Psalm 37 and some other thoughts

Psalm 37 is one that the Lord has drawn me to many times recently. I (Kristin) have found there's something unique about reading the Psalms in the middle of the night (while feeding Maggie).  Its like they seem deeper, more passionate and tangible. I love some of the promises Psalm 37 offers uncertain times, with protests, economic problems, conflicts, and disease, they are such a refreshment to the soul to cling to.  Here are the verses in particular that have brought peace to my heart.

v.4 'Delight yourself in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.'

v.5 'Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him, and he will act.'

v.7 'Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him...'

v.8 'Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil.'

v.11 'But the meek shall inherit the land and delight themselves in abundant peace.'

I hope these might bring peace to your heart as you meditate on them as they have to mine!

Changing subjects a are a few new pics of little Maggie...she'll be 6 weeks old tomorrow!

She discovered the pacifier 2 weeks ago...its a wonderful thing!

Showing off a dimple.

First wedding! All dressed up & looking good.

trip to the apple orchard! Maggie decided to sleep it out in the sling :)
Poor Maggie came down with a cold yesterday but still flashed me her first real smile this morning. Hoping for some good pics of that soon!
