I Lift My Eyes...

My dear Sister-in-Law sent me a Fwd. Fwd. Fwd. e-mail and normally I do not read them - but today I did. The poem attached was "nice" but I really enjoyed the image. I do not know where it came from, but it meant a lot to me, so I thought I would share it with you today.

Our family is going through a very difficult time this fall. If you are a praying people, will you please be lifting us up to the LORD?

A good friend of mine sent this Scripture to me this morning. I am meditating on this Scripture today. I have a habit of putting my name or the person's name in the place of "you or the place of a location.)

Psalm 121

A song of ascents.
1 I lift up my eyes to the hills—
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
3 He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel (Chris and her family and you and yours!)
will neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The LORD watches over you—
the LORD is your shade at your right hand;
6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
7 The LORD will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
8 the LORD will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.
Thank you for praying! Have a blessed day!
