“They are not lost to you that are laid up in Christ’s treasury in heaven.
At the resurrection ye shall meet with them:
there they are, sent before but not sent away.
Your Lord loveth you, who is homely to take and give, borrow and lend.”

“Go on and faint not, something of yours is in heaven,
beside the flesh of your exalted Saviour, and ye go on after your own.”

“The child hath but changed a bed in the garden, and is planted up higher, nearer the sun,
where he shall thrive better than in this out-field moor-ground.”


~Samuel Rutherford (1600-1661)

I just received a book for Mother’s Day called “The Loveliness of Christ” which is a compilation of Rutherford quotes. Oh my goodness, they are like little jewels. I hope the above quotes blessed you as they did me. They made me cry. 🙂 And there are tons more in there… I have barely scratched the surface of the book so far.
