my favourite things/ the path we take


































the path we take
God leads us
where tender mercies lie
He sets his grace about us
and mercy is our guide
----------------------
I will greatly rejoice in the Lord,
My soul shall be joyful in my God;
For He has clothed me with the garments of salvation,
He has covered me with the robe of righteousness,
As a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments,
And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. 
For as the earth brings forth its bud,
As the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth,
So the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.

~Isaiah 61:10,11

  1. Looks like a whole field of diamonds for the bride to adorn herself with. Beautiful picture and words.

  2. The path we take
    The path He gives

    Methodism and Prebyterianism; Wesley or Calvin

    Sorry, Susan, but that's what struck me here, not poetic I know.

    Those spikes of glitter are gorgeous, however. We never get anything like them here.

    Blessings, Dear One,
    Dawn

  3. I think a lot about the paths in my life-I want them to be lit by His Word.
    I love your snow. It doesn't get like that here!
    Love, Debra

  4. The snow and ice crystals are wonderful, yes indeed exotic to us. Our children would love to see snow one day, and they most likely will, but not in our own location. There is beauty and Love in every place, to brighten each day.

    1. Lady-Fi, it is so exciting through these winter days, and we have many, to come out each morning and see the wonders of God's hand... not new flowers in bloom, but the cold in the hands of the Master sculptor and each new Masterpiece, each day different!

  7. Dear Lady-Fi, first of all I want to thank you for your visit on my blog and your kind comment. Out of pure curiosity I came to your blog and was immedialy attracted by your beautiful winter photo in this post! I was curious to learn more about where you live and scrolled down and saw pictures from your snow covered world and also learned about your fate as suggested in the chapel scene. I was also excited about the beauty of your poetic language. I especially loved the scene when you go out into the open at -35°C and breathe in the cold winter air! And what fascinates me very much is that you seem to live in a secluded plase with animals around. I hope to see you again and I send you my best wishes for your treatment. Hugs from Vienna, Maria
