Quotable Quote

"Then thank God thou wert taught to love Him while thou wert young, for thou knowest not now hard it is to give up cherished sins and evil cutoms when thou hast lived half thy life in the practice of them.  I tell thee they are as hard to break as ropes of vine withes, and bind thee just as tightly.  Only the breath of the Lord God Almighty can destroy them at first, and that only can keep thee from being bound again, for they are always trying to creep over thee."

  1. I love this idea of posting a quote from a good book. I just finished reading my last Salem Ridge Press book. I enjoyed them but I'm having a hard time getting my 7th grader to read one.

    I'm stopping by on the blogwalk from TOS Crew. Nice to meet you.

    I've been reading "Yussuf the Guide" to the boys over breakfast, but it's a slow-go!
