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!
"And is not God ready to do unto them even as they fear, though with another feeling and a different end from any which they are capable of supposing? He is against sin...and thus He is altogether and always for them...
When we say that God is Love, do we teach men that their fear of Him is groundless? No. As much as they fear will come upon them, possibly far more...The wrath will consume what they call themselves; so that the selves God made shall appear.
For that which cannot be shaken shall remain. That which is immortal in God shall remain in man."
(From "George MacDonald - An Anthology, 365 Readings" by George MacDonald, c. 1824-1905)
(A listing of books and authors, and also dates of individual postings from those books, will be found on my "QUAINT WORDS" page)
