Wednesday's Word

I received the below in an email last week and though I've read Psalm 23 many times and even though it's one of my favorite Psalms and even though I can recite it from memory...
I was moved anew. Not sure if it's the imagery of the photos or what, but I was struck by how completely He meets our needs, by how carefully He moves in and out of our day to be our Supplier and Stronghold! How He pays attention to every detail of ANYTHING we could possibly require!

The Lord is my Shepherd= That's relationship

I shall not want= That's supply

He makes me lie down in green pastures= That's rest!

He leads me besides still waters= That's Refreshment!

He restores my soul= That's Healing!

He leads me in the paths of righteousness= That's Guidance!

For His names sake= That's Purpose!

Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death= That's testing!

I will fear no evil= That's Protection!
For thou art with me= That's Faithfulness!

Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me= That's discipline!

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies=
That's Hope!

Thou annointest my head with oil= That's Consecration!

My cup runneth over= That's Abundance!

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life=
That's blessing!

And I will dwell in the house of the Lord= That's Security!

FOREVER= That's Eternity!

Catching up

Dear blog,
This summer has been a whirlwind of activity and I purposed to stay away. I've thought of you oft!
I can sit in front of you and tap on these keys for hours with thoughts, impressions, encouragements, personal insights, sadness and joy.
In my search for health, fitness and fun I decided my behind needed as much exercise as my fingers achieve chatting with you through the long, cold and rainy winter months.

From A to Zumba it's been a full summer.

I feel in some respects it's a year of LASTS. As my daughter turns 18 to my son turning 16 and driving off alone.
One last summer vacation, last of the family movie nights, last berry picking, last long lazy walks, last school supply shopping, and one last high school registration just to name a few.

My best friend last year in Oregon. Girl you will be missed.
I look to this year with a square set of shoulders, forward motion, many rich memories and a tight hold to a box of tissues.

It's also a year of new beginnings and I can't keep my eyes from capturing the firsts as well.

Alas as we say farewell to a rich and full summer and hello to hopefully a cozy and fruitful fall.


Giving thanks for sun and His Son, Turquois waters, scary rides, smooth plane rides, adventures, the feel of the warm Caribbean sea enveloping me entirely, sound of crashing waves, silliness and HOME!
