When we first started our group, I posted on the blog the quote defining humility that Dr. Bob had as a plaque on his desk.
It is a beautiful quote! At Aidel’s request, I am reposting it as a picture:
Here it is again, not as a picture:
Perpetual quietness of heart.
It is to have no trouble.
It is never to be fretted or vexed, irritable or sore;
to wonder at nothing that is done to me, to feel nothing
done against me.
It is to be at rest when nobody praises
me, and when I am blamed or despised,
it is to have a blessed home in myself
where I can go in and shut the door
and kneel to my Father in secret and
be at peace, as in a deep sea of calmness,
when all around and about is seeming trouble.
from “Dr. Bob and the Good Old timers”, page 222, first written
by Andrew Murray, a So. African religious leader, ca. 1828-1917.
I highly recommend reading the book. In fact, who would be interested in reading the book during our group?
Please let me know.
With blessings for recovery & peace,
thank you! yes, i would be interested in reading this book.Betty from NJ
