another thrifty find.

I love this book that I found at Northwest Christian thrift store. NWC is one of my favorite places to go for books! It never ceases to amaze me what people giveaway, books that I would consider keepsakes. Books given for special occasions like baptisms, weddings, graduations they are all inscribed. I just love books and have a hard time giving them up, I save them like precious commodities. This one was given to Ardel with love from Tim and Colleen on June 16, 1973, probably a graduation gift. Oh well, I guess you can't keep everything right?

Here are a few prayers that I like:

Teach me, O God, so to use all the circumstances of my life that they may bring forth in me the fruits of holiness rather than the fruits of sin.
Let me use disappointments as material for patience.
Let me use success as a material for thankfulness.
Let me use suspense as a material for perseverance.
Let me use danger for courage.
Let me use reproach as a material for long-suffering.
Let me use praise for humility.
Let me use pleasures as material for temperance.
Let me use pain for endurance.
-John Baillie

Lord take our minds and think through them; Take our lips and speak through them; Take our hearts and set them on fire with the desire to do they holy will.
-Source unknown

Grant Lord this day:
Clear guidance,
Quietness of soul to hear thy voice,
And a steadfast will to follow and perform.
-John S Hoyland

  3. Wonderful! I was there 3 weeks ago and found a couple of books from my childhood--books that I've been looking for and only paid a quarter for each! Remember the night I dropped flowers off? I had your Psalty CD in my purse. I meant to give it to you. It's been in my purse all summer long!
