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!
"Do not let any of these things [of the world] move you, for the rest that Jesus Christ has prepared for you is an ample recompense for all you may meet with here.
This rest is the fruit of the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ: O how will it fill our souls with love, to think that through the streams of this blood, we have overcome the violence of the world, and the snares of the devil.
My dear brethren, be not discouraged at the treatment you meet with here, but let it be a means to stir you up to advance in the love of the Lord who has prepared a rest for you."
(From "Daily Readings by George Whitefield" by George Whitefield, c. 1714-1770)
(Today is the memorial service for my aunt. I miss you a bunch, Auntie Phyllis - but I'll see you again! Rest in the love of the Lord.)
(A listing of books and authors, and also dates of individual postings from those books, will be found on my "QUAINT WORDS" page)
