from whence shall my help come?

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From whence shall my help come?
My help comes from the Lord,
Who made heaven and earth.
He will not allow your foot to slip;
He who keeps you will not slumber.
Behold, He who keeps Israel
Will neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord is your keeper;
The Lord is your shade on your right hand.
The sun will not smite you by day,
Nor the moon by night.
The Lord will protect you from all evil;
He will keep your soul.
THe Lord will guard your going out
and your coming in
From this time forth and forever.

--Psalm 121

I love that psalm. I find that now I hear the psalms sung in my head even when I'm only reading the words.


The Psalm, I recognize - the creation has not given me a message - although I don't think creations necessarily always come with messages - they just are what they are.

What a pleasant thought - just being what you are! Oops, there was a message after all!!!

ss--i guess i am the only one that needs to get a message from my creation...nevertheless, glad you got something out of it. it is what it is, huh?

Hi Lucy,
I guess I'm too in task mode to think about the pic. Being in a practical mood does have it's drawbacks.... :)
I really just wanted to stop by and say I was thinking of you. I just had some fun watching "Charlie Brown's/The Great Pumpkin" on YouTube. :)

I see freedom and joy in the art brought on by the sense of rest and trust from the Psalm. What a lovely combo with the beginning of my day!
thanks, Lucy
