Psalm 88 The Message (MSG)
"I’m written off as a lost cause,
one more statistic, a hopeless case."
Psalm 88 is unrelenting in its despondence, but here is a lesson in not giving up, I was surprised this week to find the lemon tree I had long abandoned to the weeds producing fruit.
And something else I found in the garden this week.
No that is not a hose lying beside the rocks of our refurbished pond it is a Red Bellied Black Snake ... and yes it is venomous. We are having wonderfully warm weather (not fiercely hot like in the lowlands and inland) so snakes are on the move. I understand they like to be near water to eat frogs and lizards and there are plenty of them at the pond.
It is the first time I have seen a snake in the garden. Because we have been enjoying the new tinkling pond we saw what has been no doubt lurking there all along. I will be a little more cautious when out and about in the future!
Psalm 88 New International Version
"Lord, you are the God who saves me;
day and night I cry out to you."
