"Friends, Dwell in the Living Spirit, and quench not the motion of it in yourselves, nor the movings of it in others; though many have run out and gone beyond their measures, yet many more have quenched the measure of the Spirit of God; and have become dead and dull and have questioned through a false fear; so there has been hurt both ways. Therefore, be obedient to the power of the Lord and His Spirit; war with the Philistine that would stop up your well and your springs." --George Fox, Quaker, 1683

A few minutes ago every tree was excited, bowing to the roaring storm, waving, swirling, tossing their branches in glorious enthusiasm like worship. But though to the outer ear these trees are now silent, their songs never cease. Every hidden cell is throbbing with music and life, every fiber thrilling like harp strings, while incense is ever flowing from the balsam bells and leaves --John Muir

Depart from the highway, and transplant thyself in some enclosed ground,
for it is hard for a tree that stands by the wayside to keep its fruit until it be ripe. ---John Chrysostom
It's a nice time of year to retreat and allow the Lord to fill us back up....far
from the 'madding crowd...
lovely snow falling from pines....Easthampton, MA

"I held a moment in my hand, brilliant as a star, fragile as a flower, a tiny sliver of one hour. I dripped it carelessly, Ah! I didn't know, I held opportunity."
"Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers."
