Thursday Pearls

 
 Painting by:  Alfred Carlton Smith
“‎What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and work flow.” 

~ Martin Luther

~
 "Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest."

~ Ecclesiastes 9:10, KJV

Happy Thursday, sweet friends...

This is so true! I have been learning lately to "Work Willingly, Not Wearily" and this goes right along with it! Thanks so much!

Sweet Kelly-Anne! Such a lovely quote today and went right along with some thoughts the Lord has been giving me! I am so sorry to be so long in visiting you...it seems I am so far behind on everything. I am so thankful to see that I can subscribe via email, as I don't seem to be able to keep up with just following by google. God bless you, sweet friend, and may you always remain as sweet and precious as you are right now. I hope all is well with you and your family.
