The Light of the Lord’s Face: Still Saturday & Sunday!

“What can bring us happiness?” many say.
Lift up the light of your face upon us, O LORD. 

You have put into my heart a greater joy

than they have from abundance of corn and new wine. 

I will lie down in peace and sleep comes at once.

For you alone, LORD, make me dwell in safety. 

 Psalm 4:7-9, the Grail translation

Joining with Deidra at JumpingTandem and Sandy at SandraHeskaKing (widget promised soon!) for their new(ish) invitations to be still on the weekends.
What a lovely idea.
It’s orchid season here on the central coast and the warehouses are full to bustin’ with glorious color and shape.

  1. Oh….that verse. In a season of great fear, that was the verse I held tightly.

    Have a wonderful day in the Lord, sweet friend.

  2. What a glorious sight. Happy Sunday.

  3. “For you alone, LORD, make me dwell in safety.”

    That. Exactly.

    Orchid season….beauty. Isn’t California wonderful?

  4. A taste of spring, lovely. Thank you.

  5. “Greater joy than an abundance of corn…” Here in Nebraska – where the college team is the Cornhuskers, and raising corn is a top industry – that’ll preach!

  6. Beautiful..sight with all the snow here!! Happy Sunday

  7. Their faces are all joy. Such beautiful pictures for those precious verses Diana.

  8. I love that yellow! I have a thing for yellow; it’s a holy color for me.

  9. What beauty… in words and photos. The upturned “faces” remind me a bit of our winter pansies, lifted to the sun.
