The Way I See It: Joy



Photo prompt:  Molly at Close to Home



I remember my affliction and my wandering, 
   the bitterness and the gall. 
 I well remember them, 
   and my soul is downcast within me. 
Yet this I call to mind 
   and therefore I have hope:


  Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, 
   for his compassions never fail. 
 They are new every morning; 
   great is your faithfulness. 
 I say to myself, “The LORD is my portion; 
   therefore I will wait for him.” 





 An early morning in Morgan Hill, California

When I think of joy I think of morning mercies, new every day, and compassion that never fails.

Therefore I have hope.  AMEN!

Exquisite. Almost makes me retract my claim that Oregon is the most beautiful place in the world. Almost. ;)
