O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me.
You know when I sit down or stand up.
You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.
You see me when I travel
and when I rest at home.
You know everything I do.
You know what I am going to say even before I say it, Lord.
You go before me and follow me. You place your hand of blessing on my head.
I can never escape from your Spirit!
I can never get away from your presence!
If I go up to heaven, you are there;
if I go down to the grave, you are there.
If I ride the wings of the morning,
if I dwell by the farthest oceans,
even there your hand will guide me,
and your strength will support me.
I could ask the darkness to hide me
and the light around me to become night—
but even in darkness I cannot hide from you.
To you the night shines as bright as day.
Darkness and light are the same to you.
You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body
and knit me together in my mother’s womb.
Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.
You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion,
as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.
You saw me before I was born.
Every day of my life was recorded in your book.
Every moment was laid out
before a single day had passed.
How precious are your thoughts about me,O God.
They cannot be numbered!
I can’t even count them;
they outnumber the grains of sand!
And when I wake up,
you are still with me!
O God, if only you would destroy the wicked!
Get out of my life, you murderers!
They blaspheme you;
your enemies misuse your name.
O Lord, shouldn’t I hate those who hate you?
Shouldn’t I despise those who oppose you?
Yes, I hate them with total hatred,
for your enemies are my enemies.
Search me, O God, and know my heart;
test me and know my anxious thoughts.
Point out anything in me that offends you,
and lead me along the path of everlasting life
Months have passed since I have been able to post. Relocating, illness, schooling and life's up and down adventures have been constant in our changing lives. But, we always find time to play ;0). The littles delightfully go with the flow and almost never complain. How I cherish them all. Mountain Man is working hard and thriving.
We are semi/sort of settled. :) It is emotionally , physically and spiritually difficult moving to an unfamiliar place where there are no friends or family and so unlike our old breathtaking home where we were settled and comfortable. I miss my family so!!
We feel like strangers in a foreign land. Home sickness has tackled our hearts often enough. But, no matter where we are, the Lord is here always constant and remaining the same. What a great assurance to have with so many uncertainties in life. Do you have this assurance? Do you have His everlasting grace and free gift? I don't have much time to write much , but will say I appreciate so, so very much each and every prayer my dear friends have lifted up for me and mine.
Psalm 139. This scripture is such an inspiration to me and I treasure His Words. Please take moment to open your Bible to soak in this scripture from David. So many truths are contained within. It is so comforting, soothing to my heart and I know it will be to yours. Even if you are not hurting ~ it is a balm to the soul. God loves us so. I have a few more photos to share and hope you enjoy them. They are on a warm fall day here where the girls were just frolicking and being the tender hearts they are. Be blessed and may His precious grace fill you deeply. Just ask Him....Psalm 139 read it.
Dancing and singing....
and sometimes falling ;)
And I can't leave without a couple of my signature shots
