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)
"In order that we may be successful in our fishing [for men], let us ask Christ to give us attractive bait - His ways, His manner of doing, His tact, His patience, His forgiveness, His forbearance, His generosity, His strength.
No matter the cost, no matter the weariness, no matter the discouraging moments, no matter what comes our way, provided we gather in souls for Christ.
It is the good we have done on earth that we shall find in Heaven - nothing more; and this good is done only through our individual goodness - our union with God - not through any notice or consideration that may be shown us.
Let us then strive to be holy."
(From "Spiritual Pastels" by J.S.E. c. 1918)
