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)
"Wait! Wait! Let your waiting be on the Lord! He is worth waiting for. He never disappoints the waiting soul.
While waiting keep up your spirits...The promise which should cheer you...'He shall strengthen thine heart.' This goes at once to the place where you need help...The heart wants calming and cheering; and both of these will come if it be strengthened...
No one else can get at that secret urn of life, the heart, so as to pour strength into it. He alone who made it can make it strong...
O, be brave; for the Lord will impart his strength to you, and you shall be calm in tempest, and glad in sorrow."
(From "Daily Readings by C. H. Spurgeon, by Charles Haddon Spurgeon, c. 1834-1892)
