Carried

“He tends his flock like a shepherd:
    He gathers the lambs in his arms
and carries them close to his heart…” ~Isaiah 40:11

In the cleft of the rock

What is peace?  Read this story shared by Bill Wilcox:

Someone had offered a large prize for the best painting that depicted the concept of peace.  There were many entries of bucolic pastures with animals grazing, fields of flowers, and other such peaceful settings.  The winning entry was much different.  The scene was a rocky shoreline with towering cliffs in the midst of a frightening storm.  Huge waves were crashing violently over the rocks, and the winds were fierce.  Lightning flashed from the dark and menacing clouds that were dropping torrents of rain on the landscape below.  In a small cleft of rock part way up the cliff above the shoreline was perched a small bird at rest – protected and covered by the rock surrounding it – safe from the vicious storm. 

“He will cover you with his wings; you will be safe in his care; his faithfulness will protect and defend you.” ~Psalm 91:4

Be the bird.  Blessings, Lisa

Using the Rocks

What to do in a land filled with rocks?  Use them.  Barriers, fences, castles, homes.

What to do in a life filled with some hard times?  Try your best to use them.  Strength, endurance, patience, character.
