Word For It. . .

2Chronicles7:14-“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

Tree of Life

Tree of Life 

We acquired this tapestry a few years ago. I realize it’s a little funky looking (okay, maybe a lot funky) but, for me, it exemplifies the promise regarding the tree of life. If you come to visit, you will not find “hum-drum”! (This is for you, gypsygirl! :-)

God’s Blessings on All.

Proverbs 3:12-18  For whom the Lord loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.

Consider the Value of Wisdom

13 Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding. 14 For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold. 15 She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her. 16 Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour. 17 Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. 18 She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.


Proverbs 15:4  A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit.


Proverbs 13:12 Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life.


Revelation 2:7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.


Revelation 22:2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.


Revelation 22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.


Genesis 2:9  And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.


Genesis 3: 22-24  And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever: 23 Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. 24 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.

    Ain’t that a hoot?! I love that thing! ;-))

    My dad gave me a set of Bible reference books years ago and it was in one of them where I first read that wisdom is personified as a woman in the Bible. Notice that? I looked it up and, sure enough, that’s how it’s written! Interesting, eh? ;-)
    God Bless You, gypsygirl, and Keep You In the Palm of His Hand.

    It shocks me for men to demean women or vice versa, but so often one or the other wants to dominate…I don’t want to be “the boss of anyone” but we all have something to offer. It’s an effort to be assertive without being “mean”; definitely a fine line b/c people are hyper-sensitive to being offended and want to be accommodated.
    Ooo, gypsygirl, by praying for others, it makes me realize how much others struggle with. Just in my immediate family, going down the list, there are things coming against each person that needs God’s help and satan knows to go after the children to get to the parents.
    It’s awful to talk about, but a lady in a city near me had a fight with her boyfriend and lost her job all in the same day (this past Thursday, 11-29-’07). She walked with her 3 and 1 year old children to a convenience store and the lady working knew her so allowed her to use the restroom. Within a few minutes, the 22 yr old mother had stabbed her 2 children to death. Can you imagine? Whatever anyone thinks, we cannot deny that had to be evil forces for her to be able to commit such an act! Witnesses said she showed “no emotion”. A local TV station reported that this happens in the USA several hundred times a year and women are guilty of parental attacks 50% of the time…gentle creatures that we are!
    All we can do is be alert and pray constantly.
