I love words....I see them as a gift. The fact that God chose to give us all we need for life and godliness through His son and a book, the bible, speaks loudly to me. I keep a little black quote book to record those words I come across that have an effect on me.
My heart is to start sharing from this little treasure book on Fridays. I also hope one day to find a better way to categorize them in a beautiful antique book. I love to write and at some point want to take a calligraphy class, then rewrite them all in this notebook I will create. I think it will actually happen once the gray hair starts to come; for now the little black book will have to do.
This is one of my favorites:
"Truth must enter into the soul, penetrate and saturate it, or else it is of no value. Doctrines held as a matter of creed are like bread in the hand, which ministers no nourishment to the frame; but doctrine accepted by the heart, is as food digested, which by assimilation sustains and builds up the body. In us truth must be a living force, an active energy, an indwelling reality, a apart of the woof and warp of our being."
Have a great weekend.
