Psalm 91

1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

2 I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust."

3 Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare
and from the deadly pestilence.

4 He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

5 You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,

6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.

7 A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.

8 You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.

9 If you make the Most High your dwelling—
even the LORD, who is my refuge-

10 then no harm will befall you,
no disaster will come near your tent.

11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;

12 they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.

13 You will tread upon the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.

14 "Because he loves me," says the LORD, "I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.

15 He will call upon me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.

16 With long life will I satisfy him
and show him my salvation."

It sure is better than crying, and the sun is still shinning here in Southern California. God is still on the throne, HE REIGNS - maybe this will usher in the lsat days faster. Even so, come LORD JESUS.

God's word always puts things in perspective, doesn't it!

Here's from an email I got from Kaja:

Psalm 37:1-9

Do not fret because of evil men
or be envious of those who do wrong;
for like the grass they will soon wither,
like green plants they will soon die away.

Trust in the Lord and do good
dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
Delight yourself in the Lord
and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Commit your way to the Lord;
trust in him and he will do this:
He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn,
the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.

Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him;
do not fret when men succeed in their ways
when they carry out their wicked schemes.
Refrain from anger and turn from wrath;
do not fret -it leads only to evil.

For evil men will be cut off,
but those who hope in the Lord will inherit the land.

I voted in my garage....5 mins. tops!!! But since Lucy and Elliot had not reregistered, Lu had to drive from Santa Barbara and El came from the Valley. I got to cook for a crowd. Hurrah (I have missed it.)

Hi, Jackie! I just wanted to drop a little note to say "thanks"! Thank you so much for leaving a comment on Antique Mommy's blog last week that was on advice for new moms! That post meant so much to me and I've printed out all of the comments to reread again and again. So thank you for taking the time to leave a comment and encourage me and other new moms!

Your advice about loving the baby's important and valuable. I hope to do this well with the Lord's help. Hope you have a great weekend.
