Psalm 92:12-15The Amplified Bible does these verses total justice in my opinion!
12 The [uncompromisingly] righteous shall flourish like the palm tree [be long-lived, stately, upright, useful, and fruitful]; they shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon [majestic, stable, durable, and incorruptible].
13 Planted in the house of the Lord, they shall flourish in the courts of our God.
14 [Growing in grace] they shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be full of sap [of spiritual vitality] and [rich in the] verdure [of trust, love, and contentment].
15 [They are living memorials] to show that the Lord is upright and faithful to His promises; He is my Rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.
I shall be reading this verses through slowly and thoughtfully again and again....
My reflective soap carving which is now positioned on the bedside table as a reminder at the start and the end of the day.
and on the back....as if I needed reminding....!
A privilege to enjoy a brilliant weekend with some lovely ladies, all 25 of you!
