When all my means have reached their end

Then His have just begun.

    What wonderful quotes! Thank you, Sandy. I especially enjoyed the quote from Frances Havergal. She authored my favorite hymn in all the world, Like a River Glorious. “Stayed upon Jehovah, hearts are fully blessed. Finding, as he promised, perfect peace and rest.”
