Sabbath Keeping

"But as for me, I watch in hope for the Lord,
I wait for God my Savior;
my God will hear me."

"May you live all the days of your life." ~ Jonathan Swift ~

"The truth is, of course, 
that what one regards as interruptions, 
are precisely one's life."
~ C. S. Lewis

"Be bold and mighty forces will come to your aid. In the past, whenever I had fallen short in almost any undertaking, it was seldom because I had tried and failed. It was because I had let fear of failure stop me from trying at all."
~ Arthur Gordon ~

"May you have the hindsight to know where you've been
the foresight to know where you're going
and the insight to know when you're gone too far."

"The only real battle in life is between hanging on and letting go."
~ Shannon L. Alder ~

"Recipe for longevity:
leave the table hungry.
leave the bed sleepy.
leave the table thirsty."

"May there be sprig enough in your life
to outlast the winters;
May there be music enough to lift your
spirits whenever needed;
May you be gentle enough to comfort those
who are hurting,
But revolutionary enough to bring Jesus to
whose who need Him now.
May there always be laughter in your home
And may God always hold you in the palm of His hand."

"Smiling at death seems like a pretty bold act.
And so I smile like a damned fool."
~ Emm Cole, Keeping Merminia ~

"If you obey all the rules,
you'll miss all the fun."
~ Audrey Hepburn

"Don't you ever get the feeling that all your life is going by and you're no taking advantage of it? Do you realize you've lived nearly half the time you have to live already." ~ Ernest Hemingway, The Sun Also Rises ~

"There are only two kinds of people: those who say to God, "Thy will be done", and those to whom God says, "All right, then, have it your way."
~ C. S. Lewis ~

"There'll be two dates on your tombstone, and all your friends will read 'em, but all that's gonna matter is that little dash between 'em." ~ Kevin Welch ~

"Intentional living is the art of making our own choices 
before others' choices make us."
~ Richie Norton

"Don't be afraid your life will end
Be afraid it will never begin."
~ Grace Hansen ~

"We're terminal from our first breath. It's not a matter of if, it's a matter of when. As much as possible, as God leads, each day make fearless choices that will impact eternity. Give compliments lavishly; bless others; pray for strangers. Opportunities come and go so, starting with the next one, do something about it. Tomorrow will never come so today, live, really live, and live it large!

"Each day we are becoming a creature of splendid glory
or one of unthinkable horror."
~ C. S. Lewis ~

"I have come that you may have life more abundantly."

Please pray for ~ folks, especially military, who are alone this Christ season. Better yet, invite someone to share a meal, take someone to lunch or for coffee. Be the Jesus in someone's life in the next eight days. ~
