Some Favorite Quotes

Just thought I'd share some of my favorite quotes from some recent books that I've read.

A Slender Thread ~by Tracie Peterson
'Mattie laughed....."Child, I always expect miracles. It's the only way to get through life!" '

A Quilter's Holiday ~by Jennifer Chiaverini
' The Lord provides...but He's also mighty keen on self-reliance.'

'We're all very busy, but we should never become too preoccupied with our own concerns to help those in need.'

Take Four ~by Karen Kingsbury
' Her parents had often said money & fame would never bring them joy. She could hear her dad telling them true joy could only come from having a passion for the work they'd do when they grew up, from living within their means, and ~~even more~~ from the people they surrounded themselves with.'

In the Karen Kingsbury books the kids participate in CKT (Christian Kid's theater) & their 'theme song' through out the books is Great is Thy Faithfulness.

'The Lord's...compassions...are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.' ~Lamentations 3:22-23

Great is thy faithfulness
O God my Father
There is no shadow of turning with Thee
Thou changest not
Thy compassions they fail not
As Thou hast been
Thou forever wilt be.

Pardon for sin & a peace that endureth
Thy own dear presence to cheer & to guide
Strength for today & bright hope for tomorrow
Blessings all mine
With ten thousand beside!

Great is thy faithfulness
Great is thy faithfulness
Morning by morning new mercies I see
All I have needed
Thy hand hath provided
Great is thy faithfulness
Lord unto me!
