peace that passes understanding ...

i took this picture in Finland, 2002 ... the scripture was added today ... just giving God the praise for His daily blessings ... and the freedom He extends to any who are in need or hurting ...

I will bless the LORD at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.

My soul shall make her boast in the LORD; the humble shall hear thereof and be glad.

O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt His name together.

I sought the LORD, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.

They looked unto Him and were lightened, and their faces were not ashamed.

This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.

The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear Him, and delivereth them.

O taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man that trusteth in Him!

O fear the LORD, ye His saints! For them that fear Him suffer no want.

The young lions lack and suffer hunger, but they that seek the LORD shall not want any good thing.

Psalm 34: 1-10

Saija - you are a blessing. You always have the best pictures and scriptures to share. Isn't in amazing that you can hear a passage several times and it speaks to you differently each time you hear it? Thanks for sharing.

heb 11:1 ... it is so good to memorize scripture, it really does HELP when you need it ... i wish i would have memorized more, i need to have a bible with me to help my poor memory!

mari ... if people would only read the bible for themselves, God speaks volumes - doesn't He? and as you say, different passages, stand out at different times ... praise God for the Word of God!!!! ... thank for the anniverary greetings and the same to you guys!!!

Saija, I guess I need more practice leaving comments- tried earlier. Anyway, that is a nice post, and I love the scripture that you chose. And while I am thinking of it Happy Anniversary on Friday! If I had your address, I would send you a card. :-) Blessings for you both.
