Abundant Peace

“Give the king thy judgments, O God, and thy righteousness unto the king’s son. He shall judge thy people with righteousness, and thy poor with judgment. The mountains shall bring peace to the people, and the little hills, by righteousness. He shall judge the poor of the people, he shall save the children of the needy, and shall break in pieces the oppressor.
They shall fear thee as long as the sun and moon endure, throughout all generations. He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass: as showers that water the earth. In his days shall the righteous flourish; and abundance of peace so long as the moon endureth.
– Psalms 72:1-7 KJV

The mountains bring me peace too, Lord, as long as You are in them. You have blessed me to allow me to live in them, especially along the Blue Ridge Parkway. 🙂 Thank You.

I love “as long as the sun and moon endureth!” I love “rain upon the mown grass.” It might be sticky to the shoes and feet, but it sure smells so nice… so good! Thank You for the “showers that water the earth.” I don’t know if this really is David’s prayer or not, or really about King Solomon, but it’s very nice. Solomon did save the baby (1 Kings 3:16-27).

Our Long Journey

What a long journey of mercy
You have walked me through.
What a long journey of grace
to have been blessed with You.
So many memories flood in,
I am overwhelmed with words.
You have seen me through
so many misery and hurts.
Yet nothing on my journeying
has compared to learning of You,
and Your wondrous love
shown in everything You do.
Those memories are Yours and mine.
Those treasures are all ours.
You have poured out Your blessings.
I’ve loved bathing in the showers.

Gifts 2017 #9 Water

Christmas Countdown: Water is a GIFT. Being able to take a nice hot shower this afternoon at lymphedema therapy was one of the sweetest gifts God gave me today. I was so grateful for the opportunity God had so lovingly given, and has made the possibility of getting a shower whenever I am at therapy! Lord willing, I will get a picture for you from next therapy to show you what I am going through right now, and will do a post. Thank you, Lord, for water… to drink as well 🙂 And thank you for being the Living Water that will one day keep us from ever thirsting again! ❤
