Thursday Pearls

  "How can one family affect anything?
One person battling away to put selfish interests aside,
to put other people before herself or himself, even for a fraction of time, day by day, how could that help?
. . . One family and the children of that family can do marvellous things to affect the world or devastating things to destroy it."
-Edith Schaeffer

"Train up a child in the way he should go:  and when he is old, he will not depart from it."  ~ Proverbs 22:6

The power of the family is exactly what the enemy is tearing down and destroying, piece by piece. There will be no peace until the family is put back in its rightful place by the hearts of the people. Your family is a delight, and truly making a difference, that resounds around the world. May the Lord continue to bless you in all you do for HIM!

You do come across such wonderful quotes, Kelly-Anne. What a thoughtful post! May the Lord truly help us all to be of the building-and-affecting-for-good kind of people. How wonderful it is to belong to our Saviour and to have His strength for each step of the journey He has called us to. We truly are blessed! Hugs, Camille

You have a very good point in this post, Kelly-Anne! Often we hear on the news about the terrible things perpetrated by just one person. If only each one of us were as strong a force for good, as those people are for evil.

What a great reminder! Family is so very important. We always say a family that prays together stays together.
I just enjoy your Thursday Pearls...
I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving Kelly-Anne!
