ok, i hate the wind. i think i am pretty justified in why i hate the wind. I lived in homestead fla for hurricane andrew. so the weather this weekend is supposed to be windy. we have a swirly mass that looks like a hurricane coming in.
so i am unsettled today. i, thankfully, have no reasons to leave this house. the kettle is on, a box of fiber from tax money is here. i will take a picture of all the colours and show you. :-)
so i am going to sharpen pencils, pull out graph paper and play while the kids watch qubo. ( ok i LOVE qubo, it has been so long since there was something decent to watch on weekend mornings and afternoons. and did i mention that dragon knits? what could be more lovely!?)
the last thing we did in our homestead house was pray and my daddy read the following.
so i leave you today with these words of comfort
1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the LORD,
"He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust."
3 Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare
and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5 You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
8 You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.
9 If you make the Most High your dwelling—
even the LORD, who is my refuge-
10 then no harm will befall you,
no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread upon the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
( this is my favourite part, it crescendos into a massive declaration of love )
14 "Because he loves me," says the LORD, "I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call upon me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life will I satisfy him
and show him my salvation."
