"Dear friend, remember it is not hasty reading, but serious meditating upon holy and heavenly truths, that will make them prove sweet and profitable to the soul. It is not the bee's touching of the flower that draws out the sweet substance. Likewise, it is not he that reads most, but he that meditates most, that will prove the choicest, sweetest, wisest and strongest Christian. And be certain that it is not the knowing, nor the talking, nor the reading man, but the doing man, that at last will be found the happiest man. If you know these things, blessed and happy are you if you do them."
~ Thomas Brooks
"The Lord bless thee, and keep thee; The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace."
~ Numbers 6:24-26
A most blessed Thursday to you, my dear readers...
~ One thing have I desired of the Lord, that I will seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in his temple. Psalm 27:4 ~
