Material possessions and honors of the world do not endure. But your union as wife, husband, and family can. No sacrifice is too great to have the blessings of an eternal marriage. By making and keeping sacred temple covenants, we evidence our love for God, for our companion, and our real regard for our posterity-even those yet unborn. Our family is the focus of our greatest work and joy in this life; so will it be throughout all eternity.Russell M. Nelson Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Russell M. Nelson: Material possessions and honors of the world do not endure. But your union as wife,
Have faith to keep all the commandments of God, knowing that they are given to bless His children and bring them joy. [You] will encounter people who pick which commandments they will keep and ignore others that they choose to break. I call this the cafeteria approach to obedience. This practice of picking and choosing will not work. It will lead to misery. To prepare to meet God, one keeps all of His commandments. It takes faith to obey them, and keeping His commandments will strengthen that faith.Russell M. Nelson Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Russell M. Nelson: Have faith to keep all the commandments of God, knowing that they are given to
But, after all, I was on the right side; that was enough to satisfy my conscience. The feeling of the law, the satisfaction of being right, the joy of self-esteem, cher monsieur, are powerful incentives for keeping us upright or keeping us moving forward. On the other hand, if you deprive men of them, you transform them into dogs frothing with rage.Albert Camus Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Albert Camus: But, after all, I was on the right side; that was enough to satisfy my

Be free of all attachments, fears and concerns by keeping your mind inside your own heart. Rest in being. Like this, your life is always fresh and imbued with pure joy and timeless presence. Be happy, wise and free.Mooji Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Mooji: Don't be a storehouse of memories. Leave past, future and even present thoughts behind. Be
My life got happier when I trusted my gut to tell me when to open the door or close the door. There is joy to be found in keeping away from people & situations which could harm my self-respect my peace my worth.Karen Salmansohn Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Karen Salmansohn: My life got happier when I trusted my gut to tell me when to open
Milton was right,' said my Teacher. 'The choice of every lost soul can be expressed in the words "Better to reign in Hell than serve in Heaven." There is always something they insist on keeping even at the price of misery. There is always something they prefer to joy - that is, to reality.C.S. Lewis Keeping Your Joy Sayings By C.S. Lewis: Milton was right,' said my Teacher. 'The choice of every lost soul can be expressed
Love like rain, can nourish from above, drenching couples with soaking joy. But sometimes, under the angry heat of life, love dries on the surface and must nourish from below, tending to its roots, keeping itself alive.Mitch Albom Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Mitch Albom: Love like rain, can nourish from above, drenching couples with soaking joy. But sometimes, under
I get the sense that many in the contemporary biblical womanhood movement feel that the tasks associated with homemaking have been so marginalized in our culture that it's up to them to restore the sacredness of keeping the home. This is a noble goal indeed, and one around which all people of faith can rally. But in our efforts to celebrate and affirm God's presence in the home, we should be wary of elevating the vocation of homemaking above all others by insinuating that for women, God's presence is somehow restricted to that sphere. If God is the God of all pots and pans, then He is also the God of all shovels and computers and paints and assembly lines and executive offices and classrooms. Peace and joy belong not to the woman who finds the right vocation, but to the woman who finds God in any vocation, who looks for the divine around every corner.Rachel Held Evans Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Rachel Held Evans: I get the sense that many in the contemporary biblical womanhood movement feel that the
We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. We say to girls, you can have ambition, but not too much. You should aim to be successful, but not too successful. Otherwise, you would threaten the man. Because I am female, I am expected to aspire to marriage. I am expected to make my life choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important. Now marriage can be a source of joy and love and mutual support but why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don't teach boys the same? We raise girls to see each other as competitors not for jobs or accomplishments, which I think can be a good thing, but for the attention of men. We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are.Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie: We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. We say to girls, you
The Holy Spirit doesn't need to equip you for what you're not going to do, so if you're in rebellion against Jesus and refusing His right to be Lord, He doesn't need to send the Holy Spirit to equip you for service. And, tragically, you miss out on the joy that He brings.
So let the Holy Spirit deal with anything that's keeping you from obeying Christ.
Henry T. Blackaby Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Henry T. Blackaby: The Holy Spirit doesn't need to equip you for what you're not going to do,
David O. Russell's best films are thrilling high wire acts that run the moment to moment risk of tumbling to the ground. In his latest, "Joy," Russell has more trouble than usual keeping his balance on the wire.David O. Russell Keeping Your Joy Sayings By David O. Russell: David O. Russell's best films are thrilling high wire acts that run the moment to
[The Relief Society] is composed of women whose feelings of charity spring from hearts changed by qualifying for and by keeping covenants offered only in the Lord's true Church. Their feelings of charity come from Him through His Atonement. Their acts of charity are guided by His example - and come out of gratitude for His infinite gift of mercy - and by the Holy Spirit, which He sends to accompany His servants on their missions of mercy. Because of that, they have done and are able to do uncommon things for others and to find joy even when their own unmet needs are great.Henry B. Eyring Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Henry B. Eyring: [The Relief Society] is composed of women whose feelings of charity spring from hearts changed
These moments of joy are fleeting. We cannot reach out and grab onto God. When we try to grab onto him, he remains always just beyond our fingertips. Only God can reach across the abyss and touch us . . . One might ask. "How do mystics pray?" The answer is clear: mystics pray by keeping watch. It is not the consolations that ultimately speak to us of God. No, it is not the consolations. Rather, it is paradoxically, the waiting. As we learn to wait, we become awake. In the very act of keeping vigil, we become awake to God's presence.Stephen J. Rossetti Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Stephen J. Rossetti: These moments of joy are fleeting. We cannot reach out and grab onto God. When
I read my books to writing workshops and friends, and I'm often focussed just on keeping them entertained. I never think about marketing at all.Karen Joy Fowler Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Karen Joy Fowler: I read my books to writing workshops and friends, and I'm often focussed just on
The winter is cold, is cold.
All's spent in keeping warm.
Has joy been frozen, too?
I blow upon my hands
Stiff from the biting wind.
My heart beats slow, beats slow.
What has become of joy?

If joy's gone from my heart
Then it is closed to You
Who made it, gave it life...

Elusive, evasive, peace comes
Only when it's not sought.

Help me forget the cold
That grips the grasping world...
Madeleine L'Engle Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Madeleine L'Engle: The winter is cold, is cold.All's spent in keeping warm.Has joy been frozen, too?I blow
All this holiday cheer
Heaven knows where it goes
But it returns every year
And though this winter does nothing but storm
The joy in my heart is ablaze and it's keeping me warm!
Owl City Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Owl City: All this holiday cheerHeaven knows where it goesBut it returns every yearAnd though this winter
Is it beyond thee to be glad with the gladness of this rhythm? to be tossed and lost and broken in the whirl of this fearful joy?
All things rush on, they stop not, they look not behind, no power can hold them back, they rush on.
Keeping steps with that restless, rapid music, seasons come dancing and pass away
colours, tunes, and perfumes pour in endless cascades in the abounding joy that scatters and gives up and dies every moment.
Rabindranath Tagore Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Rabindranath Tagore: Is it beyond thee to be glad with the gladness of this rhythm? to be
On a cloudy day, when the dim dance of the firelight and the warmth of the sconces are not enough, the books shed their own form of light. By the hundreds, they fill the shelves that stretch across every inch of exposed wall. They rise up to the ceiling, warriors of an impenetrable army, encircling my over-sized armchair and keeping me safe as they whisper their stories softly in my ear.Kelseyleigh Reber Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Kelseyleigh Reber: On a cloudy day, when the dim dance of the firelight and the warmth of
We are never as thankful as we should be. When good things come to us, we do everything possible to tell ourselves we accomplished that or at least deserve it. We take the credit. And when our lives simply are going along pretty smoothly, without a lot of difficulties, we don't live in quiet, amazed, thankful consciousness of it. In the end, we not only rob God of the glory due him, but the assumption that we are keeping our lives going robs us of the joy and relief that constant gratitude to an all-powerful God brings.Timothy Keller Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Timothy Keller: We are never as thankful as we should be. When good things come to us,
I had started keeping a journal, and I was discovering that I didn't need school in order to experience the misery of appearances. I could manufacture excruciating embarrassment in the privacy of my bedroom, simply by reading what I'd written in the journal the day before. Its pages faithfully mirrored my fraudulence and pomposity and immaturity. Reading it made me desperate to change myself, to sound less idiotic. As George Benson had stressed in Then Joy Breaks Through, the experience of growth and self-realization, even of ecstatic joy, were natural processes available to believers and nonbelievers alike. And so I declared private war on stagnation and committed myself privately to personal growth. The Authentic Relationship I wanted now was with the written page.Jonathan Franzen Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Jonathan Franzen: I had started keeping a journal, and I was discovering that I didn't need school
May God bless each of us in our calls to serve. May our faith strengthen as we serve in righteousness, faithfully keeping the commandments. May our testimonies ever grow stronger as we seek to find the fountain of eternal truth. May the brotherhood that exists in our quorum be of comfort and strength and security as we pass through this mortal part of our existence. May the joy of gospel service ever abide in our hearts as we go forward to fulfill our duties and responsibilities as servants in our Father in Heaven's kingdom.L. Tom Perry Keeping Your Joy Sayings By L. Tom Perry: May God bless each of us in our calls to serve. May our faith strengthen
I'm not gonna give the British Government the joy of keeping taxing me. They don't tax art. And all my cars are just a collection of art.Jay Kay Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Jay Kay: I'm not gonna give the British Government the joy of keeping taxing me. They don't
When Charlie arrived home from his mother's funeral, he was met at the door by two very large very enthusiastic canines, who , undistracted by keeping watch over Sophie's love hostage, were now able to visit the full measure of their affection and joy upon their returning master. It is generally agreed, and in fact stated in the bylaws of the American Kennel Club, that you have not been truly dog-humped until you have been double-dog-humped by a pair of four-hundred-pouund hounds from hell (Section 5, paragraph 7: Standards of Humping and Ass-dragging). And despite having used an extra-strength antiperspirant that very morning before leaving Sedona, Charlie found that getting poked repeatedly in the armpits by two damp devil-dog dicks was leaving him feeling less than fresh.
Sophie, call them off. Call them off."
The puppies are dancing with Daddy," Sophie giggled. "Dance, Daddy!
Christopher Moore Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Christopher Moore: When Charlie arrived home from his mother's funeral, he was met at the door by
Miles just smiled and felt her love flow around his own. Yet inside his love was a rock, and it had the words "payback is sweet" written in large letters on it. He laughed and she looked up at him and saw the hard glint in his eyes. "Uh oh!" was all she said. He laughed again deep in his chest. She kissed him happily. She sucked at his throat. She, as much as he, would enjoy the struggle that would follow.
Part of the joy of their love was this constant battle to top the other. Kate was excellent at beginning these battles and sometimes even won them. Yet her weakness was that she submitted naturally. She knew it and he knew it. From her point of view the skill of the game was in keeping his Dom side distracted enough so she could submit to him before he took her. Miles smiled as he realised that whoever won was largely irrelevant to their love. Yet he liked to win; and so did she. (Journey Into Submission, eXtasy)
Khul Waters Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Khul Waters: Miles just smiled and felt her love flow around his own. Yet inside his love
The modern world has far too little understanding of the art of keeping young. Its notion of progress has been to pile one thing on top of another, without caring if each thing was crushed in turn. People forgot that the human soul can enjoy a thing most when there is time to think about it and be thankful for it. And by crowding things together they lost the sense of surprise; and surprise is the secret of joy.Gilbert K. Chesterton Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Gilbert K. Chesterton: The modern world has far too little understanding of the art of keeping young. Its
I believe God's keeping the records, and I believe you will be rewarded even in this life. Somehow, some way, God will make it up to you. It may be He protected you from an accident you never knew. You can't give God something without God giving you more in return, whether it's peace or joy or satisfaction.Joel Osteen Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Joel Osteen: I believe God's keeping the records, and I believe you will be rewarded even in
Though one may acquire much in wealth, fame, or honor, the real joy of life does not lie there but, rather, in keeping the romance of living going. Nothing gives such complete and profound happiness as the perpetually fresh wonder and mystery of exciting life.Norman Vincent Peale Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Norman Vincent Peale: Though one may acquire much in wealth, fame, or honor, the real joy of life
But Jesus, our Advocate, presents an effectual plea in behalf of all who by repentance and faith have committed the keeping of their souls to Him.He pleads their cause, and by the mighty arguments of Calvary vanquishes their accuser.Ellen G. White Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Ellen G. White: But Jesus, our Advocate, presents an effectual plea in behalf of all who by repentance
God is good. He is eager to forgive. He wants us to perfect ourselves and maintain control of ourselves. He does not want Satan and others to control our lives. We must learn that keeping our Heavenly Father's commandments represents the only path to total control of ourselves, the only way to find joy, truth, and fulfillment in this life and in eternity.Spencer W. Kimball Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Spencer W. Kimball: God is good. He is eager to forgive. He wants us to perfect ourselves and
The sense of doing good , the satisfaction of being right, the joy of looking favorably upon oneself, dear sir, are powerful levers for keeping us upright and making us progress. On the other hand, if men are deprived of that feeling, they are changed into rabid dogs.Albert Camus Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Albert Camus: The sense of doing good , the satisfaction of being right, the joy of looking
Finding joy in times of pain begins with understanding that true joy is rooted in God. Thus, keeping one's relationship with God at the center of one's life is essential to discovering areas of joy, comfort and solace.James Martin Keeping Your Joy Sayings By James Martin: Finding joy in times of pain begins with understanding that true joy is rooted in
Dear Father, take this days life into Thine own keeping. Control all my thoughts and feelings. Direct all my energies. Instruct my mind. Sustain my will. Take my hands and make them skilful to serve Thee. Take my feet and make them swift to do Thy bidding. Take my eyes and keep them fixed upon Thine everlasting beauty. Take my mouth and make it eloquent in testimony to Thy love. Make this day a day of obedience, a day of spiritual joy and peace. Make this days work a little part of the work of the Kingdom of my Lord Christ, in whose name these my prayers are said. Amen.John Baillie Keeping Your Joy Sayings By John Baillie: Dear Father, take this days life into Thine own keeping. Control all my thoughts and
We create false selves, hoping to control how other people treat us, all the while keeping our true selves hidden. To ensure we are not hurt again, we push relationships aside - including our relationship with God - or pretend to be someone who's stronger, more intelligent, more faithful, and more respectable. The end result is that our lives are based on lies and that real joy and peace will forever escape us.Chad H. Young Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Chad H. Young: We create false selves, hoping to control how other people treat us, all the while
Still, I was struck by this. Because I am female, I'm expected to aspire to marriage. I am expected to make my life choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important. Marriage can be a good thing, a source of joy, love and mutual support. But why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage, yet we don't teach boys to do the same? IChimamanda Ngozi Adichie Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie: Still, I was struck by this. Because I am female, I'm expected to aspire to
Pain happens, but suffering is optional. When pain comes, make use of the experience, but do not wallow in it.
When you accidentally place your finger in a flame, it is supposed to hurt just long enough for you to pull it out.
If you think there is value in keeping it there, you will be a crispy critter. Pain is a minor element of life, unless you are indulging it.
Then it becomes suffering. Get the message and then get on with your life, which is far more about joy than sorrow.
Alan Cohen Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Alan Cohen: Pain happens, but suffering is optional. When pain comes, make use of the experience, but
No man ever threw away life while it was worth keeping.David Hume Keeping Your Joy Sayings By David Hume: No man ever threw away life while it was worth keeping.
Don't be afraid to stand tall in YOUR truth! Boldly and confidently face everything that has, and is, keeping you bound. Fight for your inner peace! Fight for your happiness! Fight for everything and everybody that's important to you! You are NOT a victim! Don't even play into that. You owe it to yourself to LIVE! Live your life without the regrets, without the resentments, without the unforgiveness, without the blame game, without the self-pity, without any and everything that keeps you from experiencing true joy within! You are too important to waste your life away! Learn to appreciate and value your life, but most importantly, learn to appreciate and value yourself! You count too, no matter what you've done!Stephanie Lahart Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Stephanie Lahart: Don't be afraid to stand tall in YOUR truth! Boldly and confidently face everything that
People who make time for the sadness in your life, not just the joy, are worth keeping around.Catherine Doyle Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Catherine Doyle: People who make time for the sadness in your life, not just the joy, are
A thousand recollected lives were passing through her, a thousand stories - of love and work, of parents and children, of duty and joy and grief. Beds slept in and meals eaten, and the bliss and pain of the body, and a view of summer leaves from a window on a morning it had rained; the nights of loneliness and the nights of love, the soul in it's body keeping always longing to be known.Justin Cronin Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Justin Cronin: A thousand recollected lives were passing through her, a thousand stories - of love and
The dogs were partly responsible for keeping her sane. The relationship she had with them was pure joy. No ulterior motives, no spite, just love and care and kindness, exactly the emotions she wanted to cultivate.J. Courtney Sullivan Keeping Your Joy Sayings By J. Courtney Sullivan: The dogs were partly responsible for keeping her sane. The relationship she had with them
The reason I was so at peace in that room, I think, is that in it I remembered back before time and beyond space to the day when God in his glory made us and the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy. By quieting our minds and keeping still, by praying less in words perhaps than in images, maybe most of all by just letting up on ourselves and letting go, I think we can begin to put ourselves back in touch with that glory and joy we come from and begin moving out of the shadows toward something more like light.Frederick Buechner Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Frederick Buechner: The reason I was so at peace in that room, I think, is that in
Marriage means handing over yourself, your body, your future, your keeping to the one whom you dearly love, although this person may, in many ways, remain a stranger. This tremendous act of faith is something that can unlock in each lover powers of compassion, generosity, joy, passion, fidelity and hope that no one guessed was even there. That is why the confidence of young lovers is not foolish or arrogant, but an expression of a basic fact in human experience that the greatest of human gifts are set to work only when people are prepared to risk everything and first you risk it before God.Ravi Zacharias Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Ravi Zacharias: Marriage means handing over yourself, your body, your future, your keeping to the one whom
In short, Nance, even was you going to the very devil himself, your mother and I would rather see you fly from us in joy, than stay with us in sorrow - and grow, maybe, to hate us, for keeping you from your fate.Sarah Waters Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Sarah Waters: In short, Nance, even was you going to the very devil himself, your mother and
The waterfall, and the tiki torches, all of these things the stuff of vacations and dreams and impossible to maintain, but then she knew - and this is what was keeping her up, her head careening with something like a toddler's joy - that she would be going back to that place, the place where all these things happened. She was welcome there, employed there.Dave Eggers Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Dave Eggers: The waterfall, and the tiki torches, all of these things the stuff of vacations and
Then a ploughman said , speak to us of work : in keeping yourself with labour you are in truth loving life ,
And to love life throught labour is to be intimate with inmost secrets .
And what is it to work with love ?
it is to weave the colth with threads from your heart , even as if your beloved were to wear that colth .
It is to build a house with affection , even as if your beloved were to dwell in that house .
It is to sow seeds with tenderness and reap the harvest with joy , even as if your beloved were to eat the fruit .
It is to change all things you fashion with a breath of your own spirit .
He who works in marble , and finds the shape of his own soul in the stone , is nobler than he who ploughs the soil.
Kahlil Gibran Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Kahlil Gibran: Then a ploughman said , speak to us of work : in keeping yourself with
Our love affairs with sin are not just a matter of morality, though, but of joy. This is not just about faithfulness to God, but about finding our deepest, most satisfying fulfillment. Many people think following Jesus means surrendering our happiness. You can either enjoy a fun, passionate, and exciting life here for a short time or live a bland, boring, but safe life forever with God. That lie is a quiet, but violent concentration camp, fencing men and women in, keeping them away from God, and torturing them with lesser pleasures that only lead to a swift and yet never-ending death. If you want to be truly happy - even in this life, surrounded by everything beautiful, fun, and exciting in this world - you want to be found with Jesus.Marshall Segal Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Marshall Segal: Our love affairs with sin are not just a matter of morality, though, but of
Everyone who ever changed the world in their own way, everyone who ever accomplished huge dreams had to, at one point in their lives, make the decision to stop caring completely about what others thought, and just go for it. It's in the ENTHUSIASM group that we become truly free. We no longer live our lives for others, but fully for ourselves. We understand that we will benefit the world much more by focusing on our own joy, on living our own big dreams and by inspiring others to their own full empowerment, than by keeping ourselves small.Melody Fletcher Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Melody Fletcher: Everyone who ever changed the world in their own way, everyone who ever accomplished huge
Being a good steward of your pain ... It involves being alive to your life. It involves taking the risk of being open, of reaching out, of keeping in touch with the pain as well as the joy of what happens because at no time more than at a painful time do we live out of the depths of who we are instead of out of the shallows.Frederick Buechner Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Frederick Buechner: Being a good steward of your pain ... It involves being alive to your life.
If God brings our pets back to life, it wouldn't surprise me. It would be just like Him. It would be totally in keeping with His generous character ... Exorbitant. Excessive. Extravagant in grace after grace. Of all the dazzling discoveries and ecstatic pleasures heaven will hold for us, the potential of seeing Scrappy would be pure whimsy-utterly, joyfully, surprisingly superfluous ... Heaven is going to be a place that will refract and reflect in as many ways as possible the goodness and joy of our great God, who delights in lavishing love on His children.Joni Eareckson Tada Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Joni Eareckson Tada: If God brings our pets back to life, it wouldn't surprise me. It would be
No day needs to be ordinary if we realize the gift God is giving us when He gives us another day to live and enjoy. An extraordinary attitude can quickly turn an ordinary day into an amazing adventure. Jesus said He came so that we might have and enjoy life (see John 10:10). If we refuse to enjoy it, then it's no one's fault but our own. I would like to suggest that you take responsibility for your joy and never again give anyone else the job of keeping you happy.Joyce Meyer Keeping Your Joy Sayings By Joyce Meyer: No day needs to be ordinary if we realize the gift God is giving us
