Slippery


It's wet and slippery outside.  Slippery inside too where the hard raindrops have pressed their way through tiny cracks normally not found. Lots of rain and more forecast for this week.

Reflection:
Psalm 94:18-19 New International Version (NIV)
When I said, “My foot is slipping,”
your unfailing love, Lord, supported me.
When anxiety was great within me,
your consolation brought me joy.

Robed


The naked ladies (Belladonna lilies) are putting on their robes ... autumn must be near.

Reflection:
Psalm 93:1 New International Version (NIV)
"The Lord reigns, he is robed in majesty;
the Lord is robed in majesty and armed with strength"

The fallen


I was walking around the garden photographing the effects of the recent heavy rain storm.  It was a big surprise to find the image below at the bottom of the garden.  I had noticed a few weeks ago that the limb was dying. It's huge.



I guess we were saved having to get someone to cut it down. Where it is we have been able to attack it with chainsaw and clippers ourselves but there is still some work to restore the garden setting to its former peaceful presence.  One thing I know, we will be using the wood for heating and not taking it to the dump. We took some quite small limbs from the pine trees there at Christmas time (all recyclable green waste) and were shocked at the cost.  This one would be much more.  They've put up the fees to cover the carbon tax.

Reflection:
Psalm 92:6-7 New International Version (NIV)
"Senseless people do not know,
fools do not understand,
that though the wicked spring up like grass
and all evildoers flourish,
they will be destroyed forever.


Robert's blog has stopped working. I will continue with the weekly Psalm Challenge independently.

Shelter


It's raining outside.  Storms follow the summer heat.  When lightening flashes, thunder rumbles and rain pours down hard I'm always grateful for the shelter afforded by our cozy home.  I find it is like that during the storms of life too, it is then I am truly grateful to nestle in the shelter of my Lord.

Reflection:
Psalm 91:1
"Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty."
