Beauty and Strength...


One thing have I desired of the Lord,
that will I seek after;
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the
days of my life, to behold the
beauty of the Lord,
and to inquire in His temple.

Psalms 27:4
KJV


I will love thee, O Lord, my strength.

The Lord is my rock and my fortress,
and my deliverer; my God, my strength,
in whom I trust; my buckler, 
and the horn of my salvation
and my high tower.

I will call upon the Lord, who is
Worthy to be Praised:
so shall I be saved from mine enemies.

Psalms 18:1-3
KJV


I got a new bible this weekend and I got it engraved with my name.
(First one ever to have my name on the cover.)
I am so excited!

I have been study a lot of God's Word 
and I just love these two scriptures.

It's nice to know that God provides our strength 
that we need each day to complete the tasks at hand.

Which, at times it seems as though we have so much to do.

I love that he is my rock.  
When I am tired, I can lean on Him for strength.

He is the one that created all things
and the Beauty it all holds is truly amazing.

You look at these flowers and they are simply stunning.
The colors, the size, the shape, the smell...
all came from the Beauty of the Creator!

I am just in Awe...

Thank you Lord for giving us such
 wonderful things to enjoy.
To capture your true beauty and color
 throughout this world.

Thank you that you give us strength, 
when we are weary and tired.

Thank you that you give us a day of rest,
to love and worship you!

Thank you that you gave me another 
beautiful day to enjoy!

I AM SO BLESSED!!

You Are Blessed!!

I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend
and may you find the peace of the Lord today.

I know I sure have!

Hugs and Blessings to you,

Hello sweet Amy! This was just the post I needed to end my day...you have given my mind beautiful images to remember and precious words to think upon :)

How wonderful that you got a Bible with your name on it! I remember getting a new Bible when I got married and I had my new last name put on it - I was so giddy! {smiles}}

Have a blessed Sunday, my friend. Hugs!

Hi Amy! I know that God is so happy with you in your thanksgiving for His creation. What a beautiful reflection on Scripture too. I can see why you love those passages so well...

We are back from our travels, and I'm ready to get back to blogging. My daughter is due August 13th, so we still have plenty of excitement to go around!

So happy for your peace in Christ. Such a great gift.
Blessings,
Ceil
