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)
"This way of seeing our Father in everything makes life one long thanksgiving, and gives a rest of heart...
Since, therefore, God is sure to have His own way concerning those who abandon themselves to Him in perfect trust, into what wonderful green pastures of inward rest, and beside what blessedly still waters of inward refreshment, will He lead all such!
If the will of God is our will, and if He always has His way, then we always have our way also, and we reign in a perpetual kingdom. He who sides with God cannot fail to win in every encounter; and whether the result be joy or sorrow, failure or success, death or life, we may under all circumstances join in the Apostle's shout of victory,
"Thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ!"
(From "The Christian's Secret of a Happy Life" by Hannah Whitall Smith, c. 1888)
