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)
"Do we give always our best and give it with a smile? The big things of life we gladly give or would gladly give to God were He to ask; but are we quite ready always for the little sacrifice?
Jesus, you know that I have told You time and time again that I love You and would love You daily more and more. I mean it all, dear Lord, yes, every word...I will give You just whatever You may ask, be it little or be it great, be it myself or what I call my own.
Only give me Your nerving grace, that when the hour of sacrificing comes, my courage and my love may not grow frail and spoil the work I promised."
(From "My Changeless Friend" by Francis P. Le Buffe, c. 1921)
