The Lord Bless and Keep You

Gatherings on the dining room table
 I received this beautiful tag from my friend, Bonnie.  Bonnie recovering from pneumonia, with her mom just released from the hospital with pneumonia, and a plateful of life challenges.  And she takes the time to craft this delightful tag, with words of blessing.

Numbers 6: 24-26
The Blessing I long to hear every week in worship

AND KEEP YOU......  in looking at the Psalms-- this week was Praying Psalm 4 and in the margin of my Bible are these words.. I don't know who wrote them--  too eloquent to be me.....

Psalm Four--reflections
all beginnings,
unfinished business,
all I started and
couldn’t finish,
all I began
and lost interest in,
all began in hope and 
ending in despair,
all the scattered experiences 
of the day-
assembled and laid 
before God,
then simply turn over 
to sleep.

And as I have days of unrest with unknowing,
 changes or not for the future, and living in unsettled times,
I pray this Psalm in my days and ......
pray the words of blessing over our oldest daughter, Jessica--
born 28 years ago TODAY.
May the Lord bless and keep you as Psalm 4
outlines the KEEPING THAT ONLY GOD can do in our 
every days
ordinary days
extraordinary days

I give Him honor and praise for all the Goodness
He brings to each and every day
in His Keeping of ME.
