Welcome to "Quaint Words!”
These posts will contain thoughts, poems, and prayers from old books that I have found at antique stores, flea markets, and garage sales (with an occasional treasure from a bookstore).
I love the rhythm and sound of the older English language, and am blessed by other believers who have gone before me!
(A listing of books and authors, and also dates of individual postings from those books, will be found on my "QUAINT WORDS" page)
"Seek no rights. Judge every one's motives to be noble and true and great. Every wrong and injustice make you dearer to Me. The more you are hidden, unappreciated, unnoticed, the more truly do I take up My abode in you and value every act you perform and notice the slightest effort to be good...
Strive to be spiritual. It is for this you are a follower of Me. Many things will attract you more than the spiritual life, everything else is easier, than the spiritual life, but be courageous to set them all aside, and little by little the interior life will absorb you, will satisfy you, and you will long for nothing else. All this means great effort and an amount of suffering, but I am with you. I stand by your side, My child, unseen tis true, but ever strengthening, guiding, and encouraging.
The time will not be long before you shall see my smile of approval and hear my words of love unending, and enjoy the happiness of eternal life."
(From "Spiritual Pastels" by J.S.E., c. 1918)
