Each day when I wake up, I thank God for being able to walk through the cemeteries and learn more about those who have gone before me.
There are days I cannot visit the cemeteries and talk to our ancestors. It is in those days I am most grateful for online obituaries and research databases, because they allow me to continue His work and get to know my ancestors.
Genealogy is about Research, Documentation, and Caring …. Where you find information is where you document it, no matter the path we take …. Tis the journey we all walk with love and respect for those who have gone before us.
Death is the Gateway to Heaven and the dwelling place of God and the destination of His children.
Prayer for Genealogists
Lord, help me dig into the past And sift the sands of time That I might find the roots that made This family tree of mine.
Lord, help me trace the ancient road On which my fathers trod And led them through so many lands To find our present sod.
Lord, help me find an ancient book Or dusty manuscript That's safely hidden now away In some forgotten crypt.
Lord, let it bridge the gap that haunts My soul when I can't find The missing link between some name That ends the same as mine.
Happy moments, praise God Difficult moments, seek God Quiet moments, worship God Painful moments, trust God Every moment, thank God
My flesh shall slumber in the ground, Till the last trumpet's joyful sound; Then burst the chains with sweet surprise And in my SAVIOUR'S image rise.
Capt Thomas Tillett
Along the Road I walked a mile with Pleasure She chattered all the way; But left me none the wiser For all she had to say.
I walked a mile with Sorrow And ne'er a word said she; But oh, the things I learned from her When Sorrow walked with me.
Robert Browning Hamilton
Life should not be just a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming woo hoo what a ride!
My candle burns at both ends; It will not last the night; But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends-- It gives a lovely light !
Never give up! Never surender! Commander Peter Quincy Taggart
