. 
They are less difficult to him who hopes. 
They are easier to him who loves, 
and still more easy to him who perseveres 
in the practice of these three virtues."

"All that is good, all that is true, all that is beautiful, all that is beneficent, be it great or small, be it perfect or fragmentary, natural as well as supernatural, moral as well as material, comes from God." ~ John Henry Newman ~

"God provides in amazing ways to get the work done.
He can provide what you need too." ~ Karen Moore ~

"Miracles are a retelling in small letters of the very same story which is written across the whole world in letters too large for some of us to see."
~ C. S. Lewis ~

"We believe that the work of regeneration, conversion, sanctification and faith, is not an act of man's free will and power, but of the mighty, efficacious and irresistible grace of God." ~ Charles H. Spurgeon ~

"Sometimes we are our own worst obstacle." ~ Sandra ~

"At strategic moments God again and again manifested Himself to men by miracles so they had outward, confirming evidence that the words they heard from God's servants were true." ~ Billy Graham ~

"Where God guides,
He provides."
~ Karen Moore ~ 

"Our Father in heaven.
Reveal who You are.
Set the world right:
Do what's best -
as above, so below.
Keep us alive with 
three square meals.
Keep us forgiven with you
and forgiving others.
Keep us safe from
ourselves and the Devil.
You're in charge!
You can do anything You want!
You're ablaze n beauty!
Yes. Yes. Yes."

Please pray for ~ Nancy ~ Alisha ~ Sandra (recovering slowly) ~

  2. That's certainly a freewheeling interpretation of the Lord's Prayer.

  8. By the way, that was an observation - not a criticism.
    Hope you are soon back to 100% health, Sandra.

  12. It's such a beautiful time of year, hope that you are up and about by now Sandra. I have to get to DR. for a few shots. Hate to sit in the office waiting with so many sick people. I use those hand wipes at all the stores
    and if I take MR. Bennie we take his blankly to sit on. Here's hoping you
    are bright eyed and bushy tailed today. yvonne

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.
