I've been working long and late (hence posting late again). The other night in the wee small hours when I was switching out the lights to go to bed I found this.
I helped it find a new home out the garden the next morning.
Psalm 140:12-13 The Message (MSG)
"I know that you, God, are on the side of victims,
that you care for the rights of the poor.
And I know that the righteous personally thank you,
that good people are secure in your presence."

It is such a pleasure to walk the paths were all is clipped, swept, mowed and weeded. I'm just loving my garden right now.
Psalm 139:17-18 New International Version
"How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand."

Psalm 139:14-16 New International Version
"I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be."

In the dark shady spot beside my husband's workshop we have started a fern garden. The big lump of cement that has been littering another part of the garden has been put to new purpose as a place to nurture a new fern.
Psalm 139:11-13 New International Version
"If I say, ‘Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,’
even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you.
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb."

One of the delights of the garden are the ever present birds. At this time of year the King Parrots especially like feasting on the seeds on the maple trees so we see them in bigger numbers.
Psalm 139: 9-10 New International Version
"If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast."
