"O afflicted city, lashed by storms and not comforted.
I will build you with stones of turquoise,
your foundations with sapphires.
I will make your battlements of rubies,
your gates of sparkling jewels,
and all you walls of precious stones.
All your sons will be taught by the Lord,
and great will be your children's peace.
In righteousness you will be established:
Tyranny will be far from you;
you will have nothing to fear.
Terror will be far removed;
it will not come near you."
this verse struck a chord with me.
i love the apple orchard and that special family day that we had because i desire peace and joy for my family.
there are few days that i find it here, in this world.
but God promises me more....someday i will find my peace and all my fears will be far removed from me.
and i will walk in the house (and orchards) of the Lord, forever.....
