Morning Direction From Scripture 3-29-17

My heart is stirred by a noble theme
    as I recite my verses for the king;
    my tongue is the pen of a skillful writer.

You are the most excellent of men
    and your lips have been anointed with grace,
    since God has blessed you forever.

Gird your sword on your side, you mighty one;
    clothe yourself with splendor and majesty.
In your majesty ride forth victoriously
    in the cause of truth, humility and justice;
    let your right hand achieve awesome deeds.
Let your sharp arrows pierce the hearts of the king’s enemies;
    let the nations fall beneath your feet.
Your throne, O God,[c] will last for ever and ever;
    a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom. Psalm 45:1-6

When you hear the word forever what are the first words that come to mind? What about those words smacks of forever?

Share Your World March 27, 2017

It’s SHARE YOUR WORLD TIME AGAIN!

Share Your World is the weekly blog challenge where our hostess Cee asks five questions. IN answering them we, her contributors, share our world.

You can join in the fun by clicking the underlined link above.

Here are her questions and my answers.

Does your first or middle name have any significance (or were you named after another family member)?

My middle name is Elon. It is a family name stretching back to at least the revolution and apparently was a middle name even further back because there are lots of _____________ Elon Lillies throughout the world.

Music or silence while working?

I like to have soft instrumental music playing in the background while I am writing.

Lately Dappytkeys has been my goto.

If you had a special place for your three most special possessions (not including photos, electronics, people or animals), what would they be?

my electronic piano (which is currently in my office)

My Great Great Aunt’s tea set (which is also currently at my office)

My llama (which I currently don’t own but who doesn’t want a llama…or a pushmepullyou)

Image result for pushmepullyou

Okay yes these are animals but I couldn’t resist. I suppose if I had to choose an innanimate object that goes along with the llama I would say my spinning wheel which I also don’t own or know how to use, but if I had a llama I might learn.

🙂

The Never List: What are things you know you never will do?

I will never truly die. This body may fade and pass away but I have a new one waiting for me in Heaven.

I will never run out of love for Jesus. He has done so much for me. How can I but praise Him?

Pretty much that is all I can think of. There are a lot of things I would not think of doing but at this point in my life I have learned to never say never because I have gone through a lot of things and done a lot of things I said I would never do.

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking

forward to in the week coming up? 

I am grateful that I got to see Beauty and the Beast. What a great movie! And this week I am just having a lot of fun working on the book.

Going back to this afternoon’s meditation, does your picture of the nations falling beneath the feet of Jesus change any of your current expectations of the nations? How?
