Seven, the perfect number,

A year; from June to June.

Yes, seven years together,

They have passed so soon;

Our time of wedded life,

My time with a good wife.

 

The seven years were perfect?

No, not in every part;

I’ve attempted to correct, 

I appreciate a forgiving heart.

God bless you, my wife,

For the best years of my life.

 

Happy Anniversary Dear

On this our perfect year! 

-eab, 6/68

Faith can release in a moment powers for holiness that discipline cannot command in a millennium.

The baptism of the Hoy Spirit gives neither a trained mind nor trained hands.  The holiest soul may be ignorant, awkward, and blundering…he may have no trade, skill, art, or profession.  But not for long.

– Richard Taylor, The Disciplined Life (Minneapolis: Bethany Fellowship Inc., 1962), 60.

 

Richard Shelley Taylor was born this date (3/30/1912) in Cornelius, Oregon.  He wrote several other books including A Right Conception of Sin.  It was my privilege to sit under his teaching in the Chamberlain Holiness Lecture Series at Wesley Biblical Seminary, Jackson, MS.  Got to meet him and he autographed five of his books for me.

…There is no holiness for man unless it is based on the holiness of God.
